For those who missed PaulsTV deal to PM with Amazon. You can do the Gold Box trick on Amazon to get a cheaper price on the TV (or any item for that matter) you are looking to purchase

Thanks for the reply. I'm aware of the tax "loophole" and get "why" they charge tax. However, I reviewed every transaction over the past 4 years with Amazon and not once was I charged a dime in tax. Either from Amazon.com or Amazon marketplace or warehouse. So as an entity, Amazon.com has billed me and chosen to ship items from a warehouse in AZ to an address in AZ. Logistics, I get it. However, my understanding is that transaction should be charged tax. ie. bought from and delivered to w/i same state.
Now, as far I see it, since this TV is being shipped from IN to AZ, it should fall under the "loophole" and be tax exempt? That's where my beef is! It kinda reminds me of "Chewbacca is a wookiee. Wookiee's do not live on Endor. It does not make sense." -South Park
I'm sure I'll get over it, especially if there is a problem with the unit and an exchange or return is needed. But it's going to make me second guess before making any more purchases through Amazon. Maybe in time I'll learn to forgive.....

Made a SD acct to thank OP (Thanks OP!) for the alert to this deal. My 15yr old Mitsubishi 32" CRT crapped out a few months ago and I've been lurking around waiting for this deal or one on a Sony HX850 or HX950. This came first and I hold little hope Sony's will drop to this price point.
I had Amazon PM to Paul's namely for return reasons. Some reviews of Paul's after sale support pretty much scared me away from them. Haven't read any horror stories or had any dealing with Amazon so I went that route and it cost me, literally. Sales Tax to be exact. About $130 to be more exact! *1st time in over 4 yrs I've been charged one red cent of tax buying from or through Amazon?* And that includes plenty of transactions where items were bought, sold, and shipped from Amazon. Specifically, shipped from a warehouse in Phx and delivered to an address in Phx? I have to assume Amazon has a scheme setup via DBA or something shady like that? Anyway, I was under the impression that tax and shipping was going to be adjusted, along with the price, once I finalized the purchase. I was informed that I was wrong! and would in fact be charged sales tax. Anyone have any peculiar experiences like this with Amazon?
I don't think I'd be so upset if this happened on say... an IP Cam, like the one I bought two weeks ago for under $50. Purchased from seller in NV, but fullfilled by Amazon & shipped free + tax free from whse in downtown Phx to an address in Phx. But for the first over 1K, big ticket item I've bought from them they stick me with sales tax; I gotta tell ya, I'm a little butt hurt over the whole thing! Especially b/c tracking shows the TV left from Indianapolis, IN yesterday. I don't know what to make of it, but I can for sure say that I have sour taste when I say Amazon now.
Any thoughts if I have a snowballs chance of getting this credited back to my account? I haven't tried yet hoping a resident SD'er might have some advice?
TIA and Thanks again to OP!

There is an alternative. It's Consumer Reports' Best Buy if paying for a Panny is too much for your budget.
