Another great thing about this sale: It means Southwest Rapid Rewards redemptions are also on sale, with flights starting at 2,273 points each way.

If you want to save your cash, you could redeem less than 5,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards points for a round-trip flight between Orange County and Las Vegas, which isn't a bad deal.
