British Airways and Iberia have teamed up with Vente Privee to offload Avios for consumers wishing to purchase some.

Vente Privee Buy Avios

Avios has launched six separate packages from 2,000 to 35,000 Avios that you can purchase (max amount is 100,000 Avios).

You can access Vente Privee here.

Here are the Avios available for purchase:

Vente Privee Buy Avios Price U

  • 2,000 Avios for 21 € instead of 54 € = Price per Avios 1.1 euro cents each
  • 4,000 Avios for 45 € instead of 91 € = Price per Avios 1.1 euro cents each
  • 8,000 Avios for 99 € instead of 164 € = Price per Avios 1.2 euro cents each

  • 35,000 Avios for 399 € instead of 665 € = Price per Avios 1.1 euro cents each

Note that you must register for Vente Privee’s French website to access this offer (wasn’t available on the English one). You can purchase and deposit to either British Airways or Iberia. The maximum allowed purchase is up to 100,000 Avios for each program.

Conclusion

Iberia has sold Avios previously using Groupon. Some readers had issues getting their Avios credited properly after those sales that were done on these third party sites but backed by Avios/Iberia/British Airways. This is the cheapest way you can purchase Avios.

Here are the terms and conditions (Google translate from French):

For the Products offered during the Operation, the Member has the right to withdraw for a period of up to fourteen (14) days from the date of the availability of his reservation title under the heading “My Orders” Of his account on the Site vente-privee, in accordance with the provisions of article L221-18 of the Consumer Code.

The Member may thus, within fourteen (14) days of making his booking title available, exercise his right of withdrawal in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in Article 8.2 of the Terms and Conditions of Sale.

However, it is expressly stated that the Member waives the exercise of his right of withdrawal and the reimbursement of his order if he activates, during the period of fourteen (14) clear days.

    I’m a bit surprised by the price grid.
    for the original BA price, the more you buy, the less the unit price (54 vs 91/2 )
    with this grid it’s not so, 2000 costs less than 4000 divided by 2 21 vs 45/2

    • That has always been the case with these sales via Grouprons. I guess that they want people to buy number of Avios they cannot use and then just forget (let them expire).

  • Nikola

    I’m trying to put those in the basket but nothing appears in the basket?

    • Keitchai

      you need to close browser and then login again

      • Nikola

        after i log out i am unable to log in anymore 🙁

        • Keitchai

          try again one more time on a day after, I can login and add into basket.
          Purchased and Retrieved code already, nothing credit into my BA account yet.

            Hello Keichai,

            How are you able to by passing the address? i try to change from France to US but there is no option to input US address? thanks in advance?

          • Nikola

            Thanks man, i have already received them.

  • JK

    HI John, they dont allow a billing address in the states. Does that mean only french residence can purchase this?

    • Didn’t try to purchase by myself because have 400K Avios sitting on my BA account right now. Sometimes you can just use your own address and leave the country as it is by default on the website. Transaction may or may not go through, however.

  • Malcolm

    Cannot access french website. I want to buy 100K of avios. But no access via the english website? I will wait a couple of days and let them sort it out before I try again.

    • Keitchai

      I think you can, open browser on you PC or Laptop. There is bottom right that you can change country.

    How do you buy multiple voucher I want to 2000 avios but it limited as 3??? how do your guys buy up to 21 or 54???? thank you!

    • Keitchai

      you can buy 3 voucher at a time. maybe they limited 3 vouchers per day.

    • When they had these sales on Groupon, you were limited to max 3 of each of the certs and this sale has 100K max Avios total.

  • babyblue

    Did not see any place to enter my BA membership number.

    • babyblue

      I understand, that is like a check to deposit.

    • You get a voucher number after you have made the purchase and can then deposit that to your BA or Iberia account (you need to choose first which one you prefer).

  • Danny

    Was anyone able to make a purchase? Looks like you are restricted to using an address in France.

    • Rim

      Yes. Any address will work. French post code – 5 digits.. French tel number – 10 digits starting with 0.. I paid with Amex card..

      • Danny

        Thanks Rim. I was able to get it to process using your tips. Your right by using AMEX as it bypassed the address verification process. How many did it take for the miles to show in your account? Cheers!
