I live 5 minutes from one... Guess I'm spoiled where I'm at currently... I'll drop in every now and then. Lines checking out are absolutely atrocious... I did a new build not too long ago and that's where I got my mobo and CPU...with the nice discount. Think I saved around $90 when compared to amazon/newegg.

When I checked a year ago, the nearest Microcenter was about 6 hour drive for me. tongue.gif

The best we have here is Best Buy, and it's not even a big one. They don't carry TVs worth over $2,000, and only mid range computer parts.

Amazon started collecting taxes in Florida since they opened a warehouse here not long ago.

I still buy from them with my Prime subscription just because it's so easy. I personally couldn't be bother to try and hunt for deals when Amazon usually has it for the same price or cheaper & I have 2 day shipping for free with Prime. Also the fact Amazon has no hassle returns.

Amazon's positives outweigh the negatives. Their customer service is second to none, their delivery is very quick, and Amazon Prime membership is an absolute steal for $99 per year.

Amazon charging taxes is not something they have control over. If they could get away with it, they would never charge tax because it's cheaper for the consumer. It's just part of the business.

One day in the near future all online stores are going to charge sales tax. I really have no problem with this or see what the big deal is.
post #18 of 105
Part of the reason Amazon is able to maintain low pricing on certain items is the lack of sales tax. With that in mind, the next likely step is mandating sales tax on items sold by third party sellers. As of now, they're currently exempt from this. Third party sellers are not included in this upcoming tax policy.

Look at the products you buy. There are quite often Prime options sold from other sellers that are fulfilled by Amazon. You get the same speedy delivery (90% of the time) and still don't have to pay tax. That is until you file your tax return at the end of the year...

The rest of the time it is charged right there and isn't that big of an impact. I live in Tennessee, and our tax rate is 9.25% for my area, 7% of which is state tax.

I'd agree. I used to think it will make a meaningful impact on where I purchase from, but admittedly, I'm addicted to the Amazon ecosystem and in the end the taxes do not make much of a difference to me at least. With distribution facilities near me (hence the sales tax), I also benefit from Prime Now if I chose to use the service (and have before). It's amazing how they can deliver items within a 2 hour window. Also where I am at Prime delivers on both Sat and Sun (cause I'm impatient).

I fully realize that I am biased and embarrassingly, I have in several instances made purchase decisions (some bad) based on whether or not I can get it in the same day or the next day. I don't know how I survived before Echo. Maybe this is how an Apple fan feels. I need to be more sympathetic.
