Thanks for all the hard work X - its nice to see some up to date, "Hard data" for price comparissons. I was reading that Deb over there at Qblog forums actually went for concentrated ALL instead of SA8!

Great job! Now we can go to Long's Drugs, Walgreens, KMart, Walmart and do price comparisons on ALL their stuff too!

Man, I can go on the stock market and analyze all these companies and the PRODUCT will be the FIRST thing I look at. Prices tell EVERYTHING about the company you know! Forget the management and people in it because that's too much credibility. What makes a company good is the PRICE. It's no wonder Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and all these other high-priced companies aren't out of business yet.

Again, great work here! That'll teach those amquix drones and show them that their business sucks because we can find similar less-expensive products elsewhere.

How come whenever I complain though that gas prices were too high and my cheeseburger at McDonald's is getting more expensive, they just laugh at me? Maybe I should put up a website too. What do you think?!

Player66,

My point is that many LOS's teach that the prices are much cheaper on Quixtar once you have factored in concentration. The reality is that they are not.

Some people like to buy more expensive things due to preferences. Some buy more expensive products because they are deluded into believing it is a better choice. These people even think they are saving money.

What is more, BWW teaches you are actually spending less money because:
1. You are getting products at about 30% discount
2. You gat a bonus.

The reality is that that 30% discount is off of their prices which are astronomically high. Furthermore, the 'bonus' is a lot less than you can save with coupons at a store.

And the comical thing about all of this is if you're in WWDB, you still have product pick up so you pay premium prices and shipping costs, then you get the honor of filling your gas tank to go pick up your stuff.

BWW still does that for tool pickup. In fact, when I moved far away from the team, I had tools shipped to me once. I was charged tax, shipping, and what it cost me to ship.

Did you ever see the math of shipping? There are 250 tapes per box. BWW has a 4% shipping fee (in our team at least). Tapes were $7.50. So the Emerald charged $75 dollars PER BOX OF TAPES. I have shipped with many different carriers. The most expensive thing I ever shipped was a microscope at $20. There are things that cost more, but a box of tapes will ship for only about $10 or so, an extra $65 profit for box of tools!
