United has “basic economy” round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to Denver (DEN) for $49 or San Francisco (SFO) for $79, NONSTOP. $25-$40 each way. Flights from October to January. No Sunday returns.
“Basic economy” fares do not include a free carry-on bag. Only a personal item (like a small-backpack) is free. Checked bags cost +$25. No seat selection they will be randomly assigned prior to boarding. If you have the United MileagePlus credit-card, use the “free checked bag” perk.

I was able to pull this fare up on Priceline. Screenshot taken at 8:42 PM on 10/13/17.
Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
