American Airlines has “basic economy” round-trip flights from Houston (IAH/HOU) to Sacramento or San Francisco (SMF/SFO) for $170 with a connection. $85 each-way. Flights from mid-August to mid-February. Weekends available. Holiday Blackouts apply. Origin/Destination reversible.

Note: “Regular Economy” fare is available for +$50 more.

Note: “Basic Economy” fares do not include a free carry-on bag. Only a personal item (like a small-backpack) is free. Checked bags cost +$25 each-way. Seats are randomly assigned prior to boarding. If you have an AAdvantage credit-card you can avoid bag fees.

Note: Be sure to check BOTH “IAH” and “HOU” for availability.

Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on Tripadvisor to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal. Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability.

I was able to pull this up on Priceline. Screenshot taken at 8:17 PM on 07/09/18.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
