Just so you know, Amazon.com does have some discounts. But with $110, you should buy a nice Serge Lutens scent from an online vendor. You will get an awesome scent and when you buy from most places online (luckyscent, lacremebeauty, lusciouscargo, etc.) they give you lots of free samples. Can't you just pay by money order? I don't know the answers to your other questions.
