    From javabtes on FT

    Enjoy it while it lasts. Moderate amount of availability. Route through IAH for $0.0105 per EQM, and nearly $0.005 per RDM if you're elite earning at a 100% bonus.

    Thanks for posting it over here. Most are midweek which don't work for me as i used up all my vacation for OZ Fest. of course some of the good days are for when i'm gone. Many flights had the price available at different times of the day making it no much nicer then some deals

    I booked a trip, but probably will have to cancel it. I really only use the MR deals to take trips, not MR, and SAN and BOS are both inconvenient starting points. Unfortunate, but I hope lots of people can take advantage of this bargain!

    Just booked 5/7 with a return on the redeye the same night. Looks like there are a few same day Sat turns.

    I had a $180 travel cert from CO. Looking to book 3 of these for a grand total of less than $10!!!!

    I think those costs per mile are halved, since the fare quoted is really OW and the miles are calculated RT, no?

    There are lots of different connections as well for great "one way" rates to these connecting cities

    EDIT: no, it looks like those EQM/RDM numbers are, in fact, correct. 5800 miles BOS-IAH-SAN-IAH-BOS @ $60.

    Got it.

    Some fares were $20 (everything I saw was) and some were $10. So your math was based on the $10, plus taxes.

    Congrats for getting one. I found several, but couldn't make it work with my schedule.

    What was your final total?

    Always book first! 24 hour cancellation and I believe they have some sort of FARELOCK guarantee now.

    I couldn't find anything that worked with my schedule either. This blows the SAN-PIT MR I booked on CO last week out of the water.

    What's with all of the cheap G fares on CO lately? Not that I'm complaining! :D

    Let's hope this is some result of the UA/CO merger and it'll continue!

    Just that one. BOS>IAH>SAN>EWR>BOS
    I had to book using only CO metal to use my E-Certs. I had a few more segments found but they used parial UA metal. It'll be interesting to see how many people got this fare on each flight.

    Most of the time you just have to be in the right place at the right time. Thats what happened to me today. was going to work through lunch and decided at the last minute to come home. Logged on to the site and there it was a deal from BOS that had just been posted
