Transferring to British Airways

Looks like they ran out of Groupons for this?

Not the worst deal in the world, but unless you have a specific need, this offer seems to be tepid at more than a penny a piece. You can obviously gin up Avios points much cheaper with an Ink card.

BTW, I’ve bought groupons from several of their European sites (overall, Groupon in Europe seems to have better restaurant deals than Groupon in America these days) and it usually works best to make payment via paypal. Sign in to your paypal account first, and then buy the Groupon.

I tried to do this when they offered it in December. It was a total nightmare and I never got the Avios. In the end after months of dealing with Customer Service (en espanol), I couldn’t get the groupon to work and the avios to deposit. I had to initiate a chargeback with Paypal to get my money back. Many others on FlyerTalk had an equally frustrating experience. YMMV

Why does it cost more per Avion with the higher quantity? Why not by several (10x) 2,000 increments which cost about $82 less.

Hi, I bought 5 groupons in June and activation worked without issues. But instead of posting to my Iberia account, I got the money back on my credit card last week. Did you hear anything like this before?
