What do people actually use to buy plane tickets?

I feel like there's a million apps and websites out there to book air travel. What are people actually using? Where do you find the best deals? Are there any places with a reward system?

    Most widely used travel information search platform. Compare the cheapest flights of every airlines. Best flight tickets using month view is cool (if flexible).

    Skyscanner is great. No fees, great UI, great for flexible travel.

    Skyscanner is usually the cheapest (covers a lot of different flight/airline options) and it's simple to use! I love the option to search for "everwhere" if you're just feeling like traveling :)

    Kayak because it searches through many other websites to find the best price and has a nice automated travel planning based on your booking emails.

    Actually cheap flights & hotels

    Reveal hidden prices. They claim this - "We're better at finding cheap flights than anyone else— so good, United Airlines actually sued us for it". Skiplagged 2 [New version] They show hidden city ticketing trips in addition to what sites like Expedia, KAYAK, and Travelocity show. Taking a stop might save hundreds of dollar as @melaniepinola mentioned here - You can also track previous searches for changes in price. Available on iOS/Android.

    I prefer Obritz over Skyscanner because it offers a lot of alternative flights and cheaper. Traveling from South America to Asia is not easy due to visa requirements (mostly go through US) but with Orbitz, it give me visa-free routes and a lot more cheaper.
