1. $267 RT to Honolulu, Hawaii (HNL)
Hawaii is at the top of many travelers' bucket lists, and for good reason. But flights to Hawaii from Minneapolis are typically $800 or more roundtrip.
The cheapest fare we've ever found flying from Minneapolis to Hawaii? Just $267 roundtrip, with a quick stop on the West Coast en route to paradise. But we've also found flights on Delta's nonstop route to Honolulu as low as $301. Not bad for flights that typically cost closer to $1,000, right?
2. $289 RT to Paris, France (CDG)
This deal was found last week! Most flights from Minneapolis to Paris cost at least $800 – so this one-stop flight to France flying United easily cracks the top flight deals ever. With prices this low, how could you say no to Paris?
3. $143 RT to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands (STT)
Louder for the people in the back: your tropical winter getaway doesn't have to break the bank! Oh, and for a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands, you don't even need a passport or a COVID-19 test to fly home.
That's why this insane deal to St. Thomas in the Caribbean rocked Thrifty Traveler Premium members' worlds when we found it:
Tons of Premium members booked this deal from Minneapolis:
4. $290 RT to Madrid, Spain (MAD)
Savvy travelers know this: Get a cheap flight across the pond to Europe, and the rest of your inter-Europe travel by plane or train is cheap. And it doesn't get much cheaper than a roundtrip flight to Spain under $300!

5. $365 RT to Athens, Greece (ATH)
If you've ever looked for cheap flights to Greece, you know these fares often cost $800 – if not much more. But $365 roundtrip from Minnesota all the way to Athens? That's too good to pass up.
6. $187 RT to Santiago, Chile (SCL)
Under $200 roundtrip to South America? For a peak season (summer in Chile) flight that normally costs over $1,000?!
At more than $900 off normal prices, this was one of a two-part Delta mistake fare in November 2020 that was a major highlight for Minnesotan Premium members.
7. $332 RT to Tokyo, Japan (HND)
If visiting Tokyo is on your list, it doesn't get any cheaper than this. Normally well over $1,000 roundtrip, this record-low fare we found in early 2020 flying Air Canada from Minneapolis to Tokyo was a jaw-dropper.
8. $58 RT to Boston, Massachusetts (BOS)
Yes, you read that right.
You could get to Boston and back for less than the Uber ride to the airport. These shockingly low fares started as the byproduct of a fare war between JetBlue and Delta after JetBlue launched nonstop service between the two cities. Since then, we've seen fares drop that low a few other times.
9. $167 RT to San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU)
Coronavirus has caused airlines to do some wild things with flight pricing, like sell roundtrip flights from Minneapolis to Puerto Rico in the Caribbean and other islands for as low as $167 roundtrip during peak season.

11. $196 RT to Anchorage, Alaska (ANC)
Yes, even Delta sometimes offers insane fares on their flights out of Minneapolis. In this case, getting to Alaska nonstop dropped to record lows last year. Many Minnesota-based Premium members took advantage of this deal to Alaska to finally explore The Last Frontier, see Denali National Park, and more.
12. $92 RT to Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS)
More than half-off flights to Sin City flying Delta nonstop? Most one-way flights on budget airlines aren't even this cheap!
