  1. Whoa, thanks for the heads up! I was actually just looking for a way to activate my account. This looks easy enough. I was going through some weird partners of Iberia airlines to get those points, like signing up for Spanish classes. This seems more reliable. I have a bunch of Chase points I would like to convert to Iberia points!

  2. Dan's the Man

    Thanks Dan!

  3. I just did this yesterday, thanks for publicizing it more widely. Just out of curiosity, have you received the avios yet? Mine haven’t shown up yet…

  4. probably will take several weeks Heath…… I just got my miles from an AA promo game and it took several weeks. Probably not useful if you need them immediately.

  5. So what exactly is the half-life of these magical free 50 points?
    What’s Iberia’s expiration policy?

  6. Thank you, Daraius. Just completed thanks to you, for the Mrs. and for me. This is very helpful. Much obliged.

  7. Thanks Daraius!

  8. Is it just me? When I try to redeem avios with OneWorld, San Francisco is not available as origin. SJC is there but not OAK.
    I have 0 avios on IB but plenty on BA. thanks for the free miles, maybe that will help.

  9. I can’t get the first quiz page to work. When I click on myShoes, it does register my answer. I even tried a different browser and signing in to my Iberia account ahead of time. Are others unable to proceed?

  10. .

  11. I tried it with both chrome and IE and it didn’t work (though I got further with IE), it only worked when I used firefox.
    Thank you for the tip

  12. I tried to enter my iberia plus number in the box for the 50points contest but nothing happens!

  13. I never had an Iberia account prior to today, and have failed to create one. It stumbles upon submission of the form, asking me to review my document number (and advising that if it’s correct, I should contact their support #). I specified that my document was “Passport” and included my U.S. passport #, which I verified more than once. Anyone else encounter this? Any idea why this thing seems to think a passport # (which it most likely can’t submit to the U.S. State Dept. for validation anyway) isn’t valid and won’t accept the form submission?

  14. Hasn
    t been working for at least a week. It is non working post. ignore it. It has been 6 days and I still got no 50 avios

  15. If I transfer my British Airways AVIOS points to Iberia, wait a few months, and then transfer them back to BA will it reset the expiration timer for my BA points?

  16. I answered my own question. Apparently I did still have an Iberia Plus account after all, and so my passport number was already on file with that account. It would have been more helpful if they had pointed out that I already had an account, or made it possible to recover the card number and not just the PIN. For some reason I had never recorded my card number in my electronic repository and had to find the physical card (among MANY others) in my safe. But now I should have some Avios on their way to me, and a soon-to-be active account. Thanks Daraius!

  17. Game won’t work on Firefox and on IE I get to the first uestion but clicking on MyShoes doesn’t select it. Can’t play.

  19. I did this 2 weeks ago. Points still have not posted.

  20. The game will not accept my wife’s Iberia account number, even when I copy/paste it from her logged-in Iberia Avios page. Weird.

  21. The game would not work for me using Internet Explorer. But I switched to Chrome and it worked just fine.

    Thanks Daraius

  22. Tried for a week or so but the game didn’t work. Tried Chrome and it worked fine.

  23. Can’t get to contest on Chrome, IE or Firefox. Instead get some Interdomain Spanish page.
