A Note Of Caution

While Iberia does not mention this in its terms and conditions, it seems that the promo is not open to all Iberia Plus members, and some geo-restrictions may apply. When you try to make a booking, you may not be able to get the prices advertised with the promo.

However, we have been unable to determine whether this is due to your physical location when making the booking or which country your Iberia Plus account is registered in. One possible workaround worth trying is using a VPN and connecting to the U.S.

How To Get Iberia Avios

If you are short a few Avios for redemption, there are several options open to you. You can transfer BA Avios over to Iberia (as long as your accounts have been active for 30+ days and you've earned at least 1 Iberia Avios). If a bunch of Avios sitting in your BA account, you can transfer them directly to make your booking.

In addition, Iberia is also a transfer partner of 3 of the 4 major transferable points programs.

Option 1: American Express Membership Rewards

American Express Membership Rewards transfer to Iberia Avios at a ratio of 1:1. You can transfer points earned from The Platinum Card® from American Express, your Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express, or The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express.

Option 2: Chase Ultimate Rewards

Chase Ultimate Rewards can be transferred to Iberia Avios at a ratio of 1:1; transfers are typically completed instantly. Points earned from your Ink Business Preferred℠‎ Credit Card, Chase Sapphire Reserve℠ or Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, are easily transferred to Iberia.

Option 3: Starwood Preferred Guest

Iberia is also a transfer partner to SPG; Starpoints can be transferred including points earned from the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express or the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. Remember SPG has a built-in transfer bonus, which gives you a 5,000-mile bonus when you transfer 20,000 SPG points, giving you an effective transfer ratio of 1:1.25.

Our Take

If you can make your travel plans work, this is a heck of a deal. 51,000 miles for transatlantic round-trip business class seats are a steal!
