Re: Best Buy is so crappy...

Dude relax. It was a sarcastic snipe. I’m sure this money grubbing state of NY could tax the air we breath if they could and I’m sure the asshats in Albany feel cheated that millions and millions of dollars in tax revenue are being lost by people who buy items online as opposed to brick and mortar stores. No, I don’t feel like I’m actually cheating this thieving state, and even if I did I could careless. Fuck them!

For the future of our nation, we must unite and vote out the terrorist known as Hussein Obama. Come November 6 2012 we must remove the socialist pig out of office and get our country back on the RIGHT track.

Just remember that when the state has to cut services you need due to LACK OF MONEY.

I don't use any service from this stupid state. Besides we already pay some of the highest taxes in the country. If the asshats in charge really care about NY State, let them take a pay cut from their over inflated salaries. And living in Upstate NY, it’s not like tax money that comes from this area even stays here. It all gets funneled down to that rat hole called New York City. Personally, I get a lot of joy when I buy items online knowing I’m not helping to fund this state and the leaches that run it. Again, fuck them, fuck them to hell!

I live in Massachusetts and they are the most corrupt state in the union. They got money for all of the waste in beacon hill (overpriced and under qualified consultants, throwing money at failing schools, and various other forms of waste) but there is no money left to fix the roads (our roads are worse than those in a third world country).

My most recent MacBook Pro was bought tax-free at a Best Buy in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

My sentiments exactly, except you have to change the money grubbing state from NY to California. (Amazon now collects state tax) I have to look for a site that does not charge tax. Any ideas?

NY Residents are now charged and have been charged sales tax on Amazon since June of 2008 or 09. Here’s the key if you want to avoid sales tax on there. Don’t buy items from Amazon directly, but rather the third party retailers that use the Amazon Marketplace Network, or whatever they call it. For example, last month when I ordered my Sony Xperia tablet, I bought it and the accessories I wanted from a third party retailer on Amazon called ‘Video & Audio Center’. They are based out of California, so CA residents would get charged sales tax, but everyone else doesn’t. Just like eBay, makes sure you look at the seller ratings, and read a few comments from other buyers to make sure your buying from a reputable seller.

Before I order anything on Amazon, I always look at the prices of the item I’m interested in from all the sellers on their network and look at the final price including shipping, if there is any, and then see if the reseller charges tax in NY. I forgot what I bought last year, Amazon themselves was changing $5 below MSRP, a third party was charging $5 above MSRP, but there was no tax on the third party so I paid the extra $10 for the item but saved I think $40 or $50 in tax.

And yes, NY and CA are probably the worst two states in the union as far as this stuff goes. Just look at gas prices, California is always the highest, but NY isn't far behind.

The problem with eBay is now its hit and miss to leave neg feedback on sellers and buyers.

You sir are a patriot.

Perhaps states which gripe about losing sales tax revenue to online purchases should rethink their tax structure so that offline taxable purchases are once again a competitive option.
