We'll keep this one short and sweet: The best way to nab bargain-basement prices on airfares is to follow the major airlines on Twitter—now!—to find out what last-minute Cyber Monday deals they are offering.

Follow these airlines on Twitter throughout Cyber Monday—and beyond!—to get up-to-the-minute info on good deals. Happy travels!

Believe it or not, Pinterest just got more addicting. Not only can you find photos, boards, and graphics for everything from knitting projects and classic recipes to travel quotes and holiday decorations, but now you can actually map out your dream trips and travel bucket list adventures.

According to this recent article by Skift, Pinterest is also planning to bridge the gap between fantasizing about and planning your vacations to being able to book them, but that's still to come.
