  1. I can’t seem to transfer my 45000 Avios to Avios from Iberia ????any advice and help please?
    There seems to be issue with Combine my Avios after l spoke to Avios team. Anybody else having issues?

    • Brian W says:

      They have switched CMA off for Iberia due to the terms of this promo. Doubt you’ll get them out of IB. Maybe doing it over the phone might work but I doubt that also. Avios > BAEC still works fine for me but in and out of IB blocked.

  2. @Rob – didn’t your first article advise that we would be able to transfer out to BAEC? And that any negative balance would sit on Iberia?

    Now it seems we cannot even transfer out?

    • I have an email from Iberia which discusses that but clearly it is not contractually binding.

      • well great as that is…if one can’t use the redemption, one has lost money based on your advice. Should have flagged the risks up on this more

        • the real harry1 says:

          matt – were you running a points balance in IB, ie before the promo points dropped in?

        • CountryKerry says:

          Why can’t you redeem via IB?

  3. Mr Philip Evans says:

    Just seen the 90000 AVIOS in Iberia account. Went to combine with BA and this came up:
    Combine my Avios was unsuccessful
    Combine My Avios is currently unavailable
    I have broken down my family account in BA as instructed and I’ve had an Iberia account for ages. I’ve combined AVIOS before without issue.
    The phone number given for Iberia does not work
    Can anyone assist in pointing me in the right way to combine the points?

    • ditto here. seems like we won’t be able to do it:( If I had known this I would never have done it.

      • KevMc says:

        What exactly are you wanting to redeem them for with BA that you can’t do with Iberia?

    • the real harry1 says:

      see today’s IB thread

      • @therealharry1 thanks. yes I was. And I know there is reverse way to pull this in small segments. But the fact it, they clearly don’t want you to do this and so it will be clawed back ultimately. Otherwise why block it in the first place which was different to the advice given.

        • the real harry1 says:

          They’ve just said you will get a negative IB balance, no more. You can then close the IB a/c – so there’s nothing left to amalgamate with BAEC when the Avios platforms all join up.

    A huge thank you Rob and to the rest of you for your comments and practical explanations. I’m now sitting on 180000 Avios between me and my girlfriend which I’ll use for once in a lifetime business class flights to Lima (£360 total plus the £400 invested originally), and my kids have a further 150000 which they’ll use for a gap year next year. I do have to provide passport copies for those new accounts but that’s only fair. My only disappointment is I didn’t get more family members to enroll!
    An unbelievable promotion which I wouldn’t have taken advantage of without your rational analysis 🙂

  5. Nobil says:

    Still can’t sign into my account shows error with membership number or pin which our both correct checked multiple times new sign up to Iberia for this promo before purchasing my flights all 10 of them ? Any advice I have dropped them a email yesterday with my details and flight numbers ???

    • the real harry1 says:

      yep it’s ‘an’ email

      we make it ‘an’ before words beginning with a vowel

    • David says:

      Hi Nobil. It seems like many (all?) accounts opened during the promotion are being requested to supply a copy of the relevant passport/identity document. If you try to reset your pin you’ll probably get the message that the account is locked and it will redirect you to download a form with further details which needs to be submitted to Customer Service.

      I don’t think it’s anything to worry about but best get this done soon as I’m sure many more people will be needing this service (including me!)
