MDM7, I am not sure why you ressurected this thread? I missed the constitutional right to lowest price evey time clause. This issue has spawned multiple threads in the past. Those who have made carefull comparisons have found instances where different sellers, not just BN or Amazon have the lowest price or availabilty. BN occasionally is much more. I feel expectations are unreasonable on this issue. Is there any other product or retail channel where a seller has the best price every time? If you live in a place with multiple grocery chains are their prices identical? I expect generally competitive pricing, I feel BN meets this test. Just like grocery stores there are booksellers with coupons or price match policies if that is your priority. Of course just like ads, googleing, or comparison trips you are paying with your time, your choice though.
Whether it's actually true or not, I don't know, but most Americans seem to believe that Wal-Mart always has the lowest prices.
