Way To Search For Cheap AA Flights Out Of CLT? (Status runs)

First time poster here, is there an app or website where I can search for cheap flights out of CLT? I want to do a couple mileage/segment runs to retain Gold, and I want to take my son on his first flight somewhere cheap as well. I have just been entering destination airport codes on the AA app to look at prices but figured there's got to be a better way?

Google Flights. Just put in your desired dates and leaving from CLT. However, the fares that you will see on the map will likely be BE. Once you pull the fare up you will need to change it to Main Cabin for the Main Cabin fare. However, if you need strictly miles/segments and not EQDs then BE might work for you if you're willing to accept the restrictions.

Be aware that Basic economy flights only earn half the miles and segments than Main Cabin flights so usually Basic economy will not be worth it, especially if you are looking to qualify on segments.

As others have mentioned google flights is great as is ITA Matrix; however (albeit relative), cheap flights on AA out of CLT are hard to come by!

Actually, consider leaving from a nearby airport if possible, Greenville Spartanburg may be a lot cheaper even if it ends up connecting in CLT anyway.
