I actually did this deal to get a HUGE discount on our tickets to Disney World this year. Since you get points to use, if you can find cheap fares, you can possibly get 2 1/2 flights FREE doing this deal which is how it worked out for me. Each flight tells you how many points it is for each leg of the trip. I was able to get 2 free flights and then have enough left over to get 1/2 of one more flight free. Saved me $750!!!!

For example, right now there is a web only deal from St Louis to Orlando for $162 but it's only 9060 points:

I can buy 1 flight for 18120 points (9060 each way). 2 flights = 36240 points and I still would have 13760 points left so I could buy another 1/2 of a flight (to Orlando) and then just pay the $162 for the return flight!!!
Go here if you want to check out this deal. Not sure how long it will last.
