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!

    Painless as long as you remember to select “Spain – English” just remember to change the newsletter subscription from daily, done mine to weekly until the Avios track then ill be unsubscribing!

  • Liz says:

    Is it just me being dim but once I click on Shop Now and log in it is taking me to the shopping page. I am not getting asked to put in my name, email or fashion options anywhere. What am I missing?

    • Andrew H says:

      Try the solution I just posted

    • Liz says:

      I’ve got the 2nd one to work.

      • Liz says:

        Gee that was hard – I finally got through to the correct page but it wouldn’t accept my email and password – got there after about 20 attempts! Iberia make you work for your ‘free’ points!

        • Andrew H says:

          Whenever I log on to Iberia’s main page, it *never* accepts my login and password on the first attempt. Only the second. It’s something I have gotten used to.

          • JQ says:

            Which browser? Try a different one? Have you saved your password? I had this issue until I unsaved my password and then resaved it again.

          • Andrew H says:

            Chrome. Yes, just realised i had two different passwords saved, one of which was wrong. Fixed that, thanks!

  • Gavin says:

    Gives me something to do later when in No 1 lounge in Brum

  • blueskies says:

    Just wondering if anyone has received the Groupon Avios in their IB Plus account yet?

  • harry says:

    Degustabox 180 Avios

  • harry says:

    OK forget Degustabox

    But Atrapalo (no-frills flights) are worth a look.

    You get 2500 Avios (£25) for doing the deal.

    And the deals can be hot.

    An off peak fare Bristol – my European destination is a super-low EUR 17.36 =c.£14 or so, vs the Ryanair price (it IS Ryanair) £25.99.

    So effectively £11 profit for you.

    I think I’ll bear this one in mind for later use…

    • harry says:

      And I tested now a same date Wizz Air flight from Luton – my European destination & it’s just EUR3 vs £15.49.

      A £23 profit for you!

      Not sure how any extra costs stack up.

      Possibly the answer is these are unbranded flight carrier flights (called ‘Low Cost’) so presumably priced along the Secret Hotels model. However, it is extremely easy to identify the flight carrier.

      • harry says:

        Their mystery carrier (this time it’s EJ) is also 20% cheaper than EJ’s own prices on the same day, Gatwick to same destination.

        • harry says:

          Same pattern with Norwegian (LC Carrier) ex LGW to my destination – 20% cheaper on Atrapalo plus you get the incentive Avios.

          Amazing prices, actually 🙂

          • Andrew H says:

            If there’s anyone near Liverpool, a one way ticket from Liverpool to Derry costs 1 Euro. That’s with Ryanair. You have to come back, of course. That’s in February.

          • Andrew H says:

            Just noticed this in the Iberia terms and conditions for that store:

            “This reward is for categories Travel & Cruises and is independent of the amount of the purchase. The categories Restaurants, Cars and flights get less reward independent of the amount of the purchase.”

            So you don’t get 2500 Avios for booking a flight, you get less. Don’t know how much less, though.

          • harry says:

            But even without the bonus Avios, the prices are a steal – just like Secret Hotels but flights are so much easier to identify lol

          • harry says:

            Put it this way – for the ex-Europe flights, you need to get there 🙂 for your originating airport.

            Atrapalo seems to be – easily – the cheapest portal to UK cheapies, you might get a few Avios thrown in if you go through IB Store

    • Andrew H says:

      It’s limited to ‘Travel and Cruises’ – I wonder if that includes train travel. Could book a quick hop within Spain if it’s dead cheap. No need to use the ticket, and a free 2500 Avios.

      Anyone good with Spanish rail? 🙂

  • harry says:

    Those 4 RFS flights I booked for 16/12/16 @ £330 all in are now £600 lol

    Wife still can’t make her mind up when to fly 🙂

  • Worzel says:

    I was wondering whether or not Squills might shut up?

    • harry says:

      You know me Worzel lol

      Check out my Atrapalo find, it’s pure gold & Avios lol

      OK I’ll watch some TV or something 🙂
