So Amazon taxes Texas now?
I just went to pre order Outland on Blu Ray, and all of a sudden there is a $1.15 sales tax attached. WFT happened?
If this keeps up and I'm gonna start ordering from Deep Discount, they usually have a better price anyway, plus free shipping on orders $15 or more.HT gear: JVC RS46 3D projector with 147in Hi Power screen, Klipsch RF-7 based 9.1 system, Emotiva XPA5 5 channel amp, Pioneer 1120 reciever, Oppo BDP-95(region free), Xbox 360, Toshiba XA2

Deep Discount has the slowest shipping in the known universe, but the prices are usually pretty good.
Amazon is taxing in Texas because they have operations within the state and are required to collect taxes now, as Texas had a suit against them.Lucifer! We are here for your praise, evil one.

I've had mostly good experiences whenever I've shopped at DeepDiscount. It's just when stuff gets backordered is when they suck big time. They must not have too many suppliers? I remember waiting over a month for some of my Blu-ray orders to go in stock, never happened, ended up canceling and buying from somewhere else.Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.
We're breeding a race of moral midgets.

Just got Outland and Blade 2 from DD today, on release day. Not too shabby, I was worried as I'd ordered from them a LONG time ago back when DVD was young, it took them over a month to ship the movie, when it finally arrived, it was the wrong movie.
But as long as they can keep this up, bu-bye Amazon.HT gear: JVC RS46 3D projector with 147in Hi Power screen, Klipsch RF-7 based 9.1 system, Emotiva XPA5 5 channel amp, Pioneer 1120 reciever, Oppo BDP-95(region free), Xbox 360, Toshiba XA2

The even tax Kindle purchases. Which is a shame. I visited some family in Alabama, and used my Prime membership without having to pay tax, it was nice. Then back in Texas I wanted to buy a game from Amazon, but ended up buying it from NewEgg to avoid tax.

Yeah just like anywhere else really, they are required to charge for tax now, I live in Pennsylvania and its the same thing, but they are still cheaper than anywhere else, I havent used Deep Discount in forever because they havent been cheaper than Amazon, what titles are you purchasing that make a difference in price? Every time I've gone to look at Deep Discount I just laugh at what they are charging for what I want to buy, Amazon or Walmart every time pretty much, Deep Discount used to be the place I ordered everything from, but they just havent been able to keep up when it comes to prices and shipping, especially if you have Amazon Prime

I'm a Texan myself, and nowadays, I just ask different stores to price-match Amazon, since they'll be charging tax anyway.

AZ will start having Amazon tax everything when the new year starts. I don't mind. I've been buying more lately from Best Buy anyways, but this won't stop me from ordering things that I don't want to travel to the store for...which is just about everything except when Best Buy has sales, plus they price match.
And the Amazon video service gets a little usage so I will probably keep my Prime membership.
