We're seeing some super unadvertised domestic fares on United today. Mostly to and from American hub cities in Charlotte (CLT), Dallas (DFW), Philadelphia (PHL), and Phoenix (PHX), but a few other cities are included as well. Fares start at $110 roundtrip. There are even a few big price drops on flights to Costa Rica!
These are all big price drops, which normally don't last very long after falling this low. Secure your low fare by booking now and taking advantage of the 24-hour risk-free cancellation to think about your plans.
Travel rules and restrictions vary by route. In general, flights from/to Charlotte and Phoenix are valid on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, through April. Flights to/from Philadelphia are valid on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, through December. And flights from/to Dallas are valid for daily travel or Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, year-round. Costa Rica flights are only available on a few scattered winter travel dates.

These are Basic Economy fares, which only include a small personal item. The upgrade to a standard Economy fare on these routes varies by route, but it is mostly $30 each way to upgrade. If you need to check a bag, keep in mind that checked bag fees are the same $30 fee for both Basic Economy and standard Economy.
If you have a United credit card or elite status, some of the restrictions may not apply. For more info, check out our guide to Basic Economy for domestic travel.
As an example, I found seats departing Charlotte CLT on Monday, January 28, returning from San Jose SJO on Sunday, February 3, for $196 roundtrip.
