Re: Defender Spring Sale...not

For us within driving distance, the Defender sale is somewhat like Christmas. I always make up a list of the things I'm planning on buying for the years projects (and with my boat, there's always a list!). Then when the sale starts, I check prices against some of the best I've been able to find around the net, especially on big ticket items. About 1/2 of the time I'll end up buying big stuff elsewhere, especially considering shipping vs. sales tax on lightweight but expensive items like electronics. This year, however, their prices are good enough that even considering sales tax, I'm better off (or at least break even) just buying there. I just updated my spreadsheet with the sale prices and I'm seeing roughly 10% discount across the board, a little less on a few items and more on some other items.
