Availability is limited; these fares under $900 are only available from San Francisco (SFO), Miami (MIA) and Los Angeles (LAX). However, if you can grab yourself a cheap positioning flight via cash or miles, this deal could work for you. Normally these flights go for about $1,400.

Note that the SFO and LAX itineraries include a 22-hour layover in Santiago on the return flight and the Miami itinerary has 23-hour layovers on both legs. But if a day-long opportunity to see a second city on one ticket is your kind of travel, this may be your perfect itinerary.
