Hey, it's free shipping.

I just bought 4 W-18 Champions from O'Reily's for $30.06.

I will occasionally find something with an absurd price on ebay, the person who listed it obviously knows they are dreaming but then again maybe not. Someone who has money to burn and wants something would probably not be wasting their time shopping around for the best deal.....

eBay has gotten to be ???????
You are proving, it pays to shop around! Same thing with Amazon! Many items cheaper, even with shipping elsewhere!

Thumbs down Re: $70 bucks for one spark plug!

I've noticed an unimaginable rise in "tag-topper" prices too! What's with people these days??? Greed has really taken over.... Is it: "I better
screw people over before they screw me!" Or what?
