It’s officially real, and it’s officially incredible…

We’re not going to lie, this post was never going to be written, until about 2PM today. Yesterday a promotion surfaced offering 9,000 Avios Points for a single Iberia booking, in addition to any points for actually flying. There were hardly any restrictions, and reports seemed to suggest that you didn’t even have to fly! Just saying that, is sounds too good to be true, and alas, we were sure another shoe would drop and the promotion would come up short. That is, until Iberia got in touch to confirm that the promotion is 100% real, and just as good as it sounds…

Iberia is offering 9,000 Avios for every single booking, and unlike most flights, they’re awarding the points within 10 days of purchase – whether you actually fly or not. You must have an Iberia Plus account to take advantage, and if you don’t already have one, you can make one instantly too. The only catch? You must book by June 24th. Any bookings, even short haul regional Iberia flights which start at just €18 one way count. yes – you could theoretically max out this promotion and receive 90,000 Avios for just €180. That’s gotta be the best deal ever. And yes, you really don’t even have to take the flights, you just can’t cancel or receive a refund. And of course – if you DO fly, you’ll get extra points too! This is bonkers. Simply book from this offer page. ONLY this offer page.

You must simply book these tickets by the 24th of June 2018, not fly. That means you could book speculative tickets you hope to be able to take advantage of later in the year, or next year. We recommend using these brilliant Google Flights tricks to find the lowest Iberia prices. You’ll still receive your (up to) 90,000 Avios within 10 days. These are Iberia Avios, which in theory can be easily transferred into British Airways Avios. The only other catch, is that these magic Iberia Avios MUST be spent by December 1st, 2018. Spent, not flown. All you need to do is find an awesome flight using points and get it booked before December 1st. You could fly across a variety of dates in 2019 as well.

Scoring up to 90,000 Avios for booking flights is nothing short of incredible. It may truly be the best Avios promotion ever offered. 90,000 points can go a long way. And since you’re getting Avios within 10 days of the 24th of June, you’re primed to book fantastic getaways in business class or a whole lot of getaways in economy. This offer will be gone before you know it, so get those Iberia bookings in place, and if you can – pick ones you may be able to actually use. Either way, 9,000 points per booking are coming your way shortly. The lowest the flight price the better.

  1. I booked yesterday 6 of the $19 fares just to see what happen and alright to take the loss if it didn’t go through. Trying to find 4 more airfares today to finish out the promotion. Are you seeing any more fares of similar price?

  2. Could you please clarify this:

    “Simply book from this offer page. ONLY this offer page.”

    Terms & conditions says this:

    “Special offer of an extra 9,000 Avios for each ticket purchased between 21 and 24 June 2018 (maximum of 90,000 promotional Avios per member) on iberia.com for a flight operated by Iberia, Iberia Express or Air Nostrum.”

    Reason why I’m curious is when I booked my 10 flights yesterday I used iberia.com for most of them.


    1. They may not count if you did not book them through the promotion page. If you are worried and it is within the 24 grace period, cancel them and do it again.

  3. Not sure if my other comment went through.

    Could you please clarify this for me:

    “Simply book from this offer page. ONLY this offer page.”

    Their Terms and conditions say this:

    “Special offer of an extra 9,000 Avios for each ticket purchased between 21 and 24 June 2018 (maximum of 90,000 promotional Avios per member) on iberia.com for a flight operated by Iberia, Iberia Express or Air Nostrum.”

    Reason why I’m curious is I most of my flights last night on the iberia.com frontpage.


  4. Glad to hear you’ve gotten confirmation. I booked 10 for both me and my wife!

    Can you talk more about the confirmation they sent you and the cancellation piece? I intended on just not flying any of those flights in March, but if I can somehow cancel and still keep the avios that’s a win-win. That seemed to be particularly excluded and/or there would be clawback. ^J

  5. Can you confirm this part:

    Simply book from this offer page. ONLY this offer page.

    The terms and conditions simply say book on Iberia.com.

  6. How do i create a iberia plus account? its not letting me and not recognising foreign passports?

  7. Hi, i think there two errors in the post:
    – To obtain Avios you have to fly and it is not clear if Iberia will withdraw the Avios if you are no-show.
    – If you cancel a ticket and ask for refund Iberia will withdraw the Avios as stated in the conditions

  8. for all looking for the cheapest flights: have a look at PMI-MAD in Feb+Mar19. Some are 16 €

  9. @Max,

    i tried searching PMI-MAD in Feb+Mar19..all were at least 43€. Perhaps I’m doing something wrong.

  10. Site has crashed every time I’ve tried. Yes, it’s popular, but even so. Neither will it even let me log in, that also results in a complete crash.

  11. Good luck finding any award flight availability once the miles hit the accounts of the thousands of people who are doing this promotion. It’s going to be fun

    1. Of course!!! It’s like buying points for 8/10 of a penny each. Impossible to go wrong.

  12. Created a Iberia plus account and then booked 10 flights regional one way flights.Now reading that Iberia account should be active for more than 72 hours hours ¿ If so I just lost money on 10 flights I never intend to take.If all goes well fingers crossed 🤞 what is the best redemption of Iberia miles please can you shed some light on this or link a article.Many Thanks
