Spanish airline Iberia has run gift card sales a few times over the past several years and they are once again offering up to 15% off on gift card purchases. While this could potentially save you some money, keep in mind that these gift cards expire in 1 year and can only be used on Iberia and Air Nostrum flights. This could certainly be a useful deal for someone who will spend a significant amount of time in Spain – just go in with your eyes wide open on the limitations.

Again, the discounts here can obviously save you some money if you know you’ll be booking Iberia flights. That said, I’d be hesitant to buy given the short-term one-year expiration. Additionally, I generally prefer to book flights with a credit card that includes travel protections. You could still accomplish that my putting part of your flight purchase on a card that offers trip delay / cancellation / interruption coverage with partial payment, but it adds another dimension to consider. For instance, if you buy a large denomination to maximize the discount and you intend to use it on domestic flights within Spain, you may be covering flights in full with the gift card and eschewing credit card protections. That certainly may be worth it to you, but you’ll need to consider it and decide accordingly.
Note that not only does the gift card expire one year from purchase but you also need to complete travel within 1 year.
If you plan to spend a chunk of time in Spain in the not-distant future, these could certainly save you some money, though I wouldn’t buy these without pretty solid plans and/or a backup plan to travel to Spain at a later date within a year just in case.
