Iberia Plus and Groupon Are Back At It Again!

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

Groupon and Iberia Plus seem to be running the same deal every month. But I don’t think that any of my readers mind much…

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. (although this time I seemed to jump straight to the Avios offer)

If this is your first time using Groupon in Spain, you might be able to obtain a 25% discount by using the discount code: VIVEGRPN

So… if you buy a 2,000 Avios pack (without discount), you will also earn 209 Avios extra via the IberiaPluStore. 2,209 Avios for 19 euros (£16.50) works out to 0.75p 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. However, it is worth mentioning that the PDF you’ll receive from Groupon has an incorrect link (enlace) for converting your Groupon voucher into Avios. The link you really need is this one – https://ticket.groupon.es/ticket_es/iberia/

The 2,000 Avios packages tend to sell very quickly. So you’d better get a move on if you want to take advantage…

    I wonder if you can quadruple dip on your earnings with this ?

    1st dip : Iberia Avios from Groupon purchase
    2nd dip : Iberia Avios from ibplusstore
    3rd dip : Norwegian Cashpoints from linking your Groupon Spain and Norwegian accounts together and using the promo code NORWEGIAN at check out ?
    4th dip : Credit card points (in my case AMEX MR)

    I’m gonna try this later and we’ll see what happens 😀

    • Craig Sowerby says

      I’m not sure which Groupon country Norwegian is associated with, but it’s worth a shot.

      But otherwise you do indeed earn miles from 1, 2 and 4. Don’t wait too long though because the 2,000 Avios package can easily sell out in a matter of hours.

      • hamiltus says

        Found that if you go to the Spanish Norwegian Reward site it’ll link itself to the Spanish Groupon even if you’re already linked to the UK version. Yep just purchased and no apparent errors in that the NORWEGIAN promo code was accepted.

        Though Groupon’s voucher redemption site isn’t letting me redeem the voucher and erroring out? Trying to find the support chat but no luck

  2. TripleB says

    thanks for this …. the ~2200 miles for ~17 quid is great value when put towards a 4000 one way to europe reward with fixed extra fees

  3. denvar says

    Been a few hours since I’ve purchased it but I’m still getting “Este cupón ya ha sido usado” error on the Groupon tickets page 🙁

    • Craig Sowerby says

      I’ve always cut and pasted. Both my codes and the bulk of the article. 😉

      Sometimes it is tricky to precisely copy the codes so you might have to do it manually.

  4. TripleB says

    The 25% coupon worked well too (my wife had not previously bought any – so I bought her an 8000 pack which was pretty good value after the discount).
    The incorrect link aside – groupon are getting a bit better. I got an email today touting the offer (albeit after I had already bought) – presumably on the back of my past interest. After redeeming the coupons I got emails telling me the coupons had been successfully redeemed.
    Here’s hoping it comes back in another 6 to 8 weeks.

  5. Winnie says

    So which pack is the best value then? I only have the BA Avios account is it hard to convert? Thanks!

      • Winnie says

        Thank you! Another question, apparently when I log on to my BA Avios account, my account said it’s due to expire in June 18, even though I just transferred like 30k Avios points into the account back in jan and is due to fly with BA this month to hk. Does it seriously expire? My virgin / Air France (blue) seems to have no such problem as long as I fly with them / buy or spend points within 3 years. Thanks in advance!

        • Craig Sowerby says

          Transfer points from where? Some movements don’t seem to reset the activity clock (you must earn or spend Avios within a 3-year period). Combine Your Avios definitely doesn’t count, but if you have an upcoming paid flight on BA then you should be fine.

          • Winnie says

            Oh I see. I exchanged 30,000 reward points from my amex reward points to my BA Avios this jan – Feb.

  6. Kevin says

    Hello – i just purchased 8000 avios on a Groupon voucher using your very helpful guide, for the first time
    However when i try the link on the voucher (or the link you give above) to convert the voucher into points.
    I get this response (translated)
    ‘Due to maintenance work, the exchange platform for coupons is not available. If you have not yet redeemed your coupon, so that it is easier for you and you do not have to take any additional steps, we have sent you your ticket by email to the same email address with which you made the purchase, please search in your inbox the email received from the address [email protected].
    If you have problems locating it, you can contact customer service through http://www.groupon.es/ayuda.’

    In the email – The ‘ticket’ they refer to is the voucher and still needs to be redeemed – but I cannot find a way of redeeming it.
    Is this a common issue? Is there anything else i should/can do?
    I have until 10 July to redeem.

    Thank you
