Look up virtually any way to use miles for business class between the US and Europe and you’ll find a number over 50,000 points, and that’s just one way. With that in mind, it doesn’t take much convincing to figure out that 51,000 points for a round trip ticket in a great flat bed business class is pretty outstanding. For a limited time – there’s an easy way to do it using Amex, Chase, SPG Iberia or British Airways points. We’ll show you how…

The Points Needed

You can accomplish this by piecing together 51,000 points from any of the following sources. If you have points spread across the various options, you can combine them all to make this work. You can use British Airways Avios, Iberia Avios, American Express Membership Rewards Points or Chase Ultimate Rewards Points. You can do this, because each type of points can be transferred into Iberia points almost instantly.

The Plan

As reported by our friend UltimaIIamada, a top Spanish blog – Iberia is offering 25% off using your points for business and economy class tickets. With the 25% discount, round trip business class between Spain and Chicago or Boston is just 51,000 points and roughly $200 in surcharges. You can transfer British Airways, Chase or Amex Points into Iberia points instantly.

The Rules

These tickets must be booked by January 31st 2018. You can travel throughout between February 1st and May 15th, but the tickets must be booked by this date. Amex points, SPG Points and Chase points can instantly be transferred directly into Iberia. If you don’t have an Iberia account, you can create one here. To transfer points from British Airways into Iberia, you need to have earned at least one point with Iberia before you can link your accounts. Transfers from Amex or Chase would count towards this.

How To Book

Step one is getting 51,000 points pooled together into Iberia by transferring your credit card points, SPG points or British Airways Avios points into Iberia. If you already have Iberia points, even better. Once the 51,000 points are in place, simply head to the Iberia 25% off page. Look for business class availability to Boston or Chicago from Madrid on the Iberia, ExpertFlyer or British Airways websites. Madrid is a perfect city to start or end any European trip, with easy onward connections to Western Europe.
