Do they accept credit cards at the website? If you're willing to order
online w/ a credit card, my guess is they'll not even ask or care whether
you're purchasing for an institution. I use a cc all the time. Some
faculty members here have even purchased items on their personal accounts
and had the business office reimburse them. They may lose out on
reimbursement for the tax paid, but at $20 vs. $70 per tape, it still may
be worth it!
