are the cheapest. You have to compete to sell there
Thank you Adam Smith,
I am now enlightened in the principles of basic macro economics.
My point is this: Lets take a common item, a tie rod end here, Moog part #: ES3546
has it for $61.99
Rock Auto has it for $30.79, and $8.87 shipping
So even using the 30% off coupon at Advance, Im still going to pay $45-50 once tax is factored in. At Rockauto
, I get the part to my door for for less than $40. Now for one piece, its not a big issue, but for a pair, thats a $25-30 difference. Mind you, this is just a small example on one common part, but the Advance mark-up is 100% over Rockauto.
Dont get me wrong, I like Advance, and there numerous ways to use the coupon code to your advantage, but its not always a good deal to use the coupon code from Advance vice buying outright from Amazon or Rockauto.
Now mind you, I did just buy this a couple of weeks ago:
for $29.67 after the 30% coupon. This is much cheaper than i could get it elsewhere and a fabulous deal.
