Yet again another Groupon sale has gone live. As always, you will be buying Avios for an Iberia Plus account
The price per Avios is the same as usual:
- 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 30 June, 2018). I need to add a YMMV here because I have been received strange amounts from the IberiaPluStore.
When you arrive to Groupon, you might see that everything is sold out. This is because the landing page hasn’t been updated. Simply set your city to Madrid and type Avios in the search bar; that should take you to the current offer.
So… if you buy a 2,000 Avios pack, you will also earn up to 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. (although my attempt to use Paypal this morning caused an error with Groupon so YMMV…)
Once you have managed to purchase a Groupon voucher, you will need to exchange it for your Avios.
The 2,000 Avios packages tend to sell very quickly. So you’d better get a move on if you want to take advantage…
