What is a cheap same-day roundtrip from NYC for earning miles?

I'm looking for a way to gain a few urgently needed SA status miles through a very cheap (ideally <$100, but up to $200 would be ok) round trip originating in NYC and vicinity (incl. Newark).

I'm also open for a one-way deal, as long as it is at least 550 miles long, and there's some cheap way to return within a total of 24hrs (e.g. take a bus or a train back...)

Many thanks in advance!

Maybe you might wanna look at milesbuzz regarding this issue? There are loads of promotions there as well. My favorite thread is the premium fares one.

You're going to struggle to find any *A fares <$100 return out of NYC. Sub-$200 there likely to be more options, but no guarantees.

I'd look at routes where there is healthy competition - like Florida, Boston and Puerto Rico - and hope for the best.

I think you can typically find a flight on US from LGA-BUF-LGA for less than $200, if you travel on a Saturday and book 14-21 days out.

This thread has been cross-posted, which is against the FT rules. I am therefore closing down this version.
