    Check prices on round trip tickets also. Many times a round trip ticket actually costs LESS than a one-way. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif It's just one more way that airlines bilk the unsuspecting. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif If the round trip is cheaper, then book it and then "miss" the return flight. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I usually do it this way, look online for the cheapest flight through say Expedia(the one I usually go to cause I remember it off the top of my head). Then just go to the airlines site and book the same exact flight through them. Cuts out the websites fees. Has worked for me last time I flew two times I flew from Philly to Lousianna and when she flew from Louisianna to Philly.

    One word: E-file! Had the money in my bank 5 days after I filed. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif It also helps to file early so your stuff doesn't get caught up in the last minute deluge that hits the IRS as April 15 nears... /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Yeah, E-file or Tele-File rocks! Did everything over the phone, took about 20 minutes total, and had the money in a week. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
