I needed headlight bulbs for my daily driver so I checked prices on Rockauto and Amazon. The bulbs are 9007LL (Long Life). On Amazon they were $25 EACH on Rockauto they were $3.25 EACH.
Yes, I did check and they were the same part number, from the same manufacturer. I ended up ordering two bulbs from Rockauto including delivery for $9.16.
What's up with that?

Amazon has to pay for all that free shipping somehow??

Sounds like one (or both?) of them put their decimal in the wrong place.

Always pays to shop around. Amazon hosts a lot of third party vendors who set their own prices. Sometimes Amazon has the best prices, sometimes not.

Got a set of Monroe "Quick-Struts" from RockAuto for 'mits' jellybean Toyota last month, $250 and an hour of my time on a Sunday morning. GREAT deal compared to a dealership or shop expense. :thumbsup:
