Do you shop online using Amazon? To make money off of their customers, they sell items they have in stock for less than retail value, with the promise of free shipping if you purchase an Amazon Prime membership (or if you spend $35.00 or more).
My advice: don't pay for Amazon Prime if you only plan on using it for the occasional free two-day shipping benefits. Other businesses using the site to list their products will often sell you the same items for less than the prices advertized by Amazon. Depending on the seller, you can also get free or reduced shipping on your order.
