Becoming An AARP Member
If you’re not a member, then you can easily join, and it is pretty cheap. In case you didn’t know, AARP it’s open to anyone. You do not have to be “old”. I have a membership myself and it comes with some good benefits that can easily cover the annual fee. You get car rental discounts, hotel and fares discounts, 10% off at AT&T, discounted car insurance, discounts at few chain restaurants, drugstore discounts and much more. You can check all benefits here.
Right now you can sign up for even less than the standard price, thanks to a 25% discount on one year memberships. If you sign up here, you will only pay $12 instead of $16.
First and Business Class tickets are extremely expensive on British Airways if you are paying full price out of pocket. However it is possible to find some deals depending on your travel dates.
Keep in mind that you can also get an extra 10% discount when you use your British Airways Visa Signature card with promotion code: CARDOFFERU.
