...and manufacturers don't usually see the need to pass the savings back to the consumer.
Well with the state of the economy, they BETTER start passing on the savings or people will be even less inclined to buy their products.
I bought this set from HTS. They have it for $19.99. (It's out of stock right now) On top of that I used the code MDCREW and got about 20% off my order. It ended up costing me $15.99 before tax/shipping. Although my order was large, so the savings actually wiped out the tax and shipping AND I save an additional $10 off retail!
Okay, I'm no math expert, but how do you figure you saved an additional $10 off retail? It dropped to $16 using your code versus just below $22 at retail - that's not even $6 in savings and you still had to pay tax. Did you check shipping price pre and post adding this to your basket? I believe HTS prices shipping based on your dollar total (or maybe I'm thinking of EE), so I'd bet you still had an upcharge of some kind. It's still a better price than retail I'm sure.
