I've ordered from most of the online retailers and found that it depends on what you're ordering. I ordered a Guitar from zzsounds.com because they have free shipping and also had a package for guitar and case, most other online retailers add the case separately and because of it's weight charge anywhere from $6 to 12 for shipping. I ordered a Studio Projects C1 from Music123.com because they carry it and the free shipping, but 123 can be very slow getting orders out. It's taken 3 days after credit card approval to get my microphone shipped which seems pretty long. I ordered some odd cables from Musicians Friend and they were great and fast with free shipping with orders over $299.
Just look online and see if one retailer has every thing you're looking for and order it from them in one shipment.
