Fly nonstop to Vegas from Denver, LA and Minneapolis for as low as $38 round-trip – The Points Guy

Flights to Las Vegas are available at big discounts right now for summer travel, and some routes are available for less than $100 round-trip.

Fare sales to Vegas have been rare lately, so if you’ve been considering a long weekend with your significant other or even a longer vacation with the family this summer, this is a good time to book it. Between the endless entertainment options, incredible dining experiences and fantastic things to do off the Strip — like visiting the Hoover Dam — Vegas is a winning destination for any traveler.

The travel window for this sale is from April to August of this year. It’s limited to nonstop flights from Denver, Los Angeles and Minneapolis. You may be able to find discounted flights between August and November as well.

This deal involves economy fares. With Alaska Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines, you get to bring a free carry-on bag. Frontier Airlines and United Airlines customers only get to bring a personal item on board. If you book a Frontier fare, keep in mind you’ll pay around $120 round-trip to check a bag.

You can upgrade on United for $30 to $87 each way to get a free carry-on, free seat selection and the ability to change your itinerary without penalty. As always, the best way to get the very best savings is to pack light.

Sample flights

Frontier has great availability in May for nonstop flights out of Denver International Airport (DEN) to Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) in Vegas for just $43 round-trip.

Yes, you’ll have to pay Frontier’s high fees to bring a carry-on on board or check a bag, but it’s still a really good price.


The same route is even cheaper in June, at only $38 round-trip.


What about Minneapolis? Well, we found good availability on Delta for discounted flights from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) to Vegas in May for only $139 round-trip.


We had the same success in June, finding nonstops out of Minneapolis on Delta for just $139 round-trip. Also, remember that Delta economy tickets come with a free carry-on.


Alaska has round-trip fares from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Las Vegas in June for $83. That’s a nice discount from normal prices for that route. We found good availability in June out of LA for these sale fares.


American has discounted flights in June from LA to Las Vegas as well. They are a bit more expensive than Alaska’s fares, but $91 is still a good price.
