These flights are bookable on the US Airways site, though my favorite way to search for these is using the ita Matrix.

However, here is the list of available dates that I was able to find:

Dates from Las Vegas to Philadelphia for $41: January 7, 30, 31; February 4, 6, 7

Dates from Philadelphia to Las Vegas for $41: January 7, 8, 9. 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28; February 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

If you want to earn even more points, you can earn 3x points on airfare with the American Express® Gold Card or 2x rewards on the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.

Even if Las Vegas or Philadelphia isn’t your intended destination, you could then redeem British Airways avios for some short haul flights from there to other cities in the Southwest or the Northeast.

Report your success if you can actually snag any of these!
