Iberia Plus is offering 2,500 free Avios when you get your children aged 2 to 11 to sign up for the Iberia Plus Kids program by August 31st, 2012. To take advantage of this offer, you must also fill-out the Registration Form and email it to [email protected] Don’t worry, the form is in both English and Spanish and is relatively painless- even if your youngins don’t have a passport, it seems like a Social Security Number will suffice.

If you do score this bonus, you can also create a British Airways Avios account for your children then transfer your Iberia Avios to it after 90 days. Then create a household account and combine everyone’s Avios points within the family–meaning your family Avios account could quickly add up if you have several children. One-way short haul awards start at 4,500 Avios, so in a typical household all you need is two children between the ages of 2 and 11 to get flying! You can also keep your kids Avios in the Iberia program and transfer American Express Membership Rewards directly into their account and then book awards for yourself. Iberia Avios charge less taxes/fees on some awards and Iberia releases much more award availability to their own frequent flyer members than other partner programs, including British Airways.

I recently flew a friend one-way using Iberia Avios from Miami to Madrid in Iberia economy for 37,500 Avios and ~$46 in fees. The same flight was not available when I checked the Britishairways.com Avios search and even if it was, fees would have been at least $250. I definitely recommend opening an Iberia Avios account, even if you don’t partake in this kids promotion, because it can save huge amounts of fees on awards- especially if you travel on Iberia.

    Do NOT, under any circumstance, give up a social security number. I know someone at the agency, and she nearly went through the roof when I mentioned this to her.

  • Mooper

    Why? You suspect Iberia will do something harmful with the information?

  • thepointsguy

    Good point- and are they really going to run a background check to cross reference it? Doubtful.

    So they have 1er Appelido – Last name and 2 Appelido – Last name – which is the middle name and which is the last Name – anyone know?

  • Federico

    Enter your middle name after your first name in the “name” box.

    In this age of identity theft, you would not give your child’s SSN number for a promotional program. They don’t need the info and it could have a negative lifetime effect on the child if their identity is stolen.

    Can I make up kids if I don’t have any?

  • Katherinesalt

    Will this also work for my child over the age of 12?

  • TPG Intern Ryan

    It can’t hurt to try though it says those 12 and over will be sent a regular adult card.

  • DadAndFiveGals

    Looks enticing… Wonder if the “ID card/passport” can be a state issued ID (in other words not a US Passport card/book)

  • mikes

    Did you happen to try this? A state ID might work as a “resident card” or “national identity card”.

    I’m not willing to give up photocopies of 3 passports to get a few thousand Avios, when there are (were) easier ways to get them in much larger quantities.

    I’m also wondering if they would turn around and require a copy of a birth certificate as well, based on “documentation will be required” up top. US passports do not have parentage information, but maybe European ones do? You certainly can’t depend on surname, right?

  • mikes

    This apparently requires proof of legal ID. If you could manage that, make them adults and sign them up for some big fat CC sign up bonuses. :)

  • Jacob

    has this worked for anyone? I sent in the info last week and have not had a response

  • Marc

    Well, I got the 2,500 miles per kid. But when I went to transfer to my BA Avios acct, I was told that transfers from Iberia to BA Exec Club are only for participants over age 18. Anyone else have the same problem, or find a way around it?

  • Lori

    Can I book tickets for my kids with my British airways avios points transferred to my Iberia plus account without having a separate account for them.
