If you know where you'd like to go in 2010, you could book it while on board ... and it can always be transferred to your TA who might get you even better rates.
Just a correction on this, you don't both need one and it's pretty much a waste to use both on the same booking. One FCC is good for two people, it's written right on the confirmation. You buy an FCC and then when it comes time to book, you can pay the $100 deposit for the second person at that time. Both of you get the onboard credit.
