At least STC appreciates us enough to send out monthly deals and coupon codes
I agree, but I think it's gotten much better now compared to 1-2 years ago. If you guys think TPC's prices are expensive now, it was even worse before STC came. TPC basically had a monopoly in the niche decant market. In the past year or so, more options sprang up, most noteably STC, and so TPC had no choice but to reduce their prices to be able to compete.
Ironically, the people that started STC used to work at TPC. I believe they had a falling out and left to start their own company, which ended up becoming STC.
