As well as collecting Avios via avios.com and/or British Airways Executive Club, it is also possible to earn points via Iberia Plus, the Iberia frequent flyer scheme. Any Avios you earn in Iberia Plus can be moved over via ‘Combine My Avios’ once your Iberia account is 90 days old.
One reason to have an Iberia Plus account is that Iberia runs regular Avios redemptions sales such as this one. To take advantage, you need to move Avios points over to Iberia Plus. However Iberia Plus has a nasty little rule – on top of making you wait 90 days from opening your account, you cannot transfer in or out of the scheme until your account is ‘active’, ie has earned 1 Avios point.
Iberia has launched a new competition called “The Great Avios Conquest”. Taking part earns you a whopping 50 Avios! The most important thing, though, is that these 50 Avios will activate your account and allow you to transfer in or out. The next time Iberia has a redemption sale, you will be able to participate.
This is how to play:
Open the July-August of the Iberia online magazine by clicking here
Scroll to the page marked “The Great Avios Conquest” and click Start
Answer the four questions – the answers are My Shoes, La Panza es Primero, All of the above and Cash card
Input your details and 50 Avios will be credit to your Iberia account. The time frame is unknown.
If you do not already have an Iberia Plus account, you can sign up here. Click on the Iberia Plus link in the menu bar and select ‘Register Now’.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (May 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards. You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
