Re: Best Buy is so crappy...
NY Residents are now charged and have been charged sales tax on Amazon since June of 2008 or 09. Heres the key if you want to avoid sales tax on there. Dont 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 doesnt. 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 Im 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.
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.
