I order quite a bit from Amazon. So, I'm an Amazon Prime member and we get free 2-day shipping ($3.99 overnight shipping). For the Windows 7 Upgrades, we get the free 2-day shipping, but will receive it by October 22. And yes, no tax as well.
I went with Professional for my PC, but got Home Premium for our kids PC. If it wasn't for XP Mode (XPM) which is free for Professional users, I probably would have settled for Home Premium myself and saved $50. That said, I want Ultimate for Boot from VHD functionality, but it isn't worth the premium IMHO. Not in my case.
