FARE ALERT: $327-386 New York (JFK) – Buenos Aires, Argentina (EZE)

Thanks to The Flight Deal, an amazing fare to Buenos Aires, Argentina has been discovered. $386 JFK-GIG-EZE-GIG-JFK round trip!

This deal is being brought to us by TAM Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance.

There are two different parts of this deal – one that will earn United miles and one that won’t.

Things to Note

  • If you choose flights that are marketed by TAM but operated by LAN Airlines, you will probably have no chance to earn miles in any program except TAM’s.
    • Not my personal preference, but for those of you who just want a cheap flight to Buenos Aires, this will knock the price down to $327!
  • For US citizens visiting Argentina, you must pay an entry fee on arrival of $160, and it lasts for 10 years.
  • Orbitz has a 24 hour cancellation policy. You’ll get 100% of the ticket value and taxes back!
    • This is definitely one of those BOOK NOW, THINK LATER situations!

How to Book

The easiest way to book these is on Orbitz.com. Use the Round Trip tool and input JFK and EZE. The results will simply show up.

Don’t forget to go through your favorite shopping portal and link through to Orbitz for a few more % cash back. I

This is operated by TAM so it will earn 100% on United!

Don’t forget. You can only credit this routing to TAM’s frequent flyer program!

FARE ALERT: $315 Off Any Alitalia Flight

We’re going JFK to Madrid for $284!

Using the Japanese Alitalia site and the promo code PROMOJP, you can get 25,000 YEN (about $315) off any Alitalia flight!

Use this for whatever you want.

People are booking intra-Europe flights for almost NOTHING.

Personally, I separately booked Joann and I for a trip to Madrid in January.

TIPS

  • Use Google Chrome because it has a nifty Translate feature so you can translate everything on the page back to English.
  • Pay with a credit card that has no foreign exchange fees so you don’t get dinged on that (e.g. Chase Sapphire Preferred).
  • If you have a Delta SkyMiles account, there is a spot where you can enter that as your loyalty program so you can earn Delta miles for these flights.

If you have any questions or need help booking, just ask!
