Good place to buy airline tickets cheaper than normal, tips tricks?

REIUSA used Ask the Experts™
Anyone have some good tips on how to get airfare cheaper than normal? I am flying from around Cincinnati to Las Vegas.

About the only way I know to get a cheaper price is by using priceline and bidding but I have never tried it before. Anyone have experience bidding like that? The site says you leave between 6am and 10pm but I don't like the idea of not knowing when you leave and come back, but if I can really save 40% or more it might be worth it.

Are there good sites or times to buy or ways to get a discount on airfare? I am leaving around the end of the year.
