Avios has extended the current 30% bonus when you buy points until 1st October. However, a new Groupon Spain deal offers better value if you can take the risk that the admin process will run smoothly.
For the 30% bonus, you need to visit ba.com via this page in order to buy.
This is a poor deal, given that we regularly see bonuses of 40% or 50% these days. The only positive aspect is that there is no minimum purchase. The bonus kicks in with the smallest 1,000 Avios transaction.
Over at Groupon Spain …..
The Avios are not a steal at these prices either, but you will in most cases find them cheaper than the offical BA offer.
Here are the prices:
- 1,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €19 (1.68p)
- 2,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €29 (1.28p)
- 4,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €59 (1.30p)
- 8,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €109 (1.20p)
- 15,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €199 (1.17p)
- 20,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €259 (1.15p)
- 34,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €429 (1.11p)
You will need an Iberia Plus account to redeem your Groupon voucher, and you can then use ‘Combine My Avios’ to move them across to British Airways Executive Club. Please remember that Iberia Plus accounts must be 90 days old before you can use ‘Combine My Avios’, so don’t open a new one specifically to take advantage of this deal.
Some people have had trouble getting their Avios recently due to IT issues with Groupon and Iberia. I can only hope that, in the four months since this offer last ran, they have sorted themselves out.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (January 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses.
