United and Delta are offering round-trip flights from Austin (AUS) to Los Angeles (LAX) for $177, NONSTOP. Flights are available most days of the week in August, including weekends. Fare is reversible. See the Flight Details section of this post for example booking dates.

To save the most money, be sure to make use of the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post.

Note: OTAs such as Orbitz and Priceline allow free cancellation before 10 PM CST the day after purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy allows you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. After the grace period, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.

United, Delta, JetBlue and Virgin America offer free cancellation within the next 24-hours after purchase while American allows you to “Hold” a ticket for 24-hours. Keep in mind that once you pay for a ticket on you can’t cancel it without a change fee or penalty, even if was purchased less than 24-hours ago.

The Department of Transportation doesn’t enforce 24-hour free cancellation on tickets less than 7-days away from departure, so some airlines and OTAs will allow it while some will not. 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.

I was able to pull this fare up on Priceline, and it should be available to most other booking sites such as Orbitz and Travelocity. (Example booking screenshot below)
