Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Here’s an excellent deal on United’s nonstop between Los Angeles (LAX) and Singapore (SIN) — even on the inaugural flight on this route. Same-day returns are available if you need a late-year mileage run, or stick around and explore the wonderful city of Singapore.

If you’re looking to do a mileage run, here are the earnings on some popular Star Alliance programs:

  • United MileagePlus: 17,540 PQM; 296 PQD; 2 PQS; 1,480 base award miles (before elite bonuses)
  • Singapore KrisFlyer: 4,385 elite-qualifying and award miles (25% of flight miles) due to the recent earning devaluation
  • Aeroplan: 8,770 miles (50% of flight miles)
