1. You can book BA awards with these points.
2. You can transfer to a BA acct with the same name after both accounts have been opened for 3 months.

I have BA and Iberia for over 3 months. Do you transfer it from BA? I tried transferring from iberia and I could not get it done.

AFAIK it's supposed to work both ways, but I have no personal experience.

If you transfer AMEX>IB then BA>IB should work.

Your IB account has to be active. As far as I remember, I had to transfer 1000 from Amex to 'activate' the account.

Now it works both ways.

Trying to book a domestic flight on Vueling with IB avios and keep on getting this error:

We have detected a possible improper use of your payment card. For your security we have not allowed the completion of the sale online with this payment card. .
If you wish you can go to one of our offices [Open in a new window] to make the booking and purchase.

Tried multiple cards and all get the same error note. Called IB and they said you cannot book domestic Spain flight with a US billing card. Anyone heard of this?

Heard response from them today on it:

Hi, ******. In fact, this isn't an error. It's an anti-fraud system for flights operated by other airlines. To check if our colleagues are able to offer an alternative payment method, you need to call Serviberia over the phone. Regards

Ticketed. Keep in mind if booking a domestic Spain ticket on IB or VY using avios, you need to change country at the top left from USA to Spain.

I am having the same issue as azhoopsfan (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=76714.msg1715374#msg1715374) although on a much much smaller scale. I originally added miles to my account with this DDMS (https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/milespoints/get-50-free-iberia-avios-better-award-availability-with-lower-fuel-surcharges-to-israel/) posted promotion back in Sept 2014 so I should be able to transfer Avios between my BA and Iberia account without having to wait 3 months. When I got the email a few weeks ago that my points are expiring I transferred a few over with the intention of thereby avoiding the expiration.

Will be the same $58.36 RT tax that BA would charge you. You would be saving 3k Avios for a RT ticket.

They do not allow household accounts.
