Delta and United Airlines are offering flights from New York (JFK on Delta and EWR on United Airlines) from $525.

Travel dates are October 20 – December 24, 2012.

I had hoped American would match but as of this morning they still have not.  Although they did lower their prices from what they had been offering yesterday.

Those of us on the West Coast can still take advantage of this offer, but we’ll pay a little bit more.

Yesterday I was finding LAX-IST on United from $756.

This morning, I’m finding LAX-IST on American from $1021.

The AAdvantage (pun intended) of flying on American: all fares are upgradeable. If you have a SWU or two, it might be worth the extra $265 to pay for coach and upgrade to Business Class.

Thanks to Brian from The Point Guy for the heads up.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points (after spending $4,000 in the first three months).
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 2X points on travel and dining, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
