Iberia Avios Promotion Cashback Portal
Yesterday Danny covered Iberia’s amazing Avios bonus promotion. I had actually heard about it discretely from a friend on Thursday evening, but figured there would be no way the airline would honor it. At that time flights were as low as $18, but I hesitated and focused on other things.
Then, yesterday the airline actually confirmed the promotion will work as planned. As a reminder here is how it works:
- Book a flight on Iberia.com using your Iberia Plus number and you will receive 9,000 Avios
- These Avios expire on December 1, 2018 but can be used for travel beyond that date
- You can book up to 10 flights per Iberia account for a total of 90,000 Avios
- You don’t have to actually fly on the ticket to get the bonus Avios
You can find the promo and terms linked directly from their homepage.
Getting the Best Deal
Update: It looks like Mr. Rebates has removed Iberia from their list of partners. The Iberia website has also been having issues on and off all morning. You may be able to reach Iberia by searching first on Google Flights and then clicking through.
Obviously the best way to get these Avios at the lowest possible price is to book a cheap one-way. Yesterday I was able to find some routes as low as $28 USD each-way. It wasn’t as good as the $18 per way from the night before, but I was able to make it a bit better anyway.
Enter Mr. Rebates. Cashback portal Mr. Rebates is offering $3 per order on Iberia. To maximize this, I placed 20 separate bookings (10 for my wife and 10 for me) by clicking through the portal each time. This morning I received 20 confirmation emails showing $3 pending cashback for each order.
While the available fares are only going to go up as this promotion heads towards its expiration tomorrow, you still should be able to get a bit more back via Mr. Rebates.
I’m not quite sure why it took me so long to get excited about this deal, but 90,000 Avios for $250 after cashback is about as amazing a deal as you will find. I’m a little mad I didn’t book when flights were cheaper, but oh well. If you are thinking about doing this deal then I recommend jumping on it sooner rather than later since cheap fares are surely disappearing as we speak.
