The last week has been full of award deals in the form of bonus transfers and now award sales.

First, we saw transfer bonuses for Emirates from Capital One (100%) and for Air France Flying Blue from American Express Membership Rewards (25%).

Now, there are two deals on redeeming miles.

Iberia has a sale on for 25% off awards to/from Madrid.

This means you could score a one way Business class ticket from New York, Boston and Chicago <–> Madrid for 37,500 Avios during peak season or  just 25,500 Avios off-peak. You can transfer from your Chase Ultimate Rewards account or American Express Membership Rewards account – or from a British Airways or Aer Lingus Avios account.

Book by March 27th and fly September 1 – December 14, 2019.

It’s a great deal that doesn’t have negative 90,000 Iberia Avios bonus from last year’s promotion. Just search normally to find and book these discounted awards.

Singapore KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes

Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program releases monthly sales, called Spontaneous Escapes, on select routes. From now until March 31st you can redeem for travel between April 1 and 30, 2019. You could go Singapore <–> Sydney in Business Class for 43,400 KrisFlyer miles, for example.

If you are looking to go from Singapore <–> LA in Premium Economy, you can do that in May for 30% off at 47,600 miles.

Bear in mind you still need to find Saver availability to book.
