Chase Iberia Visa Launches: 50k Avios & Not 5/24

Check out our Top Rewards Cards to boost your points earning and travel more!

Update 4/23/18: the new public offer adds an extra 25,000 Avios for reaching $20,000 in the first year. As I was already approved under the old offer below, I wrote in via secure message and was approved to receive this new offer. Once I meet the spend (if I do), I’ll need to reply to them to claim it for manual processing.

Chase has made a surprise launch of the Iberia Visa to complement their British Airways card. With British Airways and Iberia Avios now easy to transfer between each other, this is a great new Avios boost.

Not Subject to 5/24?

The British Airways card is not subject to 5/24 and early reports are Iberia is not as well. Yay!

Update 1: I applied 3/15/18, I am way over 5/24, my application went to pending as have all my Chase applications the past few years.

Update 2: the reason for my application going to pending came in the form of a paper letter asking me to call in to verify my indentity. I did that and the application was approved over the phone with no further questions. I also have the BA card.

Thanks to IAD Gr8 for sharing the news.

$30k spend for the $1k voucher…way less appealing than $10k.
