Low CPM routing from SEA including SFO/LAX-DFW

Looking for some good routings from SEA that include legs between either SFO or LAX and DFW for the current DEQM promo going on (must incl same city on outbound and return). Looked at JFK and BOS and they priced out around $800.

The catch is that I only have 1 weekend on which to travel. I can leave on Feb 18th early evening or 19th all day but have to be back on the 20th. Anyone know of a good fare that will hit the promo cities for a good bit less than $500?

The key to taking advantage of the system is you have to be flexible and do what and go where the airlines want you to go.

If you are going to restrict yourself to a single weekend and required stops, then you will just have to keep checking and re-checking for when the fares might go low enough to satisfy you.

I believe this would not qualify for the DEQM promo since it doesn't include a qualifying round-trip, but rather a LAX-DFW, DFW-SFO "open-jaw."

From the T&C:
A round trip is defined as two one-way trips booked in a single reservation under one ticket number. To qualify, the round trip must depart from and return to the same city or co-terminal.

Thanks for suggestion. Unfortunately, I have to return through LAX if I'm routing through there on the outbound. Great fare that you found though!

Looks like I'm going to skip that weekend's possible trip. I was looking at my planned travel and wanting to ensure I requal'd for EXP. But, with some recently added trips it looks like I'll make it without needing this extra trip.
