One of our favourite offers is back! Just in time for Black Friday.
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, 5 of the 34,000 Avios packs and 10 of the 8,000 or 15,000 packs. That’s far too much math for me in order to calculate the maximum, but I suspect you could buy over 300,000 Avios if you wanted to.
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 9 Avios per euro spent (until 30 November, 2017). 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 171 Avios extra via the IberiaPluStore. 2,171 Avios for 19 euros (£17) works out to 0.78p per Avios.
Paying with PayPal should also help avoid any issues with the registered address on your credit card.
The 2,000 Avios packages tend to sell very quickly. So you’d better get a move on if you want to take advantage…
