News in brief:

New Iberia Plus wine offer for 500 Avios

Iberia’s wine partner, Vinoseleccion, is running a new deal for UK residents.

For £50, you will receive six bottle of rioja plus free delivery plus 500 Avios in Iberia Plus.  These can be moved across to BAEC or avios.com using the ‘Combine My Avios’ functionality on any Avios website.

£50 is advertised as ‘half price’ but you should always treat these claims with caution where wine is concerned.  That said, Vinoseleccion seems to have a decent reputation overall.  Full details of the offer are here.

Miles & More launches new promo with Hertz

Miles & More, the Lufthansa Group frequent flyer scheme, has launched a new promotion with Hertz.

For bookings by 30th June, for rentals before 30th September, you will earn 1500 Miles & More miles per rental.  You will also be entered into a competition to win one of 20 prizes of 50,000 miles.

There is no minimum rental length so this could be good deal for one day hires.

Full details, including details of the codes which must be added to your booking (and which may or may not end up inflating the price of your rental) are here on hertz.com.

Don’t forget that Virgin Atlantic is also an excellent place to park miles from Hertz rentals see here for details – earning 1000 miles every time.  That is where I sent the miles from the Hertz rental I did last weekend.

  1. I am considering the Roija offer to activate my Iberia Plus account. Have also looked at transferring Amex MR instead and looks like the minimum allowed for transfer is 1,000 MR. Could anyone please advise what the approximate value of 1,000 MR is? Also, whether there is an alternative/cheaper way to get some activity in the Iberia Plus account?

    Thanks

      If you have any e-rewards points, transferring the required minimum number to Iberia will work. It’s a better exchange rate than BAEC or Avios anyway, so always worth sending them there.

    • It doesn’t ‘cost’ you anything, really, because you can move the points across to BA afterwards so you still get to use them!

      In terms of ‘best use of Amex points’, airline miles are as good as it gets. If you think you can get 1p or more per Avios then you won’t beat that with any hotel or gift card transfers.

        Not forgetting the re-appearance of the Groupon deal

        BP go to IB a/c —> Plustore —> Groupon —> & you’ll see you can buy quite small quantities of Avios (been there 1 minute gone the next) – 2000 points would do it

      • MR it is then! Thanks Rob, I didn’t think of it that way. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

      Just got an email from Iberia. They’re doing the same Deliveroo deal as BA.
