Retailer with free shipping and no tax to CA?

Looking to get an iPad mini 16gb w/ verizon and wondering what my options are at the moment. Is there a retailer I can place a phone order with and get free shipping / no tax?

Thanks,
unsped

b&h photo comes to mind, but you're better off buying from walmart with their current discount. $299 plus tax is still less than $329 elsewhere.

:edit:
it looks like walmart's discount is only for the 16gb wifi. if that was the model you wanted, it's still the way to go. otherwise, try b&h photo. i've had good experiences shopping from them. good return policy, too.

Second B&H Photo. I bought many expensive electronics from them. Shipping is free and relatively quick. No tax. And excellent customer service.

Try J&R Electronics - 16GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular (Verizon) - call them and ask about shipping and such. And I know they're having a sale on pretty much all current iPads.

BH isn't charging tax. I know the 299 16gb is a good deal right now, but I have unlmited LTE on my phone so sim swapping is just too irresistible. Thanks folks.

Amazon charges sales tax for shipments to California and will be charging sales tax in more states over the next few months.

When is the last time you lived in CA long enough to order something from Amazon and have it shipped to your CA address?

They charge tax. If you live in CA, good luck not paying tax.

Get a Target debit card, tied to your checking account. No credit check, 5% off everything in the store, and currently offering a $30 discount on all iPad minis.
So $299 - 5% = $275+tax.
