There are some amazing airfares to Europe right now from the NY area starting at $426 to Norway, $481 to Denmark and higher for other locations. See this post from Just Another Points Traveller with more info on prices to other locations.
The flights are via Air Canada, United or Norwegian Air (depending on the route) valid for travel from October 26th – December 11th or December 25th – February, 2015. You might have to overnight in Toronto for the Denmark flights but you can also think of this as a way to fly to Toronto AND Denmark for just $481!!
The best deal here though is the non-stop United flights from Newark to Norway for only $426! If you interested in skiing, this is a great time to ski Norway – see below for an idea of availability.
Calendar of Fares…plenty of availability!
Denmark for under $500
I have no idea how long these fares will last, so act fast! If you book via United.com you have 24 hours to cancel if you change your mind.

Updated: See revised post where you could earn United or American miles until 10/1/14 HERE.
If you were interested in switching to DIRECTV, you can now earn 30,000 United miles for signing up with DIRECTV. 30,000 miles is equivalent to one domestic round trip flight (with 5,000 miles leftover) or a one way flight to Europe or South America.
I’m not a DIRECTV customer but the prices seem fairly reasonable (especially if you want NFL Sunday Ticket). I obviously wouldn’t go out of my way to take advantage of this deal but if you already had some thoughts of switching, maybe this is the icing on the cake to do so.
There is a pretty simple and straightforward promotion ongoing right now for holders of the United Credit Card or United elite members. For a few minutes of your time, you can earn 600 miles for completing a simple survey here. Not too shabby for 5 minutes or so of work.
