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 “catch” was that you had to use your promotional Avios by December…

To London on a whim

Being a career blogger has its perks.  One of my favorite perks is the ability to do my job anywhere.  This gives me the ability to tag along when my wife travels for work, which she often does.  Having oodles of miles at my disposal obviously helps a lot too. This time, I wasn’t planning to join my wife on her business trip to London.  We had just been to London last month and I…
