Amazon sucks, it was $89.99 several months ago and I ordered 4 and they claim price mistake and shipped only 1, and now they charge tax also.

Yes, Amazon sucks because they had a price mistake that you tried to take advantage of (really...buying 4?), and actually sent you one anyway. And they suck for complying with government laws. Imagine that.

Better deal than Costco because 1) I just bought it in my pajamas, 2) I didn't have to wait until next weekend, and 3) 5% Discover CB (better than 3% Costco True Earnings AMEX CB).

Looks like Amazon is OOS at $100. Available from 3rd parties for much higher

That's not accurate. People have a right to be upset with Amazon over this. There was no law that said they had to do it. Amazon could have continued to avoid sales tax in CA but they negotiated an agreement to do it.

"Amazon and the state tax collector, who have been at loggerheads for years over the issue of Internet sales taxes...

Amazon last year struck a deal with Gov. Jerry Brown. The company promised to open two 1-million-square-foot distribution centers in Northern and Southern California and to start charging sales tax..."

for opening 1M sq ft center, they got money from state which now every resident is paying for in the form of taxes! I cancelled my prime once Amazon started charging taxes in CA
