Iberia Plus has launched a 40% conversion bonus for transaction coming from Marriott Rewards.
There is no mention that Travel Package (read more here) conversions wouldn’t be eligible for the bonus.
Here’s the Travel Package info:
So, if you convert 270,000 Marriott Rewards points for a week at category 1 – 5 hotels and combine it with 120,000 miles Iberia Plus component, this would become 168,000 Avios under this offer.
Remember that you can move British Airways Avios, Avios (UK shopping scheme) and Iberia Plus Avios between accounts.
Note that I don’t believe that straight Marriott Rewards points to miles conversions make any sense.
I have been toying with an idea to redeem something Iberia Plus related during their reward sales because fuel surcharges are rather reasonable, but haven’t done it yet.
If you have been thinking of moving Marriott Rewards points to Iberia Plus Avios (or British Airways one for that matter), this would be the best time to do it.
Seems that many of the airlines are trying to get Marriott Rewards members to convert to their program. There have been offers from both United Airlines and American Airlines recently. The AA one is still active.
