British airways mileage bonus with AARP

Reading through the terms/conditions and #7 exclusions "....(ii)airline industry discounted fares...., senior citizen fares..." If I book business class fare using an AARP code which gives me approx $400 r/t discount, would I still be entitled to the mileage bonus? I am NOT a senior citizen. AARP allows registration at 50. But is this considered a discounted fare which would exclude my receiving bonus miles? If so, it might be worth paying the extra $400 and receiving 25K miles, but I would love not to do this.

The AARP discount is a discount off of a regular, published fare. The AARP discount does not convert a regular fare to a senior-citizen fare. (I'm not even sure that BA even offers senior-citizen fares currently.)

If you have -- or can get -- the Chase/BA Visa card, that card provides a 10% discount on TATL BA fares. Although the offer terms state that the discount cannot be combined with any other "offer," some FTers have reported being able to stack the Chase/BA discount on top of the AARP discount. Details on the Chase/BA discount here:

YMMV.
