Return ticket costs less than a one way!

Can't believe it!  Needed a ticket from London to Calgary recently and it was significantly cheaper to book a return ticket and throw the return segment away then it was to book a one way ticket!  In this case it was 892 GBP for the one way ticket but only 731.40 GBP for the return ticket.  Guess what I did?

Not only that but my good friend Paramjit (who travels a lot) told me a little known secret.  If you are not going to use a segment of your flight (like the return portion) let the airline know and even if it is non-refundable and non-transferable they must refund the TAX portion of the flight's cost for the segment you didn't use.
