50 free Avios via Iberia Plus – and it ‘activates’ your Iberia account

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

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.

Input your details and 50 Avios will be credit to your Iberia account.  The time frame is unknown.

    I do not have a household account but also have issues using combine my avios. Will try changing the password to a numeric one and see if that helps

  2. I am at the last page and entered the IB XXXX number but no response. What sort of number should I enter ? with IB or with out IB ?

  3. JamesW says:

    Worked for me. Cheers. Mind you, not seen the avios posted yet !

  4. Andrew says:

    Has anyone actually received these points into their IB + account as yet…….? Hoping it is just a bit of a wait rather than mine didn’t go through! cheers

  5. Just checked my account…nada

  6. I signed up for this over a week ago and still no avios is posted, my account is 6 months old.
    I wish there was another working promo!

  7. avidsaver says:

    Same here. I took part when first posted and still no sign of the 50 Avios in my account. Has anyone got their points yet?

  8. JamesW says:

    No sign of them in mine either yet but I’m not worried !!
    Just completed the other offer too so as long as one of the sets of 50 points posts I’ll be happy ! Just want to activate the account really so I can transfer in Avios when required (as I don’t like being conned out of the obscene surcharges BA add).
    I wouldn’t mind as much if their product was top-class but its just not. Compare it to Emirates and BA becomes an absolute joke. I also can’t believe that they are reducing seat width & pitch in Europe (including club class) when as a society we are getting larger, not smaller !! Now even more people will roll their belly fat over the arm rest into my space and sweat on me.
    The fact they’re doing it in Club Europe too is unbelievable. What on earth is the justification for reducing seat width there ? All its doing is making the space between the two seats (a table) a bit wider when the gap was already more than adequate and could even itself have been reduced to give MORE width to the club seats.
    Anyway, that’s a different topic but I am utterly bemused by BA’s strategy of making their product even less appealing – AND FOR NO GOOD REASON !!

  9. Anyone got these points in the end?

    Iberia seem really lazy I am still waiting on the above 50 + 50 from the other day and 8k points from The Economist subscription I signed up for in June….
