If you are looking for an inexpensive fall getaway (or even a mileage run for elite status if you are into that sort of thing), a great airfare popped up today on The Flight Deal for both United and American Airlines from Houston to Los Angeles (also works in reverse). Right now you can book that route starting at just $107 round trip, which is much lower than normal. For those curious, that is 3.8 cents per elite qualifying mile.
Availability is limited and you will want to use a flexible date calendar to quickly spot the cheapest dates to fly.
Like with any good airfare sale, you often come out better by using cash or fixed value points instead of turning to using miles since that way you keep cash in your pocket, earn miles, and get to take advantage of the lower than normal sale.
While we won’t be getting on this particular sale, quickly pouncing on discount airfare like this when they are available is a big part of my family’s budget travel strategy!
