Default How much discount do tradesmen get?

RS used to be stupidly expensive, especially for small quantities and
non-trade users (originally they wouldn't sell to retail customers).

However I think the likes of CPC, Rapid-Recall, Farnell (yes, I know
they own CPC) and even Maplin forced RS to become cheaper and more
'user friendly'.

It is worth going via Topcashback, which can have quite generous cashback
for the likes of RS, Farnell, CPC, etc.

We get a consortium discount on Farnell/CPC (it varies by line), but the
cashback seems to work out at roughly the same discount for normal people
making cash orders.
