We turn to Amazon when there is no local alternative. HH
I have been looking around for an equitorial tracking mount for one of my cameras and like you have been using Amazon for price comparisons.I honestly have used Amazon Site as a price comparing tool, but seldom find if I looking for item, I can not get better deal elsewhere. There's price are not lowest.
I need nothing today, or tomorrow. USPS or UPS in a week is fine, 10 days is not a big deal.
I surely do not want to make Jeff Bozo the liberal owner richer.
Maybe I am weird I like to talk to people, not text, or email if I have question about product, warranty, or how something works. I like company with live people in USAanswer toll free numbers.
I do have respect for a guy who started in garage selling books, and has become sucessful. Hate his politics, hate Amazona apprently is not a great work place.
Like I said I find better prices elsewhere, don't need it yeasterday, or tomarrow.
Have never bought from Amazon, don't see self doing so.

when I find the one I want, I will buy from the manufacturers or a retailer that exists outside of the internot.
I do find myself buying some small items from Amazon, but mainly because I can get the item the next day.
