Maybe RS needs a new webmaster! Wink

This page shows both the 2116 and 2117 at a price of $29.99 each, and in stock for online purchase. Plus, they seem to be offering FREE shipping on all orders over $25 for the holidays!.

I never ordered off their website. Do they charge tax?. If not with free shipping that is a great deal that I may have to take advantage of since I only have one 2116 and it may be worthwhile to back it up with a couple of 2117's

I've never ordered online from them either, so I don't know!

Why don't you buy a few of those 2117's and let us know? Shocked Wink

if they take up too much room in your house, I'll bite the bullet and let you dump one off for free on me.

They do charge tax but it is still a good deal. I checked and my local has them in stock so I guess I may drop just by tomorrow on my way home from work. Handy to have standing by for Christmas presents for people like Jim

The way tax works on the net is like this: If the seller is just based in one location, he only has to collect sales tax when the buyer is from his state. For sellers like Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc who have locations in every state, hey collect tax from everyone.

Here's a bit that I bet you didn't know though. When you buy from an out of state online seller who doesn't collect sales tax from you, you are supposed to pay a "use tax" yourself! (I'm serious)

Good bet, I didn't know that. Thank god I keep the money in my pocket just incase the government ever asks for it. I think that is the safest place to hold it for them. Laughing

The new link at the top of the RS remotes page is interesting. You can find many OEM remotes from a company called Vance Baldwin Electronics.


Wow...$95 to replace the simple remote from my Denon DVD player! I guess if you REALLY need the OEM remote, this might be your solution.
