    Anything at BB&B is 20% off, so you could have bought that espresso machine in-store for $176.

    For five dollars, I will buy in-store.  That way I know it won't get damaged in shipment, I can return it if I want, and I can take it home and start brewing.

    As to whether evading tax is important, I would point you towards Amazon.  Bezos has explicitly stated that Amazon attributes its success to not having to collect sales taxes, and it has (until very recently) designed its operations so as to avoid having to collect sales taxes.
