You can transfer AMEX or Chase points to Iberia at a 1:1 ratio or Marriott points to Iberia at a 60K:25K ratio.
You can also transfer British Airways Avios into Iberia Avios, but both accounts have to have been open for 90 days and both accounts must be active. Transfers from AMEX or earning miles from other sources activate an account. You can combine points via this link via the BA site. Sometimes that link doesn’t work so you can also try this link on the Iberia site to combine points. If you don’t have an account it’s a good idea to open one now here to allow you to make transfers in the future. You can also call BA to transfer Avios to Iberia.
You can earn up to 100K bonus Iberia Avios on the Chase Iberia card.
