2 minor "deals".
One is the "same day of arrival" ticket, like the one in SLC, where you get a free ticket on the day you fly in (so get there early), but it's only good if you fly in on Delta. I knew about it a couple of years ago so I asked again, but it's virtually impossible to find anything on their site, and getting Steamboat to respond is like pulling teeth. Call and / or write often.
The second is using AMEX vouchers (8,000 points / day) I think, but there's a lot of blackout dates, including the days I'll be there.
