Using the “CARDOFFERU” code
After reading several posts, it seems to me that many people even without having the BA cc card successfully used the “cardofferu” code to get the extra 10% discount after getting the $400 discount by linking to BA through AARP. Is it ok to claim it even if I do not have that card? Has anyone ever had problems with this? I am thinking of getting some tickets on BA website using my AARP discount, but was not sure whether I should try claiming the extra 10% discount by using the “cardofferu” code. Thank you.
While it sounds good and kudos to the people who have done so and was successful, I think I’d avoid it, personally. I dont want to keep thinking about whether they might cancel my ticket or claw back the discount or not. I’m not in the position to pay a ton of money on flights and a lot of the deals where this stacks on top of the AARP discount means that 10% is under $200, I’ll live. Or just get the card – using the code once for those deals already more than covers the annual fee anyway
[USER=29]@David W[/USER]: Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking about, that is why I did not do it. Risking a trip, and thousands of dollars over a few hundred dollars savings is not worth for me either!
