These trips can start or end in PDX/LAX so just look for some ex LAX flights and not spend the money on positioniong

How are you all booking this? I can't get Expedia/Priceline/Orbitz to price it out properly

Nevermind, finally gone one to book on Priceline.

You can slide in LAS as well off the version the OP posted (https://goo.gl/flights/Yogz). It is 414 miles LAS to SFO, which gets the 500 mile min. In case you're feeling particularly embolden. Just booked this. If there are flight gods they will improve the benefits to MVPG members on VX flights before then. GGUs allowed and I'll be ecstatic (not expected, but one can dream).

Needed to go to SAN this fall, but couldn't resist. Now I need to ponder how to get there from LAX...

PDX-SFO-JFK-LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX for $161

Hopefully Alaska will offer some MVP benefits on VX by then. At least a checked bag? Better seats?

This.

The fare is also available as a one-way at about $71, so if you really do want to position to PDX to start, you can do it for $71 via JFK.

For anyone interested in ex-LAX but frustrated with the lack of examples, here's one for $186.
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...8,BOSLAX0VX363

$186/11,476 miles = 1.6 cpm

Try this: https://travel.google.com/booking/fl...gl=US&curr=USD

Also, anyone having issues with 24hr cancels? The spotty website/app wants me to call, but I'll wait for others to book first.

I booked on Priceline and it was easy to cancel my first booking and re-book with the FLL routing....way more efficient of a MR for nearly the same amount of miles.
