    If you have anything big you want to order, get it done. You'll save 8.25%

    They charge state tax starting at midnight tonight. I wish I had an extra 2K laying around, I'd order a camera lens and save $165.

    Amazon left California over state tax. I guess they'd rather stick it out in Texas.

    The state filed a lawsuit. Amazon settled with them and agreed to start charging sales tax.

    Amazon will still make you pay because Amazon is located in Texas and the state wants their money . . . even though the state had no part in any portion of the transaction.
