What’s the deal with Iberia Plus Avios?

If you take out a UK Print and Digital subscription to The Economist, you earn a whopping 12,000 Avios (the usual offer is 8,000 points, so this is 50% extra). This subscription costs £155 (US $236).

The snag is, with the Print and Digital subscription, you need a UK address for the Economist to be physically mailed to. You can, however, sign up with a billing address that’s not UK – you just need the physical copy to be mailed to a certain address in the UK.

So if you know someone in the UK who’d appreciate a weekly delivery of this news magazine, subscribe now to earn yourself 12,000 Avios in the process.

With the digital copy subscription, you earn 9,000 Avios, but you actually need to sign up with a UK billing address.

The current US offer is 8,000 Avios for a Print and Digital subscription, which costs $160 a year. This equates to a similar overall cost per Avios point as the UK subscription, just that you get 4,000 Avios less!

How do I get the Iberia Plus Avios deal?

Open up The Economist / Iberia Plus offer page and change the country to UK, if you want to order the UK subscription for 12,000 Avios for $236.

Alternatively, choose the US if you want to earn 8,000 Avios for $160.

What else do I need to know about the Iberia Plus Avios deal?

Some readers have noticed that once the points have posted, they are able to cancel the subscription to get a pro-rata refund, which makes this offer very lucrative! Ensure you read all the Terms & Conditions before you sign up, though, if you intend to do this, as they may vary between countries.

As we posted previously, when your active Iberia Plus account has been open for 90 days, you can transfer over British Airways Avios. Iberia doesn’t add significant fuel surcharges onto flight redemptions, so you can book the same flight for much less.
