Question Buying tile , local, big box, or internet?

I went into my local tile place today, got a price quote on some American Olean vallano 12x12 tile , it was $3.28 a square foot, on the net I found it for almost a buck cheaper (but not including S&H) and Lowes which carries it for around a similar price.
I still think I'm going to buy from the local guy,but I was just wondering where most people buy their tile from, the internet, bigbox or Local tile stores, and where they find the best deals.

I send all my customers to 2 showrooms I deal with, I get up to a 30% discount,

But I will install any tile they buy elsewhere.

I have never bought tile on the internet, shipping, damage and all that.
