CM consultants can lose a lot of money by carrying stock. I have heard many complaints about that from former consultants. SU carries hundreds of items, and has a fairly fast product turnover compared to CM. So it's for our own protection. I'd love to do a bit of cash and carry, but understand why SU has that rule - it is not worth the risk for the demonstrators. I agree it is hard to wait when you have a project in mind- especially those of us on the East Coast. UPS is taking 10 days to deliver my first catalog order after I received the shipping notice (day after I placed the order). Usually it is 7 day, but I think SU was shipping on Sat. to keep up with the demand, so my order sits in a truck over 2 weekends.
