Clark Howard: Amazon pricing
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If you are somebody who always thinks they're getting the cheapest price by going to Amazon.com, that may have been true in the past. It is not as true today.
In fact, more and more traditional retail stores are matching Amazon's prices or even being routinely cheaper than Amazon.
Listen to this. The Wall Street Journal just had a story that Bed, Bath and Beyond was routinely cheaper than Amazon.com for things you're looking to buy. And you think well, I don't have to pay sales tax if I buy at Amazon.com.
Many states have reached deals with Amazon to collect sales tax. So am I bad mouthing Amazon? No way. They're a great business, but
if you always did one click to purchase on your Amazon Prime, and you think, "Hey, I'm getting a great deal." Maybe not so much anymore. It's really convenient, but not necessarily the best price. Your wallet will smile on you if you shop around.
