    Here's a method that one of my housemates developed and it seems to work each time.
    1. Find the lowest price on sites such as travelocity, expedia, orbitz, or airline sites
    2. subtract taxes and extra fees from that price to get the base price
    3. mulitply that price by .6 (or take 60%, however you prefer to look at it)
    4. add the taxes, etc back in
    5. bid that price on priceline.
    6. it usually works but if not, add another $5-10 to the price and that will generally take.

    good luck

    Trying priceline right now, hopefully I can get a roundtrip for less than $200.

    Thanks for the sites.

    Price line is spectacular, I got a ticket from the DSM airport to PHL airport for only $156 with taxes and fees included!!! I highly recommend using there service. Way cheaper than yahoo, expedia, orbitz, and hotwire where the ticket was about $300.00
