Remember that post where I said that there’s one, and only on thing that people who hold British Airways Avios (or Amex Points) should do? Well, if you followed the rules you’ll be very happy today. How happy? Like 51,000 point, no surcharge round trip business class between the US and Europe, in either direction happy…

Iberia Is Having a 25% Off Redemptions Using Miles Sale…

25,500 Iberia Avios (created from Amex Points or British Airways Avios) is all you need to fly flat bed business class between Madrid and the US. The airline charges minimal surcharges, meaning you can bag a round trip for around $105 in taxes. Round trip is just double! This is a limited time promotion for travel up until June 15th or from October 1st to December 15th.

The Big Catch Here Is That You Must…

As I mentioned in this post a few months ago, you need a Iberia account open for 90 days before you can move British Airways Avios across, into Iberia Avios, otherwise any attempted 1:1 transfers will error out. You also needed to earn at least one point with Iberia to activate the account. If you have Amex points however, you’re all set. You can transfer from Amex to Iberia with no minimum account opening requirements and instantly book one of these gems!

And Here’s How To Book Your Incredible Trip…

Iberia offers direct service from Madrid to New York, Miami, Chicago and many more in this promotion. This would be a case where it’s absolutely worth using Madrid as a hop on or hop off city for trips elsewhere, not that Madrid isn’t worth a trip in itself! To book simply transfer your points from British Airways to Iberia or from Amex to Iberia, look for flights using miles during the window mentioned (up to June 15th or from October-December) and book. You NEED to book by April 11th to take advantage of the promotional rates. You’ll find BEST availability in November, though there are other sporadic dates to be had…
