[5/24 Does Not Apply] Brand New Chase Iberia Credit Card: 75,000 Points Signup Bonus, $1,000 Yearly Voucher, $95 Annual Fee

Update 2: Full review now available here.

Update:  Data points indicate that you can get this card even if you are past 5/24.

Chase released today a new cobranded credit card with Iberia.

Direct Link to offer

  • $95 annual fee, not waived the first year
  • Signup bonus: 50,000 Avios after $3,000 in spend within 3 months, plus 25,000 Avios after $10,000 in spend within the first year
  • $1,000 discount voucher each calendar year you spend $30,000. Note, there are limitations on this voucher: “The discount voucher will be in the form of a code that can be applied by a Cardmember for a discount of $1,000 when purchasing two tickets, for the same flights in the same class of travel.”
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • 10% off Iberia flights when paying with the Iberia credit card
  • 3x Avios on Iberia purchases, 1x everywhere else
  • Card is Visa Signature

Hopefully Will will write a full review later. Million-dollar-question: will 5/24 apply to this card? It doesn’t apply to the Chase British Airways card. We’ll see… Let us know if you have a data point.

Is this a dream? I’ve been dreaming about an Iberia credit card. I just wish this was with anyone but Chase 5/24. Iberia has cheap Business Class from the USA.
Well I’ll have another 10 months to go to get under Chase 5/24 as long as I don’t apply for anything else.

10 months is a long time to wait and a lot of money left on the table to get under 5/24.

Looks like 5/24 doesn’t apply, per reddit. Or they just haven’t implemented it yet as it’s a new card (like the leaked CSR link in 2016). I’d still be hesitant to apply if Chase will shut you down for applying for this card with too many recent cards from other banks.

Yesterday Chase closed both my Hyatt Visa and IHG MasterCard after “a periodic review,” for too many recent inquiries (all at other issuers).

Smiled/winced in seeing this news. Remember how really convoluted and hard it was for years (for US residents) to transfer British Airways miles to Iberia Avios — (e.g., all the fruitless ways to get “activity” on your Iberia account to permit transfers) Mercifully became easier late last year. (once Iberia accounts permitted buying of points for US residents — to count as activity.) Now all that’s “history.”

More relevant now, I’m remembering too all the wild, yet fun posts showing us how to use Iberia’s version of Avios for short-haul American airways flights…. (which is why we wanted to do the BA/Iberia transfers in the first place — after the BA version of this once much loved travel hack was much diminished)

When Will gets to writing about this new card deal, might be extra useful to update what’s still possible with Iberia Avio points (here in NA). (or find us links to someone who has kept up)

yeah i totally agree. i gave up on using iberia avios, but it may have gotten easier to use and transfer… e.g. recent JFK to MAD business class avios deals i missed out on b/c i couldnt be bothered to relearn how IB avios work.

When you see Iberia and Chase card in the same sentence you just don’t figure it is. I was happy to hear it’s a real thing! Woot. Let’s party.

They want you to stay under chase 5/24 but then they keep on coming out with all these new shiny credit cards with huge bonuses!

Well if you only apply to Chase cards, you will be under 5/24 fast. I’m pretty sure Chase would love that.

Had to talk myself out of this one, just opened up Amex Platinum, SPG Biz, & Citi Premier in the past month. Using the BA card as a guide, this bonus won’t be going anywhere soon… right?

if i got closed down from chase on all my credit cards and check account 3 weeks ago would you reccomend reapplying for a new credit card today? i am tempted to sign up for this new iberia card. or do you think they would increase the offer to 100k avios like the ba card sometime soon ?
