Groupon Spain have resumed their excellent Avios purchase offer in partnership with Iberia
Groupon Spain often run a ‘buy Avios’ offer, which allows you to purchase 2,000 Avios for just 19 euros. This particular offer often sells out quickly – but we are pleased to report that it has returned.
To view all the details, use this link to visit Groupon Spain (opens in a new window) and then type “Avios” into the search box at the top. Note that the page is in Spanish, but if you use Google chrome it will automatically translate the page for you.
At today’s exchange rate, this equates to 0.83p per Avios. There are higher multiples of Avios available for purchase – with packages of up to 35,000 Avios points available – but these work out slightly more expensive than 0.83p per Avios. The various options are:
- 2,000 Avios for €19
- 4,000 Avios for €54
- 8,000 Avios for €99
- 15,000 Avios for €189
- 20,000 Avios for €249
- 35,000 Avios for €439
The 2,000 Avios option is the best deal, as you can often achieve far more than 0.83p per Avios in value when redeeming them for flights. I’m less convinced by the other options, which equate to a cost of just over 1p per Avios.
As the purchase is in Euros, it’s worth noting that some card issuers will charge an additional fee for transactions in a foreign currency. You can get around this by using a card from a free-free service such as Revolut, Starling or Monzo, or get a free Curve card and linking it to your credit or debit card.
In order to claim the Avios after you’ve purchased the Groupon, refer to the Groupon pdf file, which contains:
- A coupon code
- A security code
- A link to an online form, which asks for your voucher code, security code and Iberia plus number
Once you’ve filled out the online form, the Avios should then be deposited into your Iberia plus account within 10 days. If you don’t have an Iberia plus account you can open one here.
In terms of redeeming your Avios, you can either:
- Redeem directly through Iberia plus, or
- Transfer them to your British Airways Executive Club account, and redeem from there
Note that in order to be able to transfer Avios between your Iberia and BA accounts, you need to have held your Iberia plus account for at least 90 days.
