Via Flyertalk, Groupon.es is offering Avios for as little as 1.04 cents each.

The Groupon offer (found here) shows the following options:

  • 2000 Avios – 19 € (65%)
  • 4000 Avios – 49 € (46% off)
  • 8000 Avios – € 99 (40% off)
  • 12000 Avios – € 149 (37% off)

Translated to US Dollars, we get:

  • 2000 Avios – $20.76 (1.04 cents per point)
  • 4000 Avios – $53.54 (1.3 cents per point)
  • 8000 Avios – $108.16 (1.4 cents per point)
  • 12000 Avios – $162.81 (1.4 cents per point)

Clearly the 2000 Avios offer is the best deal, but the terms limit buyers to one 2000 Avios purchase and no more than 5 vouchers altogether.

2,000 Avios isn’t enough to go anywhere, but times 16 it could be which is why I feel so bad the link to the Iberia Plus Shopping Portal to Groupon isn’t working for me.

Hard to get excited about this when it’s so hard to book once, let alone scale it.

Bummer, I am getting the same response. Seems to be in Spanish, so maybe a location issue?

Success!

This is what I did:
0. Created a Groupon account with Spanish address. Not sure this is necessary, but thought it wouldn’t hurt.
1. When signing into Iberia, make sure you are on España site (it will show in top left corner. ) If not click there and make adjustment.
2. Sign into your Iberia Plus account.
3. Click on Iberia Plus tab, then IberiaPluStore, and again (only option) IberiaPluStore
4. Click on “Go to IberiaPluStore,” which will open new tab with store.
5. Scroll down slightly and you’ll see Groupon as first one listed in “Most Popular.”
6. Click on Groupon logo, and then > Shop Now > Continue
7. On Groupon site, click on “Viajes” tab
8. Scroll down a bit and you’ll see Iberia offer > click
9. Payed with Paypal. I tried using a Visa then a Mastercard cc but both didn’t work. (I’m guessing because the Spanish address is not my billing address, and it’s not possible to but in a non-Spanish address in your account info.)

* I’m guessing you can also sign in more quickly and directly to store, here: https://ibplustore.iberia.com/en/

** I used Iberia.com site in Spanish, but can’t imagine why it wouldn’t work if you have language set to English.

I was able to access the offer but it didn’t like any of the 2 US-based CCs that I used.

No dice for me. Groupon.es won’t let you edit your address to a country other than ES. Pretty sure address needs to match for CC to work.

edit…I used the paypal route. With the exchange rate on the 4k(x5) offer they worked out to be 1.37 cents per avio. I also used the iberia plus poratl to get 16 avios/euro. so should net out at 1.14 cents per.
