What’s the deal with the Avios bonus?
Iberia Plus members can currently get a 50% Avios bonus when you buy points by July 6th, 2016. This promo isn’t tiered as usual, so you get 50% extra no matter how many you buy! So for example:
- Buy 2,000 Avios to receive an additional 1,000 Avios, making it 3,000 total
- Buy 100,000 Avios to receive an additional 50,000 Avios, making it 150,000 total
With this promo (and each calendar year) you can purchase up to 100,000 Avios. If you buy the maximum 100,000 points at 1,800 euros, that’s a purchase price of 1.3 US cents each. However, if you’re buying with a non-euro card, you may also need to factor in a foreign exchange fee.
How do I get the Avios bonus deal?
Iberia Plus members log in to your account here to see the bonus offer and buy your points through July 6th, 2016.
Is it worth it to buy points to get the Avios bonus with this deal?
Just last month, you could get a 40% bonus when purchasing Avios points with Iberia Plus, so this is only a little better. You can buy Iberia Plus Avios at a better price than British Airways Avios with the new 50% bonus offer, but remember that you need an active Iberia account which is at least 90 days old if you want to transfer points from BA.
It’s quite often the case that it’s only really worth buying points when they are needed, rather than buying speculatively, as with this offer.
