No.  Not blaming myself or anyone else that uses Amazon.  Freemarket is what it is, and there's no good reason for yet another tax.

You can buy all electronics from Newegg.  As a bonus, you save on the sale tax as Newegg doesn't collect it.

Thanks for that tip.  I just ordered a new printer from them,  because my old one is no longer supported.  Been shopping for the best price and Newegg had it,  hands down.  Amazon and ebay--not so much. 

Free shipping,  but I think sales taxes are applied depending on where you're ordering from.  (If they have a presence in your AO). 

I used to love Amazon and one reason is because Bezos put up a big fuss about having to collect sales taxes.  He finally caved.  Screw 'im. 

Glad to have another option.  Competition is a wonderful thing.  Thanks again for the tip.   ::thumbsup::

The problem with Amazon is that they do have distribution warehouses all over the country.  I think Newegg only has their main place.  On my last laptop, it was a $70 dollar savings.
