    Other than eBay, are there any authorized web retailers to buy the iPad tax free? If not, are there any advantages to buying at the Apple store as opposed to Target, Walmart, etc?

    Thanks. :)

    The only places I imagine would be able to do this would be military exchanges on the respective bases/posts. However, you would need to have a valid military ID in order to purchase anything at these stores. This also depends on if they still sell merchandise sans sales tax. I am not 100% sure at this point.

    How about Amazon? Shipments to me in Virginia directly from Amazon have been tax free since the beginning; but, if it's not coming from Amazon that might be a different case. Any Amazon buyer out there to chime in?

    Thanks for the replies. I am not military, so that isn't an option. I've been checking Amazon for the last several days, and only 3rd party sellers have them, and they are price gouging.

    I read somewhere that if you have a Target card, you can get 5% off purchases...which would be almost as good as no sales tax.

    Oregon also pumps your gas along with NJ

    I remember my dad always drove 15 to cross the state line into OR to shop. Now I know why
