Heading to Spain With Iberia Avios Points?  Take the Scenic Drive From Barcelona to Tossa de Mar

Iberia Is Having an Incredible Promotion!

Iberia is Spain’s national airline.  Collecting Iberia Avios points is handy for folks who live in the US, because it’s a partner with American Airlines.  So you can use your points for American Airlines flights!

Iberia has a distance-based award chart, which means the number of points you’ll pay depends on the length of your flight.  For example, with Iberia, a round-trip coach award flight within the US costs:

  • 11,000 Iberia Avios points for flights under 600 miles
  • 12,000 Iberia Avios points for flights between 601 and 1,000 miles
  • 17,000 Iberia Avios points for flights between 1,001 and 2,000 miles
  • 23,000 Iberia Avios points for flights between 2,001 and 4,000 miles

That’s extremely cheap!  And with Iberia’s current promotion, you can “buy” Iberia Avios for as little as ~0.311 cents each!  Meaning a round-trip flight under 600 miles would cost you only ~$34, before airport taxes and fees (0.31 cents each X 11,000 Avios points).  Here’s how to do it!

What’s the Deal?

When you click this link and purchase a ticket from Iberia by June 24, 2018, you’ll get 9,000 bonus Iberia Avios!  The points will be deposited into your account within 10 days of your purchase.  You do NOT have to actually fly to get the points.

The promotion allows you to earn up to 90,000 bonus points.  So you can buy 10 one-way flights and earn 90,000 Iberia Avios points!  That’s more than enough for 2 round-trip coach flights between the US and Europe.  Or 1 round-trip Business Class flight between the US and Europe!

34,000 Iberia Avios and ~$98 in Taxes and Fees Is a Steal With This Deal!

The trick is finding the CHEAPEST IBERIA TICKETS.  It doesn’t matter where they originate or where they’re going, because you don’t need to fly them.  The cheapest I see at the moment are one-way flights from Santander (SDR) to Madrid (MAD), any time in March 2019.  You’ll pay $28 per flight, and earn 9,000 Iberia Avios points.  Which means you’re paying ~0.31 cents per point ($28 per flight / 9,000 points).

We’ve occasionally seen $19 flights pop up, but I’m not finding any at the moment.

You’ll Want to Find the Cheapest Flights Available

If you book a one-way Business Class flight to Europe on Iberia, you’ll pay 34,000 Iberia Avios and ~$98 in fees.  That comes out to ~$215 after taxes & fees (0.31 cents per point X 34,000 + $98 in taxes & fees)!

I bought 10 one-ways with this deal and spent ~$270.  I should earn enough points for 8 round-trip flights to Chicago from my home airport.  That’s INSANE.

There are a few terms & conditions you should know:

  • You must purchase your flights before June 24, 2018
  • You can earn a maximum of 90,000 bonus Avios per member
  • Flights you purchase must be operated by Iberia, Iberia Express or Air Nostrum
  • If you request a refund, the promotional Avios will be withdrawn from their account
  • You must redeem your bonus Avios by December 1, 2018, or they will be withdrawn from your account

That last term is a big one.  If you don’t use your bonus Avios by December 1, 2018, you lose them.  However, it sounds like you only need to book future travel by December 1, not actually take the flight.

This is an incredible deal, and if you don’t jump on it now, all the cheapest flights will sell out!!  Check out the deal here.  And here’s some more information about the Iberia award program.

Note:   This deal isn’t for everyone.  Especially if American Airlines doesn’t service your home airport!

Thanks to You Have Been Upgraded and Frequent Miler for noticing this deal!

Bottom Line

You can buy Iberia Avios points for as little as 0.31 cents each!  That’s AMAZING, because you can get MUCH more value from them than that.

For example, a lie-flat Business Class seat from Chicago to Madrid costs just 34,000 Iberia Avios points and $98 in fees!  That would cost you $2,000+ otherwise!

Has anyone actually received the bonus miles in their account yet?? I haven’t even been able to login the past two days, it just says “an error has occurred in the login”

We just published an update on the promotion.

You might want to try resetting your PIN through the Iberia app or contacting them.

I booked ten of these $34 flights. My Iberia Plus number is listed on all ten of my confirmation emails. However, when I log into my Iberia account and click “Manage Bookings”, my number is not attached. I was able to manually add my IB# to my flight info there. Many other people have reported this too. I think it is wise to double check your bookings as well just to be safe.

Good tip Forest! I’m always paranoid and triple check everything 🙂

Do I need to have avios in my iberia plus account before I can look up flights and see how many avios is needed? I don’t have any avios at the moment and was trying to look up award flight and it will not allow me to proceed to see how many is needed. Thanks!

Iberia has a distance-based award chart, so the number of Avios points you’ll pay will depend on the length of your flight.

This link might help, and it also has a link to the Iberia Award Chart:

Success early this afternoon purchasing the full amount of November $34 (USD, not €) tix from MAD to SVQ.

Earlier the website was almost unusable, but then it started behaving.

I was finally able to register this morning and booked six flights, fingers crossed everything works out and the 54K miles appear within ten days! I found a bunch of flights from Madrid to Santiago de Compostela for $34.
