Almost messing up with promo Avios (& don’t forget to use yours!)

Iberia Groupon

Several months back, Iberia ran a really crazy promotion where you could score 9,000 Avios for every flight you booked – including cheap intra-European flights like Santander to Madrid. If you got in early and maximized through a portal, you could have effectively purchased as many as 90,000 Avios for about $150. Even if you got in late, you might have paid more like $300 — still a deal for 90K miles. The expiration on…

How to transfer Avios between Aer Lingus, BA, and Iberia

Aer Lingus, British Airways, and Iberia share a common rewards currency: Avios.  Strangely, despite sharing a currency, each program has its own loyalty program with different award charts and rules.  Since they are partners, it’s often possible to book the same flights with any one of these programs, but your cost will vary (both in number of points required and fuel surcharges).

Iberia is freezing some accounts. What does it mean? We’ll see.

Recently, Iberia ran what could turn out to be the promotion of the year if it gets honored (it’s now over, but you can read more about it here and here). We have received a handful of reports today from readers whose accounts have been closed/suspended and/or whose tickets have been cancelled. To be clear: this does not appear to be affecting everyone, but there have been enough reports of problems of some sort at this point…

Last night, we published a post about what I thought would be the absolute deal of the year if it were honored — though I was admittedly cautious in warning readers that it might not be honored as written beause it just seemed too generous. It turns out Iberia is going to honor this promotion. If you got in last night at $18 per flight, congrats — the holidays came early for you. If you did…
