    Ben, So ahh do you ever use your AARP discount anywhere else besides BA? As in a restaurant? Just wondering what kind of incredulous looks you get and if they even accept it. I just signed up last month to take advantage of a lucrative Schwab offer, I'm not as young as you, but I certainly don't look 50. I'm also really frugal and don't like paying more than I have to.

    Also, can I can cancel a BA award (on American) within 24 hours of departure? Do I have to call in within that 24 hour window?

    @ Randall -- Within 24 hours you can't get the Avios of a BA award refunded anymore, but rather can only get the taxes refunded. As far as the AARP discount goes, have only used it for BA flights. Hah.
