    Looking to do a MR out of LGA or EWR using Star Alliance carriers. Need 5K miles, prefer to do it on a weekend in December.

    Any suggestions?

    US Airways EWR-SAN on Dec 10-11 for $283 but requires an overnight.

    Here's a site I like to get an idea of what fares are published - some of the fares will be already sold out, but it gives you a starting place:

    be careful of fare classes and mileage credited for them.

    You may want to consider JFK/LGA instead since prices are kind of locked in a "monopoly" market with CO at EWR. JFK-SFO/LAX-JFK easily gives you 5K on UA.

    If you qualify for 500-mile minimums, EWR-PHX-TUS-PHX-EWR on US Airways, available same day turns on Fri 12/2 and perhaps other days for $250.80. This is a pure same day turn, not even a red-eye return.
