Earlier today I posted about TAP Portugal’s one-way sale to Rome and Paris. There are related one-way fares to Barcelona and Madrid, which often figure in TAP sales. These fares are in the same general time frame as today’s other sale (fall and winter), with a minor addition: Chicago and San Francisco fares are good on Jan 30th, meaning you can be in Spain for New Year’s Eve! As before if you would rather use points than cash, these basic economy fares start at just over 8,000 UR through Chase’s travel portal with the Sapphire Reserve’s 1.5 cent redemption ration. Buying up to main cabin for seat selection and checked bag is about $95 more, meaning you can fly to Europe for under 15,000 points per person. That beats most domestic award redemptions from these cities!

  • BarcelonaNew York from $124; Miami from $154; Chicago from $142; Boston from $173; San Francisco from $280
  • Madrid: New York from $123; Boston from $130; Chicago from $184San Francisco from $280


Don’t forget your opportunity for a free stopover in Portugal on certain dates, making this a chance to visit two European cities at once, all for less than $200. That’s hard to beat under any circumstances, so check Google Flights, the Chase travel portal, or your favorite online travel agency and book your trip!
