Iberia accounts going negative and what we can take away from the promo

This past summer, Iberia ran what will unquestionably be known as the promo of the year: they offered 9,000 Avios per booking if you booked any Iberia flight (even cheap flights that were less than $20 each). This only lasted a few days, but you could have racked up 90K Avios for $200-$300 (or less if you got in early and went through a portal).

The US Bank Radisson Rewards Premier Visa Signature card is now offering an increased welcome offer of up to 100,000 Radisson Rewards points — that’s 50K after first purchase and another 50K after making $2,500 in purchases in the first 3 months.
