Yesterday, I wrote about the latest iteration of the Groupon offer in Spain. Regular readers have probably taken advantage of this deal several times over the last couple of years.
My regular advice has long been to visit the IberiaPluStore to earn whatever bonus miles are available from Groupon. At the moment, the offer there is 11 Avios per euro spent.
However, a new method has surfaced, thanks to my good friend Hernan at Ultima Llamada and one of his very well-informed readers. This method allows you to earn a whopping 22 Avios per euro spent! (possibly just for the duration of the “double Avios” weekend, but potentially until 31 March, 2018)
The culprit is Avios.com. As you may be aware, IAG is setting up Avios.com to be a common platform for the entire company. Because Vueling has recently been moved over to the Avios.com platform – read here for details – it is now operational in Spain.
Here’s how you can access it from the UK… Visit https://www.avios.com/es/es. You should end up on a page that looks like this:
Click on “INICIAR SESION” on top right hand side to log-in.
You will probably be taken to your home page for the United Kingdom. But that’s OK because you are now logged in…
Then you can click on this link – https://shopping.avios.com/en/entertainment-and-leisure/groupon-es? – with some luck you should jump straight to this page (and in a mixture of English and Spanish to boot)
From there you set your city to Madrid and search for Avios as usual.
This is obviously slightly more complex than usual, but it certainly might be worth it when an extra 11 Avios per euro are on offer… Buena suerte dear readers…
