Newegg doesn't collect sales tax from nearly as many places as AZ does. Additionally, if you have it, you can apply the $25 off $200 Newegg AMEX offer. Finally, Newegg is bundling a "free" copy of Watchdogs 2 game (as a digital download).
I purposely put the word "free" in quotes because Newegg is arguably acting unethically with that offer. They end up creating two separate orders/invoices, one for the drive itself, the other for the "free" game. The invoice for the drive has a $59.99 "game discount" applied to it (lowering the drive order's price to $190). The "free" game is then invoiced for $59.99 (that's the unethical part, IMO). If the game is advertised as FREE, the invoice for it should be $0.00 and the drive should be charged the full price. I suspect they're doing it this way to prevent people from obtaining free copies of the game (by simply returning the drive afterwards while keeping the game). BTW, if you place an order and then cancel out the game order, it also cancels out the drive order. I assume if you receive your order and then try to return the game afterwards, Newegg will likely only accept that return if you also return the drive. Wonder if a CC w/ return protection benefits would let you return the game order by itself (while holding onto the drive). If so, that could make this a VERY hot deal for a 1TB drive (as low as $165 after $25 AMEX offer and $59.99 return protection reimbursement).
