[12/27/2015 @ 11:11 AM] Deal is back, but only for January. When this was featured last month, it was available out into May.
[01/21/2016 @ 11:26 PM] Old post cleanup. Removing from deal list.
The details in this post were valid at the time of the last update (see time-stamp above). Given enough time, prices and availability will change.
American and Alaska Airlines have round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to Seattle (SEA) for $185, NONSTOP. Flights TUE/WED/SAT in January. Fare is reversible. Carrier will depend on dates selected. See the Flight Details section of this post for example booking dates.
Note: It’s possible to book this as two separate one-ways.
Orbitz and CheapTickets have a search tool that looks for flights 3-days before and after the dates you’ve selected, you should use it if you have a general idea of when you want to travel, but want to see other prices for other dates close to the ones you’ve selected.
To save the most money, be sure to apply the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post. Booking your trip as a flight + hotel package will probably save you more money than booking each separately. Package deals on Travelocity and Priceline tend to be better than what are offered directly by the airline, so be sure to compare them before booking.
Note: OTAs such as Orbitz and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty before 10 PM central time the day 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 10 PM the next day, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty. On Orbitz, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancel” next to the price of the ticket.
Most airlines also offer 24-hour free cancellation with varying policies. For example American Airlines allows you to “Hold” a ticket before payment for 24-hours but once you pay for it you can’t cancel without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
