Well almost true. I just purchased a Palm IIIx from OfficeMax.com with
their 155% price-matching policy against Shopping.com. They did charge
me tax, BUT, they honored Shopping.com delivery price of $4.95 (a snippet
of the email correspondence with the representative is below). So, I was
still able to IIIx at a reasonable price (~$230), even with tax (CA).

Anxiously awaiting my IIIx, which amazingly cost less than my Pilot Pro
did two years ago...
