Iberia is currently offering a 50% bonus when you buy 2,000+ Avios before 31st December. These will drop into an Iberia Plus account, but can be moved to British Airways via ‘Combine My Avios’.
Remember that you cannot use ‘Combine My Avios’ with Iberia if your Iberia account is under 90 days old.
Here are the prices. You MUST log in to see the bonus.
The maximum purchase is 200,000 Avios with a 100,000 Avios bonus for €3,601. This works out, in Sterling, at 1.06p per Avios. I am not a buyer at this level but your circumstances may be different. It doesn’t get a lot more expensive per point for smaller quantities.
The Groupon Spain deal is also still running – click here. Avios sells its points very cheaply via Groupon Spain as long as you credit them to Iberia Plus.
The Groupon deal is better value in most cases, although messier because you need to wait for Groupon to send your codes which you deposit into your account. Use ‘Translate’ in your browser to see how it works. Full details of the deal are here.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (December 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
