American is offering sub-$1,000 business class fares from most US cities to Buenos Aires (EZE), Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Sao Paulo (GRU), Lima (LIM), Montevideo (MVD), and Santiago (SCL).

  • Brazil currently requires a negative PCR from within 72 hours and does not require quarantine.
  • Chile and Peru currently require a negative PCR from within 72 hours and have additional quarantine requirements.
  • Argentina and Uruguay are not open to most foreign citizens through at least January 31st.

Travel is valid on select dates from 1/16-4/30.

During non-COVID times, that would be less than the cost of an economy class ticket.

Pricing expires tonight at 11:59pm CT.

Checking the fare rules for JFK to Sao Paulo, it seems that if you change to a less expensive fare, like a $38 Miami-Atlanta flight, would result in a cash refund for the remaining balance.

Using Chase Points:

You can pay for the ticket with “hybrid points” such as AMEX or Chase points with a card that allows your points to be used at an increased value for airfare in addition to be able to transfer points into airline miles.

If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card you can redeem points for 1.5 cents each towards travel. If you have a Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Ink Preferred you can redeem points for 1.25 cents each towards travel.

You can login to your account and redeem Chase points for travel here. The cost will be 64,276 points with a Sapphire Reserve. That rate include all taxes and you will still earn flight miles as well!


Using AMEX points:

You can login to your account and redeem AMEX points for travel here.

This is bookable for 96,415 points with AMEX. Plus you’ll get back a rebate of 33,745 points with the Business Platinum Card or 24,104 points with the Business Gold Card, dropping the total needed to as low as 62,670 points. That includes all taxes and you can still earn miles for flying!

How many miles would you earn on this ticket

EXP Flyer

Depends on your status of course but EQM’s approx 20k, EQD approx $890 and Award miles varies based on status


Any tips on returning to the US after 1/26 due to the needed COVID test results policy? From South America or Mexico.


If I end up cancelling will my UR be redeposited?
