Happy 2014!

Please use this thread to post or to follow Economy Fares which are 'Good Deals' but where the cost per mile is more than 3-4 cents per mile, which is the usual upper limit for what is considered a true 'MR Deal'.

A few requests for posting in the thread:

-members posting their deals please post the city pairs/airport codes and pricing in the body of the post and not just in the post title as it isn't visible for those reading it on mobile devices (ETA: ...or in email alerts)

-some members may be unaware that you can subscribe to this thread and to do that you can go to "Thread Tools" at the top of the thread and click on "Subscribe to this thread".

Where are you seeing this? What airline?

On UA, the lowest available is $1028 - + $218 from your quote. On AC, its $1111 CAD, and it includes BA segment = 0 Star Alliance miles!

My fist try at this one

AA
YYZ-SJU connecting at MIA or JFK routing back through MIA or JFK
available mid January to near the end of March play around with the dates
$376 Canadian dollars
searchable on kayak books on AA

Not a good mileage run but cheaper than the other Caribbean island during the winter. Maybe a good bet for some snowbirds.

Am I the only one that is starting to feel that more and more recently the fares in this thread are actually Mileage Run material and not simply good deals between city pairs like the thread is intended for. Correct me if I am wrong but mileage earning fares under 5CPM probably shouldn't be in here?

IMHO anything that is affordable for my very low college grad budget qualifies to be in this thread. That said, most of the stuff doesn't But there are many good "deals" that are borderline MRs.
