A great site for cheap flights is TravelGam. It shows the cheapest weekend to visit in an eight-month period.

Johnny Jet recently got to attend the most exclusive lounge at LAX this week. It's $4,500 a year membership, plus $2,700 every time you use it. You get separate security, you have a private room, much like a hotel room, and you're even driven to the airplane for a backdoor entrance.

App of the week - FairFetch.com. It's an app for iOS and Android to help you find a good cheap fare. Input where, when and the price you want to pay. They'll then find the fare and book you. But once it's booked, there's no refund. If they can't find it, then you can try again at another price point. So it's like Priceline. It's also crowd worked.
