I'm glad the day went well! That's crazy about the mark-up though. Sonlight has right on their website how much their price is, how much Amazon's price is, and how much their price with the Core purchaser discount. Every once in a while Amazon will be slightly cheaper, but most are cheaper from Sonlight, especially factoring in the Core discount. I'm guessing that since WinterPromise is still relatively new and doesn't have the numbers of customers Sonlight has they just can't get the volume discount on ordering their books from the publisher that Sonlight (or Amazon) can. I wouldn't be surprised if in the future their prices go down some as they get a larger customer base. Of course that doesn't help you right now so it's a good thing Amazon is an option.
