American Airlines and Southwest have round-trip flights from Austin and San Antonio (AUS, SAT) to Miami, Los Angeles, Nashville, or Phoenix (MIA, LAX, BNA, PHX) for $139-$171, NONSTOP. Flights August to November. Departures on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Extended weekends available. Origin/Destination reversible. No Thanksgiving dates.

  • Note: Southwest is matching on some of these routes but to get the discount requires jumping through a few annoying hoops. First, you can only see the fare in their slow and buggy Southwest (mobile phone) App. Second, you have to use code “BDAY”. 
  • Phoenix is the most expensive fare in this list at $171. All other destinations are about $139-ish.

A Carry-on bag and also a personal item is allowed for free on American. You can avoid paying for seat selection by accepting the randomly assigned seat at the gate.

If you use the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite Mastercard® with AA flights, you get: a 25% inflight food and beverage discount, a $125 AA flight discount after you spend $20,000 or more in purchases during your card year, and your first checked bag is free on domestic American Airlines flights for you and up to four companions traveling on the same reservation.

Do a search on Tripadvisor and GetYourGuide to find guides, tours, attractions, and cool things to do. I use both of those sites to help me plan my own day-to-day itinerary while on vacation.

Here are some other offers that we think are worth mentioning. List updated 06/12/2024.

  • Airfare/Hotel coupons on Hopper: (updated daily-ish) Hopper always has discount coupons on their main page. $30 off Air Europa flights, $50 off Air New Zealand flights, $100 off select Fiji Airways flights, $50 off Royal Air Maroc flights, $50 off Air India flights, $125 off Air New Zealand flights from Now into November, and more. The full list is on Hopper’s website. Keep in mind that Hopper is an OTA, so don’t expect them to honor the free 24-hour cancellation period, or to have the lowest base fare price. Hopper will try to up-sell you on a lot of extras like “cancel for any reason” policies, if you decide to use Hopper we advise that you decline all of those extras.
  • It is common to find Southwest and Alaska Airlines gift-cards for sale at a discount of about -$50 to -$20 off the redeemable value at Costco and Sam’s Club. Before you finalize your booking on either of these airlines, you should check to see if you can save more money by using a gift card.
