Thanks everyone for all your help. I think my 4th, coupon is actually a lounge pass. I could have sworn I used to get 2 upgrade coupons per year. No problem, I did put a bid in to upgrade from coach to business class. If I don't get it I will just ride coach going out and use the upgrade coupon on the return trip.
If it’s through FNBO, you only get one upgrade coupon per year
 
Is online booking using a companion coupon possible? I talked with an online agent who recommended I create the booking for one person, and said the 2nd traveler would also be recognized. But, I've created the booking both on amtrak.com and the app (without hitting the "Purchase" button) and I still see just one traveler. Does anybody have any experience with this?

Yes. It should show two travelers.

On the website, you book using a companion coupon by starting out by specifying two adults, and selecting the "add coupon" box. If you are signed on to your AGR account, putting the cursor in the coupon number will generate a drop down of all your coupons. Select the companion coupon you want to use and continue the reservation for two. The charge will be with the coupon applied. Note companion coupons only apply to rail fare.

I've ONLY booked online with the Companion Coupon. When searching for your trip, choose two travelers, not one. It will ask for the 2nd traveler's ID info as you go through the process.

Thanks. When I tried creating the booking with two passengers and the companion coupon the pricing was the same as for two passengers without the coupon. This is my first use of a companion coupon. Does the price revert to the single passenger price when you make the purchase. Or is this not such a good deal after all?

On the website you need to select the 'add coupon' button, enter and select the coupon before doing the search. If done correctly, the price for two will show up as the price for one.

Yep, trimetbusfan is correct with the additional details. In fact, if you are logged into your account, your coupon should show on the Add Coupon in the dropdown. If not, you can enter the code manually.

If the coupon "takes" it will show the price with the coupon applied. If it shows the two passenger price the coupon was not applied for whatever reason. It can be a bit touchy.

I did a companion coupon booking last week and the coupon didn't take in the first try. I just backed out and started over, clearing cache just for luck. The second time through it showed the correct price and I completed the booking.
