You're going to fly 10 times for some promo Avios that will expire before the year is up?
Probably can't even transfer them to BA.

Post by: Pesach on June 21, 2018, 10:25:29 PM
is there a way to get a  full refund on the 10 tickets after you use the avios? meaning if I book the paid  for next spring  2019 and use the avios by September 2018  can i call up Iberia and get a full refund  on the paid tickets?or is it like priceline and other ota that only allow 24 hours.

i just realized you can book business flexible , the question is if iberia shuts you down can ba shut you down as well? and if this is transferable to ba can ba shut you down  for transferring 90,000 from iberia? and would it make sense to mix up  routes  and dates  when booking the paid fare to avoid getting shut down by  iberia?

I am thinking of getting in on this deal, so I am curious, what makes you say that one would get banned? if I buy a ticket, and can't make it onto the flight, is that really so injurious to the airline that they would ban me from their Avios program? Or am I missing something?
Title: Re: Hot Buy Avios at $0.002 per point
Post by: Dan on June 21, 2018, 11:04:55 PM
1, probably nothing.
10, definitely grounds for a ban. AA and BA have banned for far less than that.

Aside from that, odds seem high that they renege.

Technically true for the promo, but buying airplane tickets you don't plan on using is against the ToC of nearly all airlines.

Tell that to an audit team or the people who got banned for buying AA tickets they weren't planning on using.
The airlines don't need a burden of proof to do what they want.

Thanks. Saw Dan's post. However, it does say on the registration that points are only recorded if the name matches the one on the ID. This could potentially be a dis-qualifier if they are looking for a reason to disqualify the points.

When trying to book it won't allow me to put my IB FFN, it says that my name on my reservation doesn't match the name on the FFN. which doesn't make sense since I'm booking logged in, and selected that I'm flying so the name was input DIRECTLY from my FFN. I tried typing it in manually as well.
Any recourse?

“Name”

Name is your legal name. Your legal name must match the name on your passport (ID). Of course, they may not enforce it, but that would be an easy legal way to strike down all the fake accounts made in the last 24 hours.

If you are able to create a fake name that matches a fake passport, please do tell. We'd all love to know  ;)

Update: after waiting on hold for about 40 minutes, 2 Iberia reps confirmed to me that even though the FF number isn’t showing (takes 48 hours after account open to fully activate), the 9,000 avios per flight will still post to the account. Phew.

None come up. You have to manually enter last name & booking code. Take a screenshot of each res as you do it because not all of their email conf’s come in and that’s the only way you’d have to booking ref.

Dan mentioned something about getting a negative balance on iberia  if you transfer to ba and the expiration for these points come. so maybe that might be the case if you booked a refundable business ticket far out into 2019 and used up the points before december 2018 and wanted to cancel  the 2019 paid flights to get a full refund would iberia give you refund issues?and in effect make you pay for the avios points you used?

Why are people asking about refundable? These are the sort of questions that get deals killed for everyone. Be happy with buying for .2 cents. Don’t commit fraud or give the airline more of a reason to go after you.

Are you booking 10 seats on the same flight for the same passenger? Doesn’t seem to intelligent...
I assumed you can't do that, so I booked 10 flights on different dates. You need to book the ticket with a connection to an avios account, that only works if you are the one flying if I understood correctly, can you even book multiple seats on the same flight with the SAME person on Iberia?
Also if you book 10 separate flights at least there's a היכי תמצא that you might actually take the flights...

You don’t have to fly by 12/1, just have to book by then. With Iberia, you can book for almost a year in advance.

I say it shouldn't make any difference. If they have any good inventory management, and they realize the increased sales activity after they confirmed that no-shows still get to keep the promo, they can assume with a very high probability that tickets purchased between that initial confirmation and the promo end time, are likely to be no-shows (especially when same passenger purchased multiple one-ways, always into MAD and never from MAD).

That would be more classy. However, if they want to ensure extra flights are cancelled they are more likely to threaten that they will cancel the bonus Avios if flights aren't cancelled.

Same here.

I'm a little concerned, as one of the tickets I bought was for a summer departure. After the date I was anticipating using (and flying) with the Avios which should be given, but then again, you never know what will happen.

Your outrage helps nobody.

Maybe the avios are for a trip with his brother?

And they have avios from other sources in his pre-existing Iberia account, and doesn’t want to riak duplicTe accounts, (which was actually mentioned in blogs as a risk factor)

Leave the judgement aside, or go to the ethics thread.

Cite the source.

As far as would it extend expiration - try and find out. It’s clear they want these promo avios to be short lived. Nobody has experience with what works yet.

I would wait a bit... many people that did not get their points posted yesterday got them today, so it’s likely a tiered process. Many people in the same boat as you.

For those that followed Dan's advice regarding the age of the kids, I wonder how that will shake out in the verification process.

How? The earliest birthdate they allow you to create is year 2000, which would make an under 18 account a falsely created account.

They are very particular about married segments. You will find very different availability depending on where youre connecting to from MAD.

 My experience though has been that I was able to book NYC-MAD-XXX and collect my luggage in MAD and transfer to MAD-TLV.

I only found RJ and CX when searching RT.

They seem to have disabled the ability to transfer Avios out of IB. I transferred from BA in order to top off for an itinerary I was going to book. When I decided to book something else I tried moving Avios back, and it wouldn't let me do any. BA to IB or BA<->Aer Club seems to work ok.

Hmm. Wonder if they would just claw back 9,000 per flight missed, as it’s missed, or all 90,000 at the first missed flight, or not at all. So many variables.

