I use mostly the consumer line. I get almost all my products from Walmart.

I mostly order online from ADS and have it shipped to family. This way I save a lot of money, almost cut my invoice in half or more everytime ! Now that the canadian dollar is worth more than the US, it's even more money saved for me.
Detailing stuff is very expensive in Canada.

Only good if you live in the good ol' US of A. Alot of us don't. Just saying.....

I have no choice but to use Walmart, and Canadian Tire. I'd rather not but what can I do. Online stores (Canadian) are limited to what they carry and to buy from the US..well we get killed on shipping. E-Shine is great for the amount of product they carry of Megs. I've just recently swiched to LC pads because I can't get Megs ones anymore. Which ***** because I don't like the LC pads now that I've tried them.

I used to order all the time from Amazon.com....started to order stuff from Autogeek & ADS as I like a lot of their stuff they carried.
Right now I'd say I'm about 90% AG & ADS and only 5% Amazon & 5% Walmart/Can Tire.....

Autogeek is a "go to" favorite too. I just like "family" run businesses in the current economy.

since Im in Mexico, Meguiars are sooo expensive here (twice at least) so I buy from autogeek, ship to USA address, car border cross, then internal shipping. Thats logistics!!

I still like detailing.com for a lot of products. Their prices tend to be lower then many other places on many products. There is on "online site" that I won't shop at... it plasters their site that they will match any price... but they clearly don't. Just offer the lowest prices... don't make people work to get the price lowered to what others already charge. If that is the case, I'll shop the place that already has the lower price.

I made an order from ADS yesterday. It seems to me like the prices were higher than they used to be last year. Detailing.com were cheaper on several items, but I was not able to get the CCS 5,5" pads I wanted. The biggest difference was the gallon of Last Touch. It was 4$ cheaper from Detailing.com.

I always buy my stuff mostly from Autogeek... If I need something very quick then I go to Walmart.
