Moving to the US for a year. Any moneysaving tips? or good cheap places to get a plane ticket from?

Hey all,

I will be doing a year abroad as part of my university course next year. It's gonna be hard because it will mean this site won't be as relevant for me anymore..:P Therefore, I'm looking for any good such resources for the US..or anything you think would be useful for someone just going to live there. Stuff like moneysavingexpert/hukd have really helped me spend less and still enjoy life! But really anything would help, even just direct advice would be great.

The other thing is that I need to get a flight over there, more precisely to Los Angeles..I haven't started looking yet but I think I will try lastminute and airline-network for starters. Don't know what else to look at yet though..I know google is full of websites but if anyone has had good prices for a particular one it would be very helpful!
Also whilst living there it would be nice to find a Ryanair/Easyjet-like cheap flights website so I can travel around and see different places during my holidays..so anything like that if anyone can share, thanks a lot!!

I'm not sure about getting there but once you are, Southwest Airlines are great. I wne travelling last year and used them alot to get round the states. Very cheap, eficient and you even get free drinks and nuts!!!

hotukdeals.com :P exception heh..but yea good idea I guess would apply to places like ebay, amazon etc

thx Ricky for the links, I'll check them out!

you could look at 'mobile phone' on ebay opposed to 'cell phone' as the postage should be better!
