If you shop at the tires plus site they have coupons on their website.

The same with the other guys tire kingdom.

I've never ordered tires off the internet, but have taken their quotes down to my local tire shop and got them to match the price. I do pay sales tax, but I get my tires on the car that day.

Re: List of items that have a 'Negative Inflation' over the past year...........

I think everything electronic has gone down in price for equivalent functionality over the years.

No one mentioned cell phones. Per minute charges are definitely down.

What about online music - you don't need to buy a whole CD (or LP for those of us who remember them!) for a couple of good songs

Email - no postage stamps required.

Publishing on the web - can you imagine what it would cost to publish your thoughts (think blog) before the internet?

hybrid cars. I read someplace that a honda accord hybrid gives you some 45 miles a gallon.

And things that technology is making obsolete?
- not many people walk around with pagers anymore
- wireline phones seem to be on the decline
- why do I need a wrist watch when my cell phone tells me the right time all the time?

- income tax
- captial gains tax
- tax on stock dividends.

.. this has gotten me in a good mood. Will last till I watch the news!

I dont actually buy the tires online. I just bring in the coupons that you can print online.
Discounts on oil changes, tires and other services.
www.keycodes.com also has some good deals
I was just reading how if you buy your tv at costco you can later return it. Then purchase the better model at the new lower cost. Its kinda tempting since the lcd's are much cheaper today .

Remember how much long distance calls, especially international ones, cost pre-Internet?
