You could take a look at Priceline.com.

They don't have the bidding anymore but they still have "Express Deals". I wasn't sure of your return, so assumed you'd stay about a week. I could see $260, although there will be some fees added on.

But carefully check all the conditions - time of day, stop or non-stop, etc. I haven't used this option personally.

You won't have a choice of airline or time of day.

Do you need one way or r/t? Do you have any AA miles? Plenty of availability for 12.5K one way. This would be a decent redemption,especially if u have elite status and u don't have to pay the $75 fee.

If that availability is on nonstop flights, then BA Avios would be better than AAdvantage miles: just 7,500 Avios each way, and no close-in award-booking fee, regardless of one's status -- or lack thereof.

You could try hidden city ticketing, works out $220 return 13-19 April or $110 one way

In case the OP hasn't heard of this hidden city source: SkipLagged.com

Read the details/warnings on the site for obvious tips (e.g., don't check luggage!).
