Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

Yesterday, we found some great deals to Beijing from both the East and West Coast. For those who missed out then, you’re still in luck, as today you can score some great deals from Chicago (ORD) to Beijing (PEK) on American — starting at $570 for select dates.

The lowest prices are available for travel in late September and early October, and require a 10-day minimum stay. If you’re willing to spend a bit extra, you’ll have more flexibility on dates throughout the fall months.

Note that these flights must be purchased by June 25, 2015 (today).
