    You know - sales tax is applied after the sale, so a sale price actually reduces your sales tax paid (same % on a lower total).

    +1 for understanding basic consumer math

    Wow...after the 25% off + shipping + tax, I ALMOST save a whopping $3.

    FYI, it applies to sale items.

    I apologize heavily sir, I am not accustomed to ordering off of the Brooks Brothers Webstore.
    I'm just making a point that the appeal of 25% off would lead a person (well, I guess not you) to hope to save more than $2.50 off the grand total.
    I would rather pay a bit more & try on a item in the store (forgo the hardship of a return/exchange) than get 25% off + shipping fee. But that's just me.

    But then consider that if there were no discount and the shirt weren't 3 for $199. How much would pay then with tax and shipping? You should calculate the savings from that price as lmao implied. So really, a person doesn't just save $2.50.

    not necessarily. for instance there could be a free shipping option for those who purchase a certain amount. also, i rarely have to pay taxes on online shopping because most companies don't have stores in my state.

    That makes sense. The $2.50 example just applied to my situation, in which I was only purchasing one shirt.

    A rainbow could shoot out of my ass, and gumdrops could rain down and feed the hungry. And then the government could not tax free gumdrops as earned income. And then I could trade them for shirts, and have shipping fees waived because of a special gumdrop sale! I think I'll complain about this sequence of events not occurring.
