For the past few days, Iberia has been selling gift cards with a 25% discount and as I’ve shown in a couple of blog posts, these gift cards can be used to make some truly fantastic savings on already heavily discounted Business Class fares for travel from the US to Europe or from Europe to the US. Today, however, is the last day of the gift card sale so there are just hours left to lock-in some of the amazing deals that are still on offer.

Iberia’s Gift Card Sale

Through the end of today, Iberia is running a promotion in which it’s selling gift cards with a 25% discount, and because there doesn’t appear to be a cap on the value of the gift cards that you can purchase, these gift cards can be used to book some amazing deals.

There are, however, a few things that you need to know before you decide to buy any gift cards.

  • Gift cards can be purchased in USD, Euro, or GBP so you should be covered whichever Iberia website you use and for whichever currency your fares are quoted.
  • The gift cards are only valid for one year from the date of purchase.
  • The gift cards can only be used to purchase flights operated by Iberia, Iberia Express, and Air Nostrum.

That last point is especially important because it means that you cannot book some of the non-stop American Airlines codeshares that may appear in your search results, and you cannot book flights with a connection in the US as the connecting flight will not be operated by Iberia.

Nevertheless, despite these restrictions, the Business Class deals on offer can be fantastic.

USA – Madrid Business Class Deals

I wrote about these fares in a little more detail here, but here’s the key information.

Excluding any savings to be had by using a gift card purchased with a 25% discount, these are the Business Class fares that I’ve seen:

  • Boston – Madrid from $1,877
  • Chicago – Madrid from $1,845
  • Miami – Madrid  from $1,961
  • New York (JFK) – Madrid  from $1,845
  • San Francisco – Madrid from $1,961

Once you factor in the 25% discount that you would get by buying gift cards in the current sale (and then using them to book these fares), this is what the Business Class deals look like:

  • Boston – Madrid from $1,408
  • Chicago – Madrid from $1,384
  • Miami – Madrid  from $1,471
  • New York (JFK) – Madrid – from $1,384
  • San Francisco – Madrid from $1,471

Roundtrip Business Class fares for travel between the US and Europe priced at under $1,500 are rare, and to find fares that low for non-stop travel from the West Coast to Europe on a full-service carrier is nothing short of fantastic.

Madrid – USA Business Class Deals

I wrote about these fares in a little more detail here, but here’s the key information.

Excluding any savings to be had by using a gift card purchased with a 25% discount, these are the Business Class fares that I’ve seen:

  • Madrid – Chicago from $1,527
  • Madrid – Los Angeles from $1,559
  • Madrid – Miami from $1,501
  • Madrid – New York from $1,501
  • Madrid – San Francisco from $1,501 (only to the end of October)

Once you factor in the 25% discount that you would get by buying gift cards in the current sale (and then using them to book these fares), this is what the Business Class deals look like:

  • Madrid – Chicago from $1,145
  • Madrid – Los Angeles from $1,169
  • Madrid – Miami from $1,126
  • Madrid – New York from $1,126
  • Madrid – San Francisco from $1,126 (only to the end of October)

It’s hard to overstate just how good all of these deals are, and the fact that these fares are available for travel over Christmas and New Year (on 4 of the routes) and into 2022 makes them all the more incredible. I highly doubt that we’ll see any non-stop Europe – USA deals that beat these prices in 2021.

Bottom Line

Iberia is currently offering some great Business Class fares for travel between the US and Europe and it’s also offering a 25% discount on gift card sales. By combining the great Business Class fares with the gift card sale it’s possible to lock-in some truly amazing deals for transatlantic travel into 2022 but with the gift card sale ending today (19 March), the very best deals will soon be history.
