A quick heads up that the Groupon Ireland deal for buying discounted Avios is still running. This is identical to the regular deals run by Groupon in Spain, but with the advantage that the entire buying process (and, if you have issues, follow-up process) is in English and not Spanish.
The Avios are not a steal at these prices. There is no longer a ‘super cheap’ teaser package and the prices for the other packages are higher than they were a year ago.
On the upside, Sterling is currently stronger against the Euro than it has been for a while. More importantly, if you have any issues redeeming your Groupon voucher, it will be easier to deal with AerClub and Groupon Ireland than Iberia Plus and Groupon Spain.
This is the deal:
- 2,000 Avios for €29 (1.25p)
- 4,000 Avios for €59 (1.27p)
- 8,000 Avios for €109 (1.17p)
- 15,000 Avios for €199 (1.14p)
- 20,000 Avios for €259 (1.11p)
- 35,000 Avios for €429 (1.05p)
You will need an Aer Lingus AerClub account to redeem your Groupon voucher, which you can open here. You can then use ‘Combine My Avios’ via avios.com (your AerClub account details work at avios.com) to move them across to British Airways Executive Club.
