Groupon and Iberia Plus seem to be running the same deal with increasing frequency. But we don’t mind at all with prices so low for Avios…
As always, you’re going to need some Spanish language skills though – or a web browser that can translate for you. 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, and 5 of the 4, 20 and 34K packs and 10 of the 8K / 15K packs. (way too complicated for me but if you need loads of Avios you can obviously get them…)
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 11 Avios per euro spent (until 31 March, 2018). Once in Groupon, you need to set your city to Madrid and search for Avios.
To obtain an additional 20% discount, you can try to take advantage of these discount codes (HT to Roberto via Ultima Llamada)
If this is your first time using Groupon in Spain, you can obtain a 25% discount by using the discount code: VIVEGRPN
The codes didn’t work for me, though, so YMMV…
So, under the assumption that the codes don’t work for you either… if you buy a 2,000 Avios pack, you will also earn 209 Avios extra via the IberiaPluStore. 2,209 Avios for 19 euros (£17) works out to 0.77p per Avios.
Paying with PayPal should also help avoid any issues with the registered address on your credit card.
Once you have managed to purchase a Groupon voucher, you will need to exchange it for your Avios. I explained how to do it in this post, which you can read by clicking here.
The 2,000 Avios packages tend to sell very quickly. So you’d better get a move on if you want to take advantage…
