Did I pay too much?

I am new to so much of this, so please bear with me. I purchased a Springfield pedestal from WalMart for $395. Did I pay too much? Is there somewhere else I can get a better price? Thanks, Kathy:

Got mine from Overtons a couple years ago, don't see it there now. Here's another place that turned up on Google for $320. https://www.llebroc.com/product-p/spr-1660230.htm

I know nothing about them.

Thank you for your help. That is a far better price than I paid. I can return the one I purchased from Walmart. Thanks again!

I think after much online searching, and even some phone calls, we paid $283 for ours in 2017 from llebroc.com

Thanks. I just ordered from Llebroc and it was significantly cheaper than Walmart. I wanted black, so paid more for that. The silver was $319. Thank you for your help!

I paid 291.49 on August 22, 2018 for one from Lebroc. There was no charge for Fedex shipping.

Thanks. I just spoke to Nick at Llebroc and asked about the price increase. He told me that Springfield raised their prices in December. Still far better price than Iboat or Walmart. Thanks for your help!

You cannot blame them for raising prices. At least they are good about their warranty. See my comments today in the thread about Springfield heat/cold where I said that yesterday they replaced our defective pedestal no questions asked.

If it's at WalMart, you will likely always pay too much. Just sayin'.
