    I just made a purchase on Amazon.

    Watch batteries. A pack of 5 at $2.45, including shipping and handling, from a third party merchant. The merchant is in New York and I'm in California. No sales tax was added to the order. $2.45 for 5 alkaline watch batteries, including shipping and handling! Is Amazon a great company or what!

    God Bless America.

    • GeeGee,

      Nice fine! That's a great bargain! I find sometimes that the merchants have their own websites and many times will sell the items for cheaper and in case you get stuck paying sales tax on Amazon...usually the smaller vendors don't charge tax. Just another way to save a buck. Like using Amazon as a showroom to the internet! Kinda ironic....don't ya think? - PJ

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
