I honestly hope they'll simply issue a refund for new accounts or clamp down on this in some other way. Otherwise I feel the risk of them not honoring the promotion for anyone is just too high.
I booked 80 tickets by the way. ;-)

Well, now we know how they plan to clamp down. If the account was newly-created, they are requesting that you provide a snapshot of the passport to match the ID of the account. In other words, they want to make sure you didn't create a fake account with a non-existent passport number. If you booked 80 tickets, hopefully you did so with 8 legit accounts, each linked to an actual person with verifiable passport info. If not, then you may run into some trouble.

Of course I booked for family members, and only after they asked me to book.
They didn't have their ID documents at hand though, so I created their accounts with dummy data. We'll see how that will go, but I've submitted passport information anyhow.

I was really tempted to sign up my dog, but I wasn't sure if 5-year-olds can be Iberia Plus members.

I doubt that there will be a lot of fake accounts. Most of us probably know enough people they could convince to jump on this promotion.

So this has just come through from [email protected] (bolding mine):

​​​​​​Dear Coathanger:

Regarding your request, we inform you that we have checked your Iberia Plus account details and we noticed your country of residency is AUSTRALIA, we are sorry to inform you that our 9,000 Avios promotion was not valid for this country.
For this reason, it is not possible for us to credit the corresponding 9,000 Avios, since there is a discrepancy between your Iberia Plus account and your booking¿s country of issue.
We kindly recommend you to contact our Customer Service Line at the phone number (+1) 800 772 4642 and request the total reimbursement of your tickets.
Also we would like to inform you that your Iberia plus account has been blocked for security reason. In order to activate your account, it is necessary to send an email to [email protected] with a signed copy of the Rectification Data Document and a copy of your ID or Passport.
You can download the Rectification Data Document from the link below:
https://www.iberia.com/ibcomv3/conte...bloqueopin.pdf

When you send us the documents, please write your Iberia Plus number in the email subject.
We apologize for the inconveniences this may have cause you.

Best regards,
Your Iberia Plus Service Center.

anyone have any luck filing claims with card issuers? Think that's my next course of action - doubt this will be honored.

That is actually the most reasonable way to clamp down on this.
What's the likeliness of somebody flying in from the other side of the world to fly 10 domestic flights within Spain back and forth?

Weird, they didn't asked me the Iberia avios number in subject of the email, neither the PDF.
Not sure if good idea to send a new email...

What a nice little adventure !
Just mailed them my passport scan like a message in a bottle, hoping to unlock the door to aviooos aplenty...
Then again, some evil part of me is secretly hoping for a major ....-up on their part, just in order to collectively double-up and get our first FT class action... How cool would that be

The promo had a requirement that you be located in "Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Mexico, or the US". So if he is in Australia, then its a good thing they informed him before this dragged out any further.

No, the promo requirement was that you book on the country-specific website.

I sent them an email immediately after booking with the 10 eTicket numbers to confirm eligibility.

The T&Cs stated you had to book through the Iberia.com website for the above countries, without a residency requirement.

It was not from a specific website, it was that your account is located in a specific country.
You can be Australian, currently in Singapore booking on US website with a French address > will work.
At least it's what I understand, the important thing is the address in your avios account. Maybe I'm wrong but it's the way I understood it.

What worries me more is that they're asking on Twitter whether you were logged into your account when booking. That was not mentioned in the T&C.

Anyway this promo was vague enough to be able to play the game but also vague enough to lead to such issues
Gambling but funny stuff
