Amazon isn't just a seller, it's a marketplace where small sellers can list their products and sell them under the banner of a big internet presence. Some small sellers can undercut the prices of the big guys.

Here's a tip..............

Take those Amazon prices or any other prices you find in print, call Summit, tell them how much you found the parts for (as well as the free ship) and Summit will beat the price (any verifiable price) by 10%.

Yes, Summit is and always will be the cheapest IF you know how to play the game.

These wheels & tires v v v started out at almost $1500.00 for the pair.



After doing my homework and ordering from Summit, I paid $874.00 with shipping and FREE mounting & balancing.

AMAZON like the river, is big on savings! I needed a box of Dynamat 10455 (9 sheets 18 x 32"). Summit Racing was/is $90.00 more per box = $232.00. AMAZON was/is $142.00 per box. At that price, bought two boxes, just to have one for the future.

Just this morning I needed a mini fuse and instead of running to auto store for one, I looked them up on Amazon.
$ 1.18 for a 120 pc. assortment kit plus $4.68 in shipping !
How can you beat $ 5.86 for 120 fuse's .
A nickel each !

The Amazon Prime membership is a good deal, especially if you buy things from Amazon on a regular basis. When I was looking for a winch for my racecar trailer I found a Superwinch Terra 45 on Summit. The shipping was a lot. I found the same winch on Amazon. I bought the Prime membership and 2 days later my winch was at my door. The Prime membership was a little more than the shipping from Summit. So for me, it worked out well.

I found some parts for my OT Nissan on Amazon at a great price and ordered 2 since it was such a good deal. I now have an account with them. The shipping has been fast, so far.

I don't mind paying more if it means buying it from 'the little guy'. I use Amazon too, don't get me wrong. For out of print CD's/DVD's or Vinyl, some electronics sure. But buying car parts on-line when I've got a parts store in town thats been here for years with old-timers who know what the hell they're talking about? No way. I'd feel partially responsible if they went out of business while I forked my money over to a company that wouldn't ever feel my purchase one way or the other.

Maybe it's me, but not buying local seems like stealing from my community. San Angelo might be different too. Lots of older business' down here that need those local sales to stay afloat. Maybe it's the times, and eventually specialty stores with actual people working at them will be a thing of the past, but if paying a little less somewhere else is what kills em off, I don't want to participate.

Last year I started buying my lunch at burger king with a debit card.

Not long after I got a letter in the mail that said "I was the lucky winner of an Amazon $1000 gift card" (because by using my debit card I was automatically entered in their contest.)(

I knew it was bullshit, but I cautiously filled out the form.

Turns out it was legit, and got $1000 of free stuff from amazon!, no problems at all. Lots of deals there if you look. (I never used amazon before then, thought it was only for books)

i just recieved 4 shocks, 2 coils springs and some bump stops through Amazon and using the prime membership i saved $30! Amazon is like a modern day J.C Whitney simply a clearing house! One thing to remember is buying online keeps people working also and anymore it seems like the local parts house always says "yeah we can order it for you" well fuck i can do that myself! Any more i look up the part and call for a "physical check" before i drive anywhere and if it's a major repair i plan it well in advance before i start!
