You're right, I didn't acknowledge that it was a different source.

I'm in the same boat. With so many online retailers charging little or nothing to ship, it's difficult to go through S@H when they charge higher-than-average shipping. Even those times when they do offer free shipping, I have to REALLY want a set to pay MSRP for it. It's too bad their VIP program isn't a better deal - only a 5% rebate. Most places offer 10% with a loyalty card.
