Get it through Newegg, they have the same deal. Amazon forces sales tax collection. :/

Tax-funded research is the only reason technology is advanced enough to have things like the Oculus rift.

Regardless of anyone's beliefs about taxes, the newegg deal is better.

Amazon has 5% cash back through Discover, so that kind of covers for (most of) the taxes.

But Newegg says 7 free games, while amazon says 6 (Newegg has Dragon Front - not sure how good it is)

I don't care either way, honestly. However, if you're being serious then lmao. I'd be more than willing to bet my life on the fact that there are PLENTY of investors, who have invested, and they would be just fine without tax funded research.

There are investors who have invested? Tell me more! Oh wait, I'm one of them. I'm also an inventor who has invented, and a scientist who has... uh... scienced. Previously I worked under government research grants but now via private money. Since you're clearly not that bright, let me put this simply. Private research is always done with a time horizon under 20 years, and usually not even over 2. No company, ever, has embarked on a massive 80 year project like what was required to develop Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity to the point where it could be practically useful. Thankfully, (various) governments *did* fund this stuff, and now you're reaping the benefits of that with everything from that SSD in your computer (which takes direct advantage of quantum tunneling) to that GPS in your phone (which would not work under simple Newtonian mechanics, which themselves were discovered under a government grant). If either were shipped via an airplane, all modern planes use calculus and functional analysis out the wazoo to ensure the safety, fuel-efficiency, and ultimately cost-efficiency of transport, both of which took centuries to develop. Your power company and UPS ground then both use combinatorial optimization techniques continuously improved upon *in the open* since the 1800s to lower your costs even further. In short, without long-period, open government research, you'd be using shittier products that are more expensive by a factor larger than taxes impose, and will pay more in operational electricity costs for the pleasure of doing so.

You're literally delusional if you think I'm going to read a shitposters post.

You're also probably in mid to late high school.

Now that we are all done fighting, the deal is dead. I expect it'll swing back around when Best Buy has another promotion.

That's blatantly false. Amazon voluntarily started collecting sales tax at the government's request.

It is in no ways a law to collect sales tax unless the business has a physical presence in the state they are selling in (like an Amazon warehouse or if their headquarters is stationed there) and if the state collects sales tax of course.

Amazon could have said no and they would still be complying with the law 100%, so long as they were still collecting the sales tax required in the states where they have a physical presence.

The discussion was on State Sales Tax collection. And whereas tax dollars might have funded some research, the government is also responsible for delaying technology for decades due to regulations, so it's a mixed bag.
