Lucky. Arizona people will pay 6% on sale taxes. Here in California, Amazon charges about 13% in taxes (no joke). That's a lot! I am not sure if that only applies in my city or all California. All I can say is that I have bought less stuff from Amazon since they began collecting taxes.


Damn you pay a lot, its most likely your city since I am only paying 8.75% in tax in CA.

The base tax rate in CA is 7.25%. There are no local taxes higher than 2.5% on top of that.

sigh,

I didn't see this coming, I don't think I will renew my Amazon Prime or maybe think about it.

Who am I kidding, I'll still get it.

Well it was only a matter of time. I think New York was the first state to fall to the Amazon tax rule and when I saw that I knew it was only the beginning of the end for the rest of us (CA started last month).

If enough people had reported online purchases on their tax returns we wouldn't have had to come to this. The kicker is that they use an average blend rate/amount for taxes which amounted to just $50 for me on last year's tax return. I know I saved a whole lot more than $50 on Amazon tax last year. So in a way we all did this to ourselves by failing to report online purchases.

Now playing:

Funny thing is, I pay less than Texas sales tax. But San Diego is broke, I think.

Noooo this stinks, I live in Arizona

I had a feeling this was coming, oh well at least they won't start charging taxes until after the Holiday season is over and its only 6.6% so it really is not that bad

0% sales tax state, yay. But we pay property tax out the butt. And they are trying to put a tax on selling your home, as if paying the tax on it yearly wasn't enough.

Amazon could charge 20% tax and I'd shop there over GameStop and their PUR points.

Would I pay a 10% premium for customer service? Sure. I do it all the time for other things. Sorry you don't appreciate good customer service. :roll:

You can do whatever you want though.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Well at 20% higher they'd probably still be cheaper than gamestop, so, you know...

And I agree.

i have an amazon credit card that accumulates over $25 in points every month, triple points for amazon purchases and it all adds up. Just pay the full amount every month so you don't get thrown into debt.

Completely agree. Haven't bought anything at GS since discovering this. Keep everything at BB or Amazon. It would take a lot to make me go back to using GS.

I could be wrong, but I don't think amazon carries the 3DS XL (third party sellers fulfilled by amazon do, but amazon and nintendo are having problems or something). If that is the case, then AWD will get the occasional trade-in, but there won't be many (or any) damaged packaging items to sell on AWD.

Workin on it

the 3DS XL has been up multiple times. I actually grabbed one casually a week or 2 ago. They have had more blue/blacks then reds. Also they are appearing more regularly every week now. They are about as rare as the purple 3ds. You just have to keep your eyes peeled. I visit the warehouse several times a day every time I'm on the computer.

The warehouse will get Wii-Us in, etc...
