The American Airlines AAdvantage SimplyMiles program has quite a few new offers out, including one good for 1,000 miles when you join AARP. Keep in mind that anyone can join AARP (you do not need to be retired or of retirement age — I’ve been a member for several years) and when you join with auto-renewal, it’s just $12 for the first year. If you value the miles at better than 1.2c each, this deal could be worth it even if you didn’t have any use for the membership.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Expires 6/3020
  • Valid when you activate the offer and make payment with a card enrolled in your SimplyMiles account
  • Limit 1 redemption
  • Must add the offer to your card prior to redemption

Quick Thoughts

AARP membership isn’t wildly valuable, but I’ve kept a membership because if I use it once to good value on a British Airways ticket it will have paid for itself for quite a while.

You can currently pay $12 for the first year with auto-renewal ($16 per year thereafter, cancel any time) or join for 3 years for $30 or 5 years for $45.

In addition to the British Airways discount, there are some car rental and restaurant discounts. See this page for a list.

Stephen Pepper also points out that they sometimes sell discounted gift cards, which could line up for a good deal.

Remember to use a Mastercard linked with your SimplyMiles account — you don’t need to click through SimplyMiles but rather use a card linked with the program to pay.
