Want to Buy 2,247 Avios Cheaply? The Iberia Plus / Groupon Offer is Back!

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

We’ve seen this offer before… and love it!! You’re going to need some Spanish language skills though – or a web browser that can translate for you. But you should be able to purchase some Avios at a decent price. The offer comes from the Spanish version of Groupon and the Avios are sent to an Iberia Plus account.

It is easy enough to sign up for a Spanish Groupon account – if not resident in Spain just choose your favourite hotel and use their address.

The price per Avios jumps around a bit:

  • 2,000 Avios for 19 euros (0.95 euro cents apiece)
  • 4,000 Avios for 59 euros (1.48 euro cents apiece)
  • 8,000 Avios for 99 euros (1.24 euro cents apiece)
  • 15,000 Avios for 189 euros (1.26 euro cents apiece)
  • 20,000 Avios for 249 euros (1.25 euro cents apiece)
  • 34,000 Avios for 429 euros (1.26 euro cents apiece)

You are allowed to buy 1 of the 2,000 Avios packs, 3 of the 34,000 Avios packs and 5 of the other packs. In theory, you could buy up to 200,000 Avios in total.

Here is the direct link for the Groupon offer, although you don’t want to use it…

You want to go to the Iberia website and set your country settings to Spain in the top left-hand corner. Then you want to visit the IberiaPluStore. (which works exactly like your usual cashback or airline shopping portals) There you will find Groupon as one of the options, offering 13 Avios per euro spent (at the time of writing). Once in Groupon, you need to set your city to Madrid and search for Avios. Confusing? Perhaps this isn’t a travel hack for your grandmother… but it’s still free extra Avios…

So… if you buy a 2,000 Avios pack, you will also earn 247 Avios extra via the IberiaPluStore. 2,247 Avios for 19 euros (£17.25) works out to 0.77p per Avios.

Paying with PayPal should also help avoid any issues with the registered address on your credit card.

The pound:euro exchange rate seems to be getting worse and worse. Nonetheless, the 2,000 Avios pack is still cheap enough to give it a go…

    Has getting the Avios through IberiaPluStore worked. The terms and conditions seem to exclude purchase of avios via groupon:
    We do not offer the 2,000 , 4,000 , 8,000 , 12,000 or 20,000 Avios that you might buy through any “Avios en Iberia Plus” promotions.
    We do not accept missing transaction claims or questions about the 2,000 , 4,000 , 8,000 , 12,000 or 20,000 Avios that you might buy through “Avios en Iberia Plus” promotions.

      I’ve been doing this for two or three years now and have never failed to get the bonus Avios via IberiaPluStore.

        Same here… although when I bought in June I received an email from Iberia confirming my portal transaction, but have yet to see my Avios.

        Will have to investigate what Dom says.

        • Andrew H says

          I purchased a 2000 package on 5th June, got the 2000 into my account on 4th July and got the bonus 190 avios on 19th July.

    • Craig Sowerby says

      Since I understand the original Spanish as well, I interpret this as Iberia Plus (and/or the IberiaPluStore) being fed up with people trying to chase their missing Avios, when they must contact Groupon to do so.

      It really doesn’t appear to me at all to be excluding purchases of Avios from earning the 13 euros per euro – there are dozens of ways of stating that more clearly.

    As anyone tried buying 2,000 Avios for 19 euros on multiple Email accounts to the same Iberia account? And did it work?

    • RKP says

      Even I want to know the same. At the redemption site, they ask to enter email address used to buy coupon and then iberia plus a/c. Wondering, if Iberia/Groupon system verify avios credit requests coming from different email ids into one avios account?

  3. Wilco says

    I get the following error message when I want to register my groupon code:

    Tu non puoi ancora sottomettere i tuoi codici coupon!

  4. RKP says

    I missed the link thru iberiaplustore. 🙁 before I bought the €19 coupon from groupon. Well. Is it possible to buy more coupons using other email ids and redeem them into one Iberia plus account? I am bit struggling to build up 150k avios for lon-tok-lon out on prem eco and in on bus. I have 120k avios at the moment.
