As reported in LoyaltyLobby:

British Airways & Iberia Buy Up To 100,000 Avios At 1.1 Euro Cents Each | LoyaltyLobby

Need to sign up for Vente Privee French site and purchase Avios vouchers, then redeem on Aviosvouchers.com using the promo code provided.
Limited to 100K Avios for each programme (BA & IB).

Yes, I've tried it, logging on to the French version of the website. Brings the avios sale screen up OK, but the quantity field stays blanked out, so can't be used. Maybe it's because I'm located in Australia at the moment.

Anyone had any success with this?

I had to try several times using different browsers. Finally worked on Explorer after clearing all history and cookies. Also make sure you select France at the bottom right on the main screen. Quantity screen will lit up once you select the program you want the points to go to (drop down list above the quantity). Hope this helps.

Yes, it does help, thanks. However, after the various issues encountered, I decided that I'd wait until something more user-friendly and perhaps trustworthy came along. Would have been nice, but not essential.

I bought 60,000 Avios for $AU1,000 include all fees.
Not the most friendly process but it was good value.
Points posted in my account after two days, will most likely use them for one way intra-Europe on BA and IB.
