United has “basic economy” round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to Santa Barbara (SBA) for $146 with a connection. $73 each-way. Flights April 2018 to February 2019 with Holiday blackouts. Origin/Destination reversible. There are fewer return flights than departing flights at this price.

Note: Availability to Palm Springs is scattered and sparse, basically just one-ways from June to October. You may want to book the return flight with miles/points to get a better time/date slot. Santa Barbara and Hartford have more better availability.

Note: “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 each-way. Seat selection will be randomly assigned prior to boarding. You can avoid bag fees if you have a MileagePlus credit card with the “1st free bag” perk.

I was able to pull this fare up on Priceline. Screenshot taken at 2:42 PM on 03/29/18.

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.
