- Roundtrip Airfare Between San Francisco and Houston $30
Each-way airfare of $15 after taxes between Houston (IAH) and San Francisco (SFO) airports.
Limited availability, and seats are filling up fast.
To help find the deals, use Google Flights, select one-way fare, then click the starting date to see a calendar of prices.
When you select a starting date, you can choose a return date.
At the time of this post, there were several $14 one-way airfare between Houston and San Francisco throughout the month of December, all on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
Beware that Frontier has very high fees for checked baggage and carry-on baggage.
If you check one bag at the gate and carry-on another bag, they would count that as 2 bags, and you could be charged around $45 to as much $80 each-way.
These are horrendously high fees for not just handing your checked luggage, but for bringing a bag onto the plane with you.

- Airfare Sale Between Texas and Boston: $54 each way (expired)
Worth mentioning again today, because today is the last day to do this deal.
You can get $54 each-way airfare between Boston and one of 3 Texas cities (Austin, Houston, and Dallas).
Fares are valid either way, and are based on one-way $54 airfare (so it can be $108 roundtrip total).
If you can get $108 roundtrip, that is about $200 less than normal price.
Even if your schedule and seating availability only lets you do $54 for one leg of your trip, and you pay full airfare for the other leg, a $200 roundtrip airfare would still be about $100 less than normal price.
Valid only for flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
You must book your flight by 11:59pm Eastern Time today.
Valid for travel between August 4 and November 20, and limited seats are available at this price.
At $54 each-way, these are the cheapest airfare we have ever seen between Boston and Texas cities.
Normal prices are $110 to $180 each-way with a 3 month advance purchase, and prices often rise to $200 to $280 each-way for 1 month advance purchase.
Other airlines, such as United, changed their airfares to match JetBlue's $54 each-way prices.
Run flight comparisons on Kayak.com, Google Flights, and directly on the airlines' websites.
