Aer Lingus, an airline owned by the IAG – the parent of British Airways and Iberia, has launched an award flash sale for AerClub members.
AerClub awards on Air Lingus are fully dynamic, and the number of Avios required for awards is discounted by 50% but only for bookings made October 14 – 16, 2022.
You can access this offer on the Aer Lingus website here.
Example by Air Lingus:
For example, a €29.99 fare usually costs 4,725 Avios. However, during this flash sale, you can book that flight for just 2,363 Avios*.
This implies that the value of each Avios is 0.63 cents (fraction of a cent) when used towards Aer Lingus flights. Therefore, the value is 1.26 euro cents each during the promotional period.
Getting excited about programs with dynamic earning and redeeming miles is difficult. In essence, they are merely a boring cashback program at that point.
If you have Avios on AerClub that you have been planning to use for Aer Lingus flights, now would be the right time to burn them.
Here are the terms and conditions of this award sale:
Options for any eligible flight will be shown automatically when you are logged in and have sufficient Avios in your AerClub account. Your discount options will depend on your Avios balance and the total cost of your journey. The 50% discount is only valid on bookings made between the 14 and 16 October 2022 on aerlingus.com and on the Aer Lingus app. The 50% off discount will be applied directly on the portion of the flight paid with Avios, either partial or full redemption. Additional services acquired during the booking process are excluded and will have to be paid with your credit or debit card. Promotion is not valid in conjunction with other promotions. The price of your flight will adjust automatically based on your chosen discount and will include the 50% off the Avios amount. Standard Pay with Avios terms and conditions apply, please click here to view.
*Avios prices are rounded to the nearest 25 Avios. The Avios discount option offered to you will depend on your Avios balance and the total price of the basket that the discount applies to.
