Spain is a popular destination and US airlines from every alliance service Barcelona and Madrid. The abundance of flights means serious competition, so carriers constantly run sales to the country. And this afternoon, we are seeing some amazingly cheap nonstop flights to both Barcelona (BCN) and Madrid (MAD) from New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), San Francisco (SFO) and Philadelphia (PHL) with prices starting from $233 round-trip.

Some of these flights are on one of my favorite economy options across the Atlantic -- like Iberia's brand new Airbus A350-900. I got a chance to try out this product right after it was launched on its first transatlantic flights, and it was a solid experience. The cheapest options are in basic economy so you'll have to pay extra for a checked bag and seat selection.

Note that Iberia Visa Signature Card cardholders can get a slightly discounted price through the card's 10% discount. However, unlike the British Airways Chase 10% discount -- which discounts the fare, taxes and fees on British Airways-operated flights -- the Iberia 10% discount only reduces the base fare. And since this base fare is so cheap, the 10% discount only drops the price by a few dollars.

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. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
