Save 5% Off Domestic and 10% Off Transatlantic American Airlines Tickets!

Use my VIP Promo Code FCJAMES315 for an annual rate of $395 (vs. the standard rate of $795), valid through September 5, 2015.


FoundersCard is an interesting membership only program that gives you unique discounts and privileges at a variety of merchants, including many travel partners. While it’s expensive at $395 a year, it can be a tremendous value:

  • 15% Off Silvercar rentals, and free replenishment of gas upon return
  • 20% Virgin Atlantic flights originating in the US, plus Flying Club Silver Elite
  • Complimentary HHonors Gold Status
  • Complimentary Cathay Pacific Parco Polo Club Silver Status
  • …and more!

Now, you can get a 5% discount on domestic flights and 10% off transatlantic flights purchased by November 1.

There are several blackout dates you want to keep in mind (all the traditional holidays and busy times):

  • September 3-7, 2015
  • October 8-12, 2015
  • November 19-December 1, 2015
  • December 17-31, 2015
  • January 1-10, 2016

This can be an absolutely fantastic benefit, though it’s worth keeping in mind that many transatlantic fares will be cheaper using an AARP $400 discount when booked through British Airways. That said, the domestic discount can’t be beat, and it is rare for there to be a standard, ongoing discount for domestic travel, outside of corporate contracts.

To redeem this benefit, you simply need to request a code which will be emailed to you. Easy enough.
