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.

But if you have the BA Chase card with active spending, then you should be fine? Right?

In theory... I would make a dummy booking and cancel right away. It would cost $5.60 in fees, but well worth the 90k

Four out of my five accounts posted, but one remains in limbo. I'm quickly losing hope. Having failed via email x 3 and phone x 2, I am trying via twitter DM a last ditch effort either to get the points or to have them cancel and refund.  If that fails, I'll file charge-back with Amex.

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.

So, you could end up with points at no dollar cost? And I could end up with dollar cost but no points? Yes, sounds like IB knows what they're doing.  ???

Anyone have a workaround to transfer the points to BA, they won't allow me too because my Iberia account isn't open for 3 months yet

They can ban you over a negative balance.
From the FF program, not the airline, I presume?

First of all the airline as well. Ask Lucky.

Second - being banned from the FF program might be worse then being banned from the airline.

Lucky isn't banned from UA, he's banned from MP.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Wasn't a period of time from both?
