Via View From the Wing, you can book certain Iberia flights for 25% off the normal award price.

And if you meet certain conditions, you can transfer points from British Airways to Iberia.  And use your stash of British Airways Avios points for this deal!

Iberia Sale From 4 US Cities

Use Iberia Avios Points to Visit the Stunning City of Madrid! Or Just to Get to Europe at a Discount.

I’ll tell you what you need to know about this deal.

Certain Iberia Flights Are 25% Off

Link:   Iberia 25% Award Discount

Link:   Iberia Award Chart

Through February 14, 2017 (Valentine’s Day), you can book certain Iberia award flights for 25% fewer points.  Travel must be completed by June 14, 2017.  This discount is good from 4 US cities:

  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Miami
  • New York

And there are several blackout dates:

  • April 7 to 18
  • April 21 to 24
  • April 28 to 29
  • May 2 to 3
  • May 6 to 8
  • June 9 to 12

With this deal, you can book one-way flights to Europe for as little as 12,750 Iberia Avios points in coach, or 25,500 Iberia Avios points in Business Class.

And you can transfer British Airways Avios points to Iberia to book these flights.

Note:   You will NOT be able to transfer points between British Airways and Iberia unless both accounts have been open for at least 90 days.  And each account must have had previous activity (like earning or transferring points).

Iberia is also an American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner, but transfers can take ~3 days.  So I don’t recommend transferring AMEX Membership Rewards points to Iberia for this deal.

Is This a Good Deal?

These prices are a great deal.  A Business Class seat for 25,500 points between the US and Europe is excellent.  For example, a one-way flight from Chicago to Madrid in Business Class on other airlines would cost you:

  • 57,500 United Airlines miles
  • 57,500 American Airlines miles
  • 62,500 Flying Blue miles (but taxes and fees can be high)

Remember, with this Iberia discount, you HAVE to fly to Madrid.  But it’s really cheap to hop around Europe once you’re there.

Iberia Avios points are generally more valuable than British Airways Avios points because Iberia does NOT add high fuel surcharges like British Airways.  As long as you’re flying on Iberia planes, the taxes and fees should be much lower than if you were to use British Airways Avios points.

However, if your goal is simply to get to Europe (and not necessarily Madrid), you can still do well with British Airways Avios points.  Read my post on how to use British Airways Avios points to fly to Europe for cheap with British Airways Avios points from 6 US cities.  You can fly to Europe one-way in the off-peak season for just 13,000 British Airways Avios points in coach.  With minimal fuel surcharges!

Bottom Line

Iberia is having a 25% off award sale to Madrid from 4 US cities:

  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Miami
  • New York

You can get a one-way coach award flights for as little as 12,750 Iberia Avios points, and Business Class for 25,500 Iberia Avios points!  But you MUST book this deal by tomorrow, February 14, 2017, for travel by June 14, 2017.

If you’ve had both a British Airways and Iberia account open for at least 90 days (with activity in each account), you can transfer British Airways Avios points to Iberia instantly.

But I don’t recommend moving American Express Membership Rewards points to Iberia to take advantage of this deal, because transfers can take ~3 days.

Let me know if you book a flight!
