farecast.com - for airline tickets (it's like Kayak.com but it tells you when to buy)

priceline.com - for hotels. You can do name your own price and get hotels for 1/3 of the price. I've stayed at a Hilton and Westin resort for $65

I like Product reviews and prices, software downloads, and tech news - CNET for electronic product reviews and comparisons. Yesterday I used it to find out if there was a reason to buy an expensive hdmi cable or a cheap one.

Now you tell me. I ordered a couple online for about 1/5 the price at big box retail stores. I hope I made the right choice. So what did you find out - are the cheap ones good?

Just want to 2nd the www.farecast.com, but also note it is now part of Bing.

It is the, THE, did I say, "THE", most accurate flight finder out there. Whatever it says the price is, you can "bookit" for that price.

Great site.
