Continental/United just loaded a ton of dirt cheap fares to/from Chicago and San Francisco, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, San Jose, Portland, Seattle, San Diego, Phoenix, Ontario and Salt Lake City.

For example, Chicago to San Francisco from August through November has a base roundtrip fare of $120 and comes to a whopping $141 total roundtrip. While a lot of peak days (and Fridays) are blocked out, there are still major values to be had – especially since those fares are routinely over $300.

This even overlaps with the Chicago-San Fran/Los Angeles double EQM promo that is good until August 31, 2011.

You can book on or, but I used -> Flights -> Flexible dates from August-January to find the cheapest fares. Feel free to report your success in the comments! flexible flight search results

$141 final roundtrip price including taxes/fees. Pretty good for summer travel!

    One of the things I like best about this blog is the price war tips. Last time I got RT’s from DCA to PHX and to SAN for $140 each on CO.

    Nice feature- no one else has it !
