Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

50 free Avios in Iberia Plus – zero effort required!

Iberia Plus has launched a Summer competition.  I won’t bore you with the details because it is pretty irrelevant to almost all HFP readers.  Basically, you receive one entry into a prize draw to win one of 300 flights for every points-earning transaction you make with Iberia Plus.

What IS relevant is this:

Iberia is offering you 50 Avios just for reading about the competition.

All you need to do is visit this special Summer Flights web page and enter your Iberia Plus number.  50 Avios will be coming your way – note, though, that they do NOT post instantly.

(If that link doesn’t work – it seems to cause trouble in some browsers – use www.iberiasummerflights.com  This is a Spanish page but is easy to follow, just put your IB number in the white box at the bottom!)

Whilst 50 Avios is hardly enough to get excited about, it does have one important benefit.  It ‘activates’ your Iberia Plus account.

You can only transfer Avios in or out of Iberia Plus if you account is 90 days old AND you have earned 1 Avios point.  This is the easy way of earning that 1 Avios point.

(Once your account is active, of course, you can transfer your 50 points over to ba.com via ‘Combine My Avios‘ and add them to your main Avios balance.)

The key reason to transfer Avios points INTO Iberia Plus is that Iberia does not charge fuel surcharges on Iberia redemptions when booked via the Iberia website.  BA does charge fuel surcharges.

This means a typical Iberia redemption, such as Madrid to Havana, will be £250 cheaper for the exact same flight when booked on iberia.com vs ba.com.

I wrote more about these savings in this article.  Note, though, that the article has not been updated to reflect the new Avios pricing post-April 28th.
