I bought both a 2,000 and 20,000 Avios package and I thought I was going to get an email with my voucher codes. This was back on 30th August, so I signed into the account today and saw that, under mes commandes, the voucher codes were sitting there waiting for me. I had to scroll down to get the second one, but somehow didn't twig that when I first looked.

Redeeming the vouchers went smoothly and without problems. Maybe it helps that I have a genuine French address with a credit card registered to it?

Got my Avios credited to BAEC today Now let's see how I should use them after that debacle lol

Update : Ended up redeeming them for a cool JL Y award from NRT to PVG

Still not working for me.

I click log in, then back to go to the avios page (I have checked and I'm still logged in) and still get the error message.

I'm going to wait a bit before trying. Sometimes these things take a moment to bed down.

On the website it says each customer can purchase a cap of 100k avios.

On the previous March sale I bought about 18k avios. Does this mean that I can still buy 100k avios on this sale or the max I can buy per year is 100k avios so on this sale I can buy only 82k avios?

I believe it is max 100k avios per sale (not per year).

Don't think you can. Once you register on the UK site that seems to be the site your email is linked to. To access the FR site you need to sign up again (on the FR site) with a different email address.

Absolutely right, just be sure you've got all your settings right before starting the signup process. Same principle applies to the Spanish Groupon offer as well. As for the 100k limit, well, I'm only into buying small amounts anyway and topping off my account.

Cheers.

Error occured due to Chrome having my location set as London. This was overcome by using a different browser on my work phone and using Google translate on my personal phone.

For those not aware Google translate has a camera section which translates writing to English. Excellent for menus! They're currently working on a microphone headphone devise!

I received a 10 voucher as well so 6,000 Avios for 50 (45) bought using a 0% XE 2.5 Avios per 1 Lloyds card so an additional 112 Avios (roughly).

Cheers!
