DCA-BUF-ORD-SEA / YVR-LAX / OAK-HNL best fare

I am planning a one way trip through the USA as mentioned above.

Best I can get it down to with direct flights is about 14c/pm. Is this as good as it gets, or are there other ways to route it for cheaper? I have spent hours trying all different combos and this seems to be the cheapest.

I am with Qantas frequent flyer, so all of those trips but one use OneWorld partners.

Any other tips? I have just started with frequent flyer so I have no points yet. Any ways I can waive baggage fees or anything like that?

You're probably better off pricing each segment separately. Hawaiian often has sales on OAK-HNL. You should also look at SFO and SJC. Southwest flies BUF - Chicago Midway, and Midway to SEA. there's not really a need to have all of these on one ticket.

The only way to get free bags would be to get credit cards for the relevant airlines, or fly Southwest.

There are more flights to get to HNL from LAX. It may be better to head to the Bay Area from Vancouver/Seattle and then head over to LA. You can get American if you want oneworld miles, or take Delta or United if price is what matters. You can also fly with Allegiant Air (with a one-way flight being around 200-220 USD, about a 150 savings compared to other carriers) but that airline does charge for everything, so be very careful in looking to the fees of that carrier.

I priced all these separately, and it would have cost about $60 more.

Also compared all cities on the west coast to HNL, and OAK was currently the cheapest, followed be SEA. Couldn't find any better from LAX.

Ok so you've answered your own question.

There's no magic.
