Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, however, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away.

Flights to Canada are notoriously expensive, even from cities that are a regional-jet distance away. But, if you already know you’re looking to travel to Montreal in September, October or November, there are some good deals posted on American from various departure cities. That includes $174 round-trip nonstop fares from American’s Dallas (DFW) and Philadelphia (PHL) hubs, and from New York (JFK).

Other departure cities with fares less than $200 include Denver, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

As an added bonus, these fares are all listed in regular (not basic) economy, so you’ll get to choose a seat when you purchase your ticket. If you buy with an American Airlines co-branded credit card, you can save on bag fees, too.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Then, click through to book directly with the airline.
