If it’s possible to buy direct from the manufacturer, I’d recommend that over purchasing from Amazon. If you want customer support, buy from a local dealer that offers the service.

Mega-corporations already get enough bailouts and tax breaks. They don’t need our money too. These days, I prefer buy from localized chains or small businesses so long as the prices are within reasonable market values. Small businesses are more likely to return the money to their communities. Big corporations will use it to lobby for government and societal changes that benefit themselves.
