have you tried hipmunk? http://www.hipmunk.com/ it isn’t exactly discount, but it shows all of the rates and prices of a bunch of airlines (southwest isn’t included).

With Kayak, you can sign up for a price alert.  It’ll send you regular emails about prices so you know when a flight has gone up, or suddenly dropped.

I’m a fan of Bing Travel. They have a price predictor that has proved to be accurate in my experiences. Also, supposedly it is best to search for/book flights on Tuesday afternoons and the prices usually go up by Thursday – this has also proven to be true in my experiences.

Kayak all the way! Fiance and I have saved hundreds (probably thousands) of dollars from really careful airline shopping, much of it aided by Kayak’s daily price alerts. He is stationed in the middle of nowhere so it can be really expensive. The price alerts and flexible dates help so much! If we’re careful and patient enough we can usually get away with only slightly soul crushingly expensive airfare these days. 🙂
