The Avios have posted, the Avios have posted!
Let’s keep this short and happy, reports just started popping up this afternoon that the bonus Iberia Avios from the recent promo that awarded up to 90,000 bonus Avios are starting to appear in Iberia accounts. They are a few days late posting in some cases, but that is water under the bridge in my book.
In my own account, my four booked Iberia tickets resulted in 36,000 bonus Avios now sitting safely in my account. If yours aren’t there yet, I think they are posting somewhat based on when you purchased your ticket, so don’t fret.
Iberia is not just backing away from this promo, so while I’m sure there will be some kinks and unique cases that fall outside the norm, the Avios are indeed starting to post, which is great news. Remember you have to book tickets utilizing these Avios by December 1, 2018, and you are not supposed to transfer them to British Airways or similar or risk having a negative Avios balance. You need to use them to book award flights on Iberia or their partners via the Iberia program.
So, now that the bonus Avios are starting to appear, where are you going to go?
