Another interesting fact - i asked her to then cancel my bookings from the app and that I would try to book via the website. given i booked less than 24 hours ago i expected a full refund - SHE SAID ALL APP BOOKINGS ARE MADE IN SPAIN AND DOT REGULATIONS OF 24 HOUR REFUNDS DONT APPLY. What bull crap is that - i told her to provide me proof via email saying this and she said call center can't send emails. I will wait to see if avios post and if they don't i will escalate to DOT and my credit card issuer
Why did you risk booking through the Iberia APP? The conditions said iberia.com ...

I presume the majority of people are not going to fly the bookings they made. How do you plan to do it? Just a 'no show' or cancel? Can cancellations be made online or you need to call?

I was thinking the same, but realised I could do 3 trips to places I wanted to go anyway. The flights to/from ZRH weren't 20 euros, but they were still good value.

What I didn't do was sign the whole family up for an IB account and put through lots of bookings for them. It just wasn't worth the hassle for me.

oh come on. Read. If you cancel, the points will be clawed back. As has been said by Iberia. Simply no-show.

I realize I could’ve made four or five bookings and got 36,000 Avios or so, but signing a load of people up for it is not something I would want to do. And I still think spending these Avios is going to be a lot harder than you think. Anyway, I have a enough existing points and miles to spend as it is.

Their website is NOT letting many users book (errors like last name doesnt match iberia plus account - i have waited several hours to see that change, nothing's working). App issues tickets from IBERIA.COM - technically that is the same as their website. When I spoke to their customer care agent she said the same thing but said she would like to ensure I get my avios

+ She took my IB number and noted on each reservation the issue
+ This notation will also act as proof that I called to get a refund within 24 hours

So what is everyone planning on spending their 90K of avios on? I’m thinking Madrid-Tel Aviv in business and maybe a Madrid-Morocco if I have enough Avios left 😎

Aren't you in Spain? If you have an Icon card, you can get 8000 avios nights at paradores right now. It's actually quite the deal for hotels.

AFAIK, Iberia.com and Iberia APP are not the same; whenever a booking is made through the app, thereīs a string that says it was made through the App.

Do you honestly believe whatever their agents say? If you call 10 times, you will get 10 different answers. Basically, they donīt give a sit.

Iberia is always difficult to deal with anyway, so putting complicating matters further is not helpful. Sometimes itīs better to wait until their website is back to normal, than risking it with bookings through the app.

I honestly believe, all new iberia plus accounts will struggle getting their promotional Avios posted/credited. I wish itīs not the case, but Iberiaīs IT is not at the forefront.

Itīs THE deal. Shame the Granada Parador is not included. But there are many others which are also gorgeous.

I did read. The points will be clawed back only if you request a refund. Cancellation does not necessary mean that. Don't you think if you no-show for 10 flights it would look a little awkward ?

Thanks - I am where I am so no use fretting about what happened. I am not a new user - my IB account has been in existence for over a year and I fly almost every week on multiple airlines, including Iberia a few times a year. Agree that their IT sucks, but at the same time the point around the app/website being different for this promo just does not make any sense. No airline treats app bookings differently than website booking in terms of WHERE they were issued from. At the end of the day both are issued by iberia.com - one is through the app and one is through a web interface. If that's the level of granularity that Iberia will go to - versus the fact that tickets were issued directly with them - then this is pretty close to a scam in terms of confusing passengers and making money off them

In either case, i will raise a dispute to my card if I don't get the avios, and if need be, contact the DOT. I am NOT paying in case those Avios don't post

Sorry my ignorance. How can you cancel a non-refundable ticket?

It's quite common. Call the airline or manage your reservation online. Click cancel. You won't get your money back but the seat frees up on the flight so the airline can resell it.
