Planning a quick trip to Europe this winter or spring? If you’re an American Airlines Business Extra member, you can now save a $150 discount on round-trip Transatlantic flights booked in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) on British Airways, though technically the discount code should work for anyone. Note that this discount is only a hair higher than the $130 off you’ll normally receive when booking BA premium economy through AARP.
This is a limited time offer, as you have to book on the British Airways website by November 16, 2015 (that’s five days!), and travel must be completed by June 30, 2016. Use the promotion code BA4BUSINESS during booking. Note that you may save more with the 10% CARDOFFERU discount code that you can use when paying with a Visa card — unfortunately you can’t stack these codes.
This offer is valid only for US residents paying in USD for flights from the US that are operated by British Airways or OpenSkies in World Traveller Plus or Premium Plus (though we were getting an error when applying the code to OpenSkies flights). You can earn Business Extra points on flights operated by British Airways, and the discount can be applied to up to eight tickets on the same flight. At a total of up to $1,200, that’s an opportunity for some real savings.
Of course, with any deal, it’s best to consider your other options. Take the below sample flight, for example:
As you can see above, you’ll save $150 when using the BA4BUSINESS code.
However, when applying CARDOFFERU, the discount was nearly $50 more. Note that you’ll need to pay with Visa to use that particular code, but this is a good opportunity to earn 2x on airfare with the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. With lower fares, you’ll save more with the BA4BUSINESS code, but be sure to try both options if you’re able to check out with a Visa card.
