[Expired] Iberia – Earn 9,000 Avios Be Flight Booked By Sunday – Up To 90,000 Avios (Avios Expire In December)

This bonus has expired, view more Iberia bonuses by clicking here.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Get an additional 9,000 Avios for every flight you book (Iberia, Iberia Express or Air Nostrum) through Iberia by June 24th (this Sunday). The points automatically expire on December 1st, 2018, but they will be used before any other points are used. There is a limit of 90,000 Avios per person

The Fine Print

  • Special offer of an extra 9,000 Avios for each ticket purchased between 21 and 24 June 2018 (maximum of 90,000 promotional Avios per member) on iberia.com for a flight operated by Iberia, Iberia Express or Air Nostrum.
  • The Avios will be added within 10 days of the purchase to the Iberia Plus account of all customers identified as members of the Iberia Plus programme during the purchase process.
  • If the customer requests a refund, either because it is permitted by the fare or for any other reason, the promotional Avios will be withdrawn from their account.
  • The extra promotional Avios not redeemed by 1 December 2018 will be withdrawn from the customer’s account. The redemption terms and conditions are subject to the general terms and conditions of the Iberia Plus programme.
  • For example, if a customer purchases tickets on Iberia.com for three people to fly from Seville to Madrid and two of the people are identified as Iberia Plus members during the purchase process, 9,000 Avios will be credited to both of these people within 10 days of the purchase. These two people must have redeemed at least 9,000 Avios by 1 December 2018, or this same amount of Avios will be withdrawn from their account.

Our Verdict

This deal is honestly quite insane if you’ve got any Europe travel planned, Iberia has a lot of low cost flights (e.g Frequent Miler found some from €19. I’ve also taken flights in the past that I actually needed to fly for under $50). I’m surprised there isn’t a minimum cash price required for this promotion. The cap of 90,000 points is also generous. The main downside is the fact that the points expire at the start of December, that doesn’t give you a lot of time to redeem them. I’d make sure you have a plan on what to do with the points if you go for this promotion. I think that this promotion will be so popular that it will actually be pulled before Sunday, so if you’re interested I’d book sooner rather than later.

There’s gonna be a mad rush for award seats..,.,

Yep. With such a limited redemption window good luck snagging an award seat for a flight you actually want

Exactly. That’s how Iberia intends to make money. These 90000 special Avios won’t be worth much when people realize they can’t get anything valuable out of them because availability is nil.

no more $20 seat……

I booked 10 $18 flights last night for February 2019. We shall see if the miles post. If they do, you can bet I’ll be using them ASAP to avoid the chance of them getting clawed back!

transfer to british airways avios if not completely used up?

Probably, I just wonder if they wont allow transfers with these points given their temporary nature

You can’t transfer the special Avios to BA, only your other Avios. Per Iberia rep (they say your account would go negative whatever that means).

SMH, I had booked like 8 flights last month. Win some you lose some.

Any suggest routes for $18 RT?
cannot find less than 45 euros

Try one way from Seville or Mallorca to Madrid. Lowest I saw was $34 yesterday.

Don’t forget to go through a portal! Mr. Rebates earns $3 back per order (not ticket) on Iberia, which sounds perfect for 10 individual orders.

Here is the merchant page for Iberia on Mr. Rebates:
https://www.mrrebates.com/merchant.asp?id=7082

And if you need to set up a Mr. Rebates account, I’d be thrilled if you used my referral link:

Having issues trying to create an Iberia Plus account. Document number from passport caused in issue and customer care stated “the server were having issues so just try later”. I wonder if 90k Avios is worth the hassle.

This is going to be a s$#@show in a couple months when it’s time to redeem before the deadline. I honestly don’t feel like this is worth the hassle or the cost.

Their website is down: At this moment, our online services are not available as result of the high number of accesses. Please try again in a few minutes. We apologize for the inconvenience, thank you very much.

Main website is down, do you think booking through the Iberia app will get the promo?

In addition to the Iberia site being down, Mr. Rebates’ Iberia $3 cashback is gone.

This turned out to be a nightmare for me. The last 3 / 10 tickets I booked said “Purchase request in progress” where I spent 1 hour on the phone with Iberia saying they didn’t go through. I used another card to pay for these 3… then I saw 9 Iberia charges even before I used a new card on these 3. Nothing wrong with my card, now I have to find which ones to dispute.

The Iberia plus account I opened is not active, so I don’t know if these will be honored or not. But let’s just say I’m down an extra $60. This all took 4 hours, and I won’t do it again… not worth the time.

After not thinking this was worth it, I changed my mind and booked 10 flights from Madrid to Santiago de Compostella in late December for $33.74 USD. I started to have some problems completing the transactions for the final 4 tickets but I used a combination of incognito, VPN, and different browser to get it done.

main plan is to use these for family trip(s) from NYC-YYZ on AA.

Will see how it goes in 10 days!

Spent 3 hrs fighting the computer this morning but got it done. Last 5 tickets site was running fine.

[DELETED MESSAGE because i’m an idiot and should’ve checked SPAM]

iberia started to lock account, a very strategic trick to avoid “honoring the promotion”
