If you plan to travel to Asia next year, consider American Airlines' sale on round-trip fares from Southern California, starting with Shanghai for $669. Discounts also apply on flights to Tokyo and Beijing -- and you don't have to go in winter to take advantage of the savings.
The deal: Fly round-trip from L.A. to Shanghai for $669 and to Beijing for $798. There's also a San Diego-Beijing round-trip fare for $898. Tokyo round-trip prices are higher, $1,243 roundtrip.
When: The deal is good through 8:59 p.m. Dec. 19 Pacific time for travel between Jan. 7 and April 18. Your trip must end by April 24.
Tested: I tested flights leaving L.A. on March 13 and returning March 20. I found availability for a round-trip flight to Shanghai and Beijing at the sale prices. I like the long travel window on this deal that doesn't force you to fly to Asia in the dead of winter.
