In the past, the conditions on similar companion certs have made them close to worthless. For example, they may require more expensive booking classes (H V M L K or W) that mean that two cheaper class tickets end up being about the same price.
The note in the email said no minimum fare restrictions apply but I am still a bit skeptical as well. I'm expecting to make my next set of applications in the second week of OCT so I'll be trying to get AA to give me a disclosure of the companion cert terms by then.
