Default Cheap struts?

I was just wondering if anyone around here knows where I can get some struts for a good price. I want to replace my rear struts with monroe-sensatrac 71798 (I think thats the popular choice?) So anyway, they are $147.99 per strut here, and I was just wondering if I can get 'em cheaper.

I wonder if we have a vendor that would get us a decent discount for a quantity order. I'll be getting all 4 corners real soon myself.

Good news is Monroe still has the buy 3 get the 4th free sale going on thru the month around here (NY) not sure if it applies to our northern brothers.

(edit)
**** I just checked Monroe'* site and the rebate applies to Cananda also.
