Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

125 free Avios in Iberia Plus for 30 seconds work

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Spanish online shopping group alice.es is offering 125 Avios to Iberia Plus members who sign up for its newsletters.

You need to go to this link on the Iberia website and then click on the words Alice.es at the bottom of the main body of text.  This will take you to a sign-up page which, whilst in Spanish, is relatively easy to figure out.

I did this offer last time it came around, and the 100 Avios points posted within a few weeks.

One good reason for doing this is that it will make your Iberia Plus account ‘active’.  You will then be able to search for Reward Flight Saver availability, for example, which cannot be done on an account with a zero balance.

You can, of course, also transfer the 125 Avios to avios.com or British Airways Executive Club.  However, your Iberia Plus account needs to be 90 days old before you can do this.

In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.

You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:

    Seemed easy to do. Especially using Google Chrome which translated for me. Note that after signing up I received an e-mail from Alice.es asking me to confirm the subscription. I don’t know if this affects the free miles, but it is worth checking your inbox and clicking on the confirmation link anyway.

    Thank you Raffles, another good tip, thank you and your readers for all the hard work to help us all fly for free. Ed

    I’ve signed up as well, though didn’t see any mention of the number 125 anywhere! But I’m sure it’ll land up, and will be handy to have an active iberia plus account 🙂

    • Raffles says:

      If you go the Iberia website you will see the 125 points offer mentioned in a banner ad, along with the other offers that are shown on the website.

      • ups says:

        Pretty sure don’t see that one, just one about x2 avios. Anyway don’t worry about it!

          “¡Hasta 1.500 Avios y 10€ de regalo, con Alice la vuelta al cole es más fácil!
          Sólo por registrarse le regalamos 125 Avios”

          It also repeats this in handwritten script on the sign-up page.

  • Mat says:

    Used Google Translate to understand most of it. Quite easy to do. Another 125 Avios to add to the collection!
