Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

320 free Avios for everyone via Iberia’s e-shopping mall

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

Iberia, BA’s sister airline, recently launched its own online shopping mall called Iberia PluStore.  This is very similar to the British Airways Gate 365 operation, allowing you to earn a few Avios by funnelling your online shopping via their platform.

There are currently two very generous offers on Iberia PluStore which allow you to earn Avios points purely for signing up to a service.  There is no obligation to make a purchase.

Before we continue, please remember the following:

You will need an Iberia Plus Avios account to take part.  If you don’t have one, you can sign up via the Iberia home page.

If you use a new Iberia account, you will not be able to move the Avios across to BA or until your account is 90 days old.

After 90 days, you can use ‘Combine My Avios’ on, or to move the points out of Iberia.

The first is Amazon’s BuyVIP service.

Amazon is offering 165 Avios in Iberia Plus just for registering for this Spanish ‘discounted fashion buying club’.

Click here to be taken to the Amazon Buy VIP page and then click ‘Shop Now’.  If you have trouble getting through to the PluStore, change the language option on to ‘Spain – English’.

Signing up only takes a few seconds – all it wants is your name, email address and whether you prefer male or female fashion deals!

You should be able to follow the instructions in Spanish.  However, remember that Google Chrome has a translate option if you right click.

The second is Showroomprive.

Showroomprive offers 154 Avios in Iberia Plus for signing up.  It is a similar service to Amazon’s BuyVIP, offering exclusive online fashion sales.

Click here to be taken to the Showroomprive page and then click ‘Shop Now’.

Again, signing up is a 30 second affair and you are good to go!

  • Sasha says:

    It doesn’t ask me to enter the details or preference, once I’m logged in it redirects me to the IberiaPluStore straightaway. Is it just me?

  • Alvin says:

    165+154 =319, not 320? Where is the last Avios 😛

    • Johnnycl says:

      The Amazon one tracks as 166…perhaps Iberia just wanted to make it a nice round number!

      • Alvin says:

        Any idea how long it takes to track? I’m signed up an hour ago, no sign of anything 🙁

        • Johnnycl says:

          It should show in your click history straight away but as it says in the article, took a few days for the email confirmation to come through and appear in tracking.

  • BeThatGuy says:

    On both pages, I get:

    We’re sorry
    The page you have requested is not available

  • linda says:

    Asked me to sign in then sorry page not available.

  • Craig says:

    When I changed the language on to Spanish it started working.

    • Raffles says:

      Which is what I wrote 🙂

      • Craig says:

        I had the shopping sites set to Spanish but Iberia as English. It needed both set to Spanish to work. As an aside I’m flying Iberia from Madrid to Havana late Feb in Club if you want any pics or a short review. It wasn’t a bad deal considering the £2500 each Virgin wanted in Premium Economy or the 10 hour economy night flight with Thomas Cook.

        • Martin says:

          I changed both to Spanish and still won’t work.

          • Martin says:

            Correction – working now. I had selected England – Spanish, not Spain – English as instructed in the main article.

        • Rob says:

          Thanks Craig. I’ve already covered IB’s new business class but it might be interesting to hear your views on Havana.

          • Craig says:

            Will do, spending 3 nights in Havana and then 11 nights at the Royalton Hicacos in Varadero.

          • Stuart says:

            I definitely want to hear more. I’m doing the same trip in jun (except with VS UC redemption). Did you opt for Diamond Club at the Royalton?

          • Craig says:

            Drop me an email Stuart craig at and I’ll let you know. No Diamond Club for me, it wasn’t even available as an option when I booked through the agent.

  • harry says:

    I think you get the points for clicking ‘add to favourites’

    • Tilly71 says:

      How do you click add to favourites?
      Doesn’t show up in your avios points history in ib plus immediately, I got the two emails so hopefully will show in a few days.

    • TomTom says:

      How do you add to favourites for the points?

      • Andrew H says:

        I don’t know if you have to add the favourites for the points, but I’ve done so just in case.

        When you’re logged into the Iberia store, you can search for both merchants at the top of the main page. In the search results for both, you will see an option to favourite them.

        • Andrew H says:

          You can do it on the merchant listing too.

        • Rob says:

          You don’t need to add to favourites.

          I didn’t and I got confirmation emails today from IB that the transactions have tracked.

          Note that Amazon requires you to click on the confirmation email to activate your account.

  • Ed says:

    Another great opportunity for anyone needing to activate an Iberia account

    • Leo says:


    • TimS says:

      Everyone got them a few days ago.

      • Graeme says:

        Not everyone, sadly!

      • Stu R says:

        If you purchased them on the day this was publicised on HFP, it was 16th December – Mira tu Tarjeta Iberia Plus en 15 dias ya habrás recibido tus Avios!

        In others words, wait 15 days from then ….

        • harry says:

          In other words, I was right, you’ll get them tomorrow. There will be a couple same (15th) or better (Andrew) timing than myself, but most of you get them tomorrow or soon after lol

          • Leo says:

            No you weren’t “right” because this thread was not about the accor points in the first place but rather other free avios via Iberia. You imported the accor issue into this thread, when as TimS then said lots of us already had those points posted in any event.

            The “Mira tu Tarjeta Iberia Plus en 15 dias ya habrás recibido tus Avios!” relates to the Groupon offer. Those points possibly will post in the next day or 2. Please try and keep matters clear particularly for those who do not read the threads all the time and can get confused.

          • Stu R says:

            Unfortunately, the lack of a proper forum here means folks tend discuss anything and everything in the most active article of the day, relative or not.

            I did ask the question of Rob about whether forums had been considered but he cited the burden of policing the threads as one of the reasons for not doing so – perhaps you’d care to volunteer for the job? 😉

          • Rob says:

            … or indeed deal with the 700 emails a week I get (I got 29 HFP emails on Christmas Day for crying out loud!) or write the 21 articles a week I need to do ….!

            You can actually pay companies in Mumbai a couple of quid a day to moderate your forums for you (some frequent flyer forums do this) but I don’t think it is really ‘us’.

          • TimS says:

            I got mine days ago, along with numerous others on here. The points transferring across correctly had already been mentioned on at least 2 threads in recent days before this one.
