I’ve written that the Barclays US Airways card will be discontinued once the merger between American Airlines and US Airways is complete.

This means this card will be eventually phased out.  I don’t know the exact date it will be unavailable, but it will be unavailable at some point!

And by next year, the 2 airlines will almost be completely merged.

I’ve written about the changes coming to the Barclays US Airways card and how some of its benefits are changing.  One major change is the discontinuation of the annual Companion Certificate that comes with the card at the end of 2014.

The certificate lets you bring up to 2 companions with you on US Airways operated flights for $99 plus taxes and fees, as long as you’ve paid at least $250 for your round-trip ticket.  You can use it to fly coach within the US (not including Hawaii and Alaska) and Canada.

Emily recently applied for the Barclays US Airways card and received her Companion Certificate in the mail.  There’s a lot of fine print and some tricks to booking with it, but I’ll show you how!

I’ve written that the Barclays US Airways card will no longer be offered after the American Airlines and US Airways merger is complete.  And folks who currently have the Barclays US Airways card will be switched over to a new Barclays American Airlines card.

One of the perks of the Barclays US Airways card that will be discontinued when the card changes to the Barclays American Airlines card is the Companion CertificateIt can be used to bring up to 2 companions with you on a US Airways operated flight for $99 plus taxes and fees when you purchase a round-trip ticket for at least $250.  You can use it to fly coach within the US (not including Hawaii and Alaska) and Canada.

But if you get the card, how long is the certificate valid?
