United has round-trip flights from Houston (IAH) to Shanghai (PVG) for $399 with a connection. Flights from mid-March to mid-May. 3-day minimum stay required. No weekend departures. A Tourist Visa is Required for American Citizens.

Note: The Chinese Consulate is in Houston (Montrose), and you can apply and pick up your visa in person. When we did it, it took about 25-minutes, and the turn-around was 3-days.

Note: There is also visa free 72-hour transit, if you plan on only using China as a connection to elsewhere.

I was able to pull this up on Priceline. Screenshot taken when this post was initially created. See timestamps at the top of this post.

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.
