I went and got a job at a music retail store to mainly get the employee discount and start paying off another purchase i had made, but i soon learned that i could call the reps for many companies and request an employee accomidation price for the purchase of their products. I paid about $1,300 for new software which would have cost me over $6,000 had I not gone direct. I also kept up good relations with the rep, so although I may not be working at the retailer any longer, he still gives me those prices. That's definitely one way I was able to combat my gear acquisition syndrome.
