Thanks to Beaulieu for noting this in post #768, it seems the MAN-SAT AA fare has been refilled so details below. Also covers MAN to OKC, LIT, and BOS.

AA ILN7B4T1 MAN to SAT/OKC/BOS - ~1,049 in J

Doesn't seem to work for other UK non-LON AA departure points.

As noted previously by rossmacd - can be routed MAN-HEL-JFK-BOS and return. MAN-HEL would give 80 TPs, so 520 TPs in total. You could get 600 TP max if you went via HEL both out and back and did two transfers in the US, so something like MAN-HEL-JFK-DCA-BOS rtn.

Example prices:
OKC - 1,049
SAT - 1,049

Routings such as MAN-BOS-DFW-SAT or MAN-JFK-PHX-SAT should be possible. You can also route MAN-HEL and then on to JFK or ORD. MAN-HEL is 80 TPs. If you route via HEL you can't do a >2000 mile route in the US though due to maximum permitted mileage, so something like MAN-HEL-JFK-PHX-SAT wouldn't work.

680 is possible with MAN-HEL-xxx-JFK-DFW-SAT, where xxx is somewhere in Europe, and you can swap the DFW for basically anywhere short. The best TP/ is via HEL but then direct to JFK or ORD, at about 911 for 600TP. Here is an example of how to search for this (pinched from Beaulieu's post!):
