Not a sale, just normal DL domestic coach pricing which varies in 500 mile increments. When I did a survey a few months, I found 10 different levels below 12.5K. Many of the lower ones below were only available on non-stop routings. It looks like they've changed up the fare codes to start with YSV now. The ones below pretty much all had a 3 week advance purchase requirement, but I'm not seeing that requirement in the YSV coded fares.

YSMK050 5K
YSMS055 5.5K
YSMK060 6.0K
YSMS070 7.0K
YSMK075 7.5K
YSMS080 8K
YSMS095 9.5K
YSMS100/YSMK100/YSM100 10K
YSMS110 11K
YSMS115 11.5K

Additionally there were a number of awards between 12.5K and 17.5K. The old "5 tier" awards were still around as well at the 12.5K, 17.5K, 20K, 25K, and 32.5K levels.

YSM125 12.5K
YSLS130 13K
YSLS135 13.5K
YSLS145 14.5K
YSLS150 15K
YSLS155 15.5K
YSL175 17.5K
YSD200 20K
YSS250 25K
YSK325 32.5K

These are the sub-12.5K levels I'm seeing today and some sample routes

YSV055 5.5K SFO-LAX
YSV060 6.0K SEA-SFO
YSV085 8.5K DTW-MIA
YSV090 9.0K ATL-YVR
YSV095 9.5K SLC-DFW
YSV100 10.0K SLC-ORD
YSV110 11.0K SEA-DFW
YSV120 12.0K PDX-ATL

On some routes, the lowest level starts above 12.5K. For example, not seeing anything lower than a 14.5K one-way award on DTW-SFO. The goofy part is that you can do hidden city and book DTW-SFO-SEA one-way awards for 12.0K. For return, you could do SFO-DTW-STL for 9.5K.
