LoyaltyLobby reader from Spain forwarded me an email that he had received from Iberia Plus regarding 100% bonus on purchased Avios between October 7-14, 2013.
You can access more information about this on Iberia’s website here.
It seems that you cannot purchase Iberia Avios unless you have Iberia Plus affiliated credit card in Spain from one of the issuers.
Edit: Above is the Iberia Plus Avios pricing in Europe BEFORE the 100% bonus.
Note that I don’t have access to the Spanish pricing of buying Avios. If the base price is the same as with the BA in the US, you would need to pay $685 for 24,000 Avios that would be doubled to 48,000. That would be around 1.4 US cents per Avios.
Depending how you would use these purchased Avios, buying may or may not make sense. I would not buy at this price just because they are on sale. If you have, however, certain award redemption in mind and buying miles would make sense, it can be a good deal.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Only for Iberia Cards customers, from October 7th to October 13rd 2013, your points will grow to double as we will gift you the same number of Avios that you buy*.
To take advantage of this campaign you just have to link on your bank website (Iberia Cards, Banco Popular, Bankia o BBVA) and follow the steps showed to buy Avios.
*This promotion applies to all Consumer credit cards issued by Iberia Cards and commercialized by Iberia Cards, Banco Popular, BBVA and Bankia , excluding Business and Corporate cards, as well as those cards blocked, cancelled or in default situation. The promotional Avios will be credited when the promotional period finishes and these Avios will be available in your Iberia Plus account in approximately 48/72 hours.