(Back in the 90s the had some kind of an error fare where JFK-MAD-TLV was pricing in the low $400s if the TLV-MAD segment was booked in J. The flight experience TLV-MAD was terrible. Lights stayed on, no IFE, no snacks, flight attendants didn't show up when called. They did provide a hotel for overnight connection, but on the return TLV-MAD the check-in agents refused to issue J boarding passes and put anyone that had such a ticket in Y).

I booked 10 OW various routes, IBZ-MAD, VGO-MAD, PMI-MAD (that one is in July, was going to be after the date award ticket would be used, but plans changed). Some of the others are in August, September, November and December.

I was on the fence whether or not to get in on this deal for a few days. What caused me to shy away is the fact that i spent the last 3 months fighting with IB because they messed up my INF ticket when i last flew with them and made me buy a new ticket in the airport.


I was promised numerous times that i will quickly get that refund on my credit card.


It took countless phone calls and hours to finally get back the $327. Their customer service is infuriatingly non-existent.

My cheshbon:

I booked 10 ow SDR-MAD, typically one per week in the spring time. 

Did this same pattern for each of 5 individuals: myself and DW (old accounts) each of our 3 children (new accounts).

BH, DW and I had our points posted and they remain. In fact, I had a previously booked award flight that would conflict with one of these SDR-MAD flights, but BH that didn’t seem to bother anyone.

Our three children’s accounts got bupkus. One got the request for ID. One I can’t remember.  One got “you opened new account and had an old account, so we canceled the new one, and BTW you won’t get Avios.”  That was my oops — didn’t remember that DD had a prior account  and had her make a new one.

I’m waiting to get past the 330 days to book for me and DW (and hoping there is no clawback before that day arrives).  I suspect that none of the kids will get their Avios, so I will try to get their flights refunded.

I got the 90k points on the first day they started posting, I wanted to used them for business class tickets local or to Canada, AA is a waste, I am open to several destinations, but AA has nothing without overnight connections or a long layover.

Your best bet is iberia J to Madrid.  It's great and the lounge there is terrific as well, from there you can easily connect anywhere in Europe.

I got about 2.5cpp (including some BA Avios that needed to be transferred). I might have done better if I were booking something for myself, but this was a favor for a family member, who was just looking for the cheapest option, and this was better than anything revenue, and one leg in J is just a bonus.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconveniences we may have caused you for not being able to respond until today the e-mail you sent us few days ago.

We would like to inform you that it is not possible to credit the corresponding Avios for the promotion, since we noticed the Iberia Plus account linked to the bookings belongs to a minor that was registered as an adult.

In order to process the corresponding registration of minors, it is necessary that you send to ibplusmenores@iberia.es a copy of the minor¿s and parent¿s (guardian or legal representative) IDs or passports and a signed and filled copy of the registration form (Signatures between documents must match).

You can download the minor¿s registration form on the link below:
https://www.iberia.com/wcs/documentos/ibplus/IBPKIDS_Solicitud_Alta.pdf

As an exceptional case, if you wish to cancel any of the tickets you bought for the promotion under your cancelled account, you may do so without additional charges by indicating us the ticket number (which begins with 075) before July 31st, 2018 (Spanish Time - UTC/GMT +2 hours).

Make sure there has been activity in your BA account in the past 36 months before transferring IB points. Otherwise, they will automatically expire as transferring points does not constitute activity.

I've already been refunded without explanation, they insist I'll still be getting it, but as soon as I mention how late it's been etc I get no reply.

I'm ignorant to obtain avios as I have never used the points. I got over 160K points from a bonus sign up years ago and then I converted all my MR to Avios because of a transfer bonus. They recently reinstated my points since there was no activity. I am told I can make a purchase. What is the best way to maintain my avios account and retain the points?

They were nice enough to make this amazing and generous promo and we all went into it knowing the restrictions. Just accept it for what it is, or sell your remaining points.

Don’t try to undercut them and play Shtick every way you can imagine.

.6 is actually a good price for selling these promo avios. Lots of people sold at .4. Either way no one put a gun to your head to sell at .6 you both agreed on a price. So now that you feel you got ripped odd you want to take it out on IB?

Ahem.

.6 is actually a good price for selling these promo avios. Lots of people sold at .4. Either way no one put a gun to your head to sell at .6 you both agreed on a price. So now that you feel you got ripped odd you want to take it out on IB?

That may be it. Gcmap has mine as 296 miles, so even RT is same bracket.

I booked 10 OW various routes, IBZ-MAD, VGO-MAD, PMI-MAD (that one is in July, was going to be after the date award ticket would be used, but plans changed). Some of the others are in August, September, November and December.

So now I got the following email:

(https://i.imgur.com/mQSNRYw.png)

@ChaimMoskowitz is it OK to ask for a refund because the new flight schedule doesn't work for me?

On another note, I keep on getting these flight reminders from IB, which all make me feel like I should have doubled down on this deal. (Now using that term, I need to check with @whYME whether it's OK to screw IB after they screwed so many people with hours spent and so much anxiety?)

Dear Customer,

We would like to remind you that the Avios you earned in the promotion last June had special terms and conditions, as we pointed out at the time. As such, please note that the promotional Avios obtained during that campaign will no longer be available in your account if you do not redeem them in the Iberia Plus programme before 1 December 2018.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that the programme does not include the transfer of Avios, as indicated in the general terms and conditions.

Yours sincerely,
The Iberia Plus Team

No changes or refunds is only for non IB(+subsidiaries) and BA partners (example AA).

And that has nothing to do with the promo Avios, just the IB rules.

Did you cancel already? It's certainly possible.

If this promo has taught us anything, its not to rely on IB (especially not the word of a regular CS rep).
