Iberia Awards 25% off – NYC<->Spain for 12,750 coach / 25,500 Business (each way)
Doctor of Credit just reported on an Iberia Award sale that makes Avios redemptions 25% off. Good thing they did, because the sale doesn’t seem to be mentioned on their website (or at least I don’t see it). But the awards are indeed discounted.
I’m searching from NYC to Madrid and finding solid availability for 12,750 miles in coach or 25,500 miles in Business Class each-way.
Iberia provides a nice and modern Business Class (think along the lines of modern business class products on AA, Finnair, Alitalia, etc).
While you could also book Iberia with AA miles, this will work out to half the price! You can transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards and/or Amex points to Avios or, if you already have both a British Airways Avios account and an Iberia account (has earned at least a point), then you can freely transfer your BA Avios into Iberia.
Here’s the cost of that NYC to Madrid itinerary I tried (availability on both days I popped in!) for November.
New to all of this? My new “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available now.
