The details on this page were accurate when this post was last updated (see time-stamp). Deals are usually valid 24 to 72 hours after posting, but can expire at any time.

Update: We’re starting to see this fare show up on SkyScanner and Momondo, so there’s a good chance it’s not a glitch. Be careful about booking on sites that don’t offer a 24-hour free cancellation period. A lot of the sites on SkyScanner and Momondo don’t seem to follow the Department of Transporation guidelines on that matter.
United and American Airlines have flights on CheapOAir from Austin (AUS) to Sao Paulo, Brazil (SAO) for $475-$550 with a connection. Flights February until at least May.
Note: This doesn’t seem to price correctly on Google Flights but it does show up on the calendar. It will switch to $1320 on Google when you try to book it though.
Note: The last time we saw Sao Paulo for this price was on October 22, 2015.

Note: You should wait for your full confirmation code from the airline and also wait a full week after that before making any solid hotel accommodations. In short, make sure the airline has you in their system. A confirmation from CheapOAir is not good enough, you need the airline to provide a PNR, (the six character identifier that looks like this “TBQXYZ”). It may take about 8-hours for that to show up after booking. But if it takes longer, then there is probably a good chance that the ticket will not be honored, and your money will be refunded.

Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on Tripadvisor to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal. Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability.

I was able to pull this fare up on CheapOAir. Screenshot taken when this post was initially created. See timestamps at the top of this post.

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.
