You would assume they would be more efficient and would pass the saving on to you.
I would assume they don't pass those savings onto YOU, the buyer, because they are passing them onto US, your favorite fansites.
Seriously, sales commissions at EE can reach up to 15%
if you send them enough volume. It's easily one of the best commission sponsorship deals out there for fansites to help pay down thier costs.
So, think of it this way - if you're buying a case from EE, you may be spending $10 more than buying from BBTS, but $10-20 of your purchase (depending on our monthly volume) is coming back here to help us pay the bills, send people to cover shows, and offer up the occasional kick-ass give-away.
