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. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.

Flying short-haul in the US can often be very expensive in terms of cost per mile. But right now, American, Delta and United are all discounting fares from New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Boston to Chicago and Dallas. The cheapest flights depart on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. You can use Google Flights to search for the flights you want and then complete the booking directly with the airlines or on Priceline. These discounted domestic fares are available for departures from now through next summer.
