United / American – $98: Chicago – Austin, Texas (and vice versa). Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Earlier this week, we posted the $118 deal between Chicago and Austin on American. Now United has lowered the fare with American matching too. Availability is significantly better with United than American.

This post represent 90 consecutive days of us posting at least 1 deal a day from Chicago. While we are not yet ready to make the commitment to make Chicago our 5th daily deal city along with New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, it is trending in that direction. We want to thank you all for your continuing support.
