I have been trying to come up with a reasonable segment run (segments are of particular importance to me, not the miles) for May 14-15, and completely unable to come up with anything less then $300 for 4 segment run (I need to originate in PHX and come back to PHX with a minimum of 4 segments for the whole run). If anyone knows of a good city to try to connect to through LAS or any other airport, any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

I've done the SAN-PHX-TUS round trip. The schedules are such that you can fit two of these into a day. It's also super-cheap with advance purchase. I realize that these don't originate in PHX, but if you connect to TUS from another origination then the fare is super-cheap. The flight to TUS is about 25 minutes on a bad day.
Keep in mind that the FF system does not allow two flights into the same city to be credited in one day. In my case I flew PHX-SAN in the morning for business and then did the SAN-PHX-TUS-PHX-SAN run in the evening. The segments for one of the PHX-SAN legs didn't post and it took a couple of notes to FF to get it figured out. Their solution was to manually credit one of the flights to a different day. One of my old plans was to spend a day bouncing back and forth (for a total of 8 segments) but later gave up on that given the way that FF's tracking software is written.
How about PHX-LAS-RNO-LAS-PHX?
