I talked to Gobi. They said that they couldn't beat any retailers price and had to sell for full retail. I always thought that going through the factory might get me a better deal. I guess that would make their retail agreements worthless though if the factory can undercut them.
I was hoping a forum vendor could match the price of a few non-forum vendors I have seen online, but I can't even figure out which vendors here sell the stuff. I was just trying to throw some support to a vendor that supports this forum before I ordered from a non-supporter.
