To respond to these kinds of posts, many regulars and veteran SDer's try to show how good or bad of a deal is, not only based on price, but also the reseller's rating. How does one do that? There are many here that have already established which places are best to buy at and which places to avoid.
But for unknown merchant sites, there is one, and possibly only one solution to knowing if this place is thumbs up or thumbs down: Reseller Ratings [resellerratings.com]
This site's primary purpose is to show potential customers other user's experience with merchant sites. This is not a site in which is based upon 1 or 2 users but upon tens of thousands.
*If a site has a Reseller Ratings of 2.0 (out of 10) based on 150 reviews, common sense is to stay away no matter how "hot" the price is.
*If a site has a Reseller Ratings of 9.9 (out of 10) based on 100,000 reviews, then this is at least one site that will guarantee positive business.
I am not here to tell you where you should buy your products.
I am here to recommend that OPs and other people should do research on various merchant sites without posting a "deal" blindly based on price. Reseller Ratings is a very valuable resource to check out. And in the end, the final choice is yours.
