Filter costs - NAPA vs. Fleetguard

I compared costs between NAPA & Fleetguard at Filterbarn.com and was shocked at the difference in price for oil filters. I have found NAPA to be 2-3 times as expensive. Does any one have any idea if the additional cost is justified?

Our dealership found fleetguard to be the lowest priced filters. We always used fleetguard and had good luck with them. Just because someone charges more, doesn't make them better.

Since Fleetguard is a division of Cummins (Cummins Filtration), you'll never have a warranty question with Cummins related to adequacy of filtration if you run the appropriate Fleetguard filter, and you know that the filter was sized and selected by the engine manufacturer to meet its specific requirements.

Also if you buy from someone like Filterbarn, if the cost high enough, the shipping is free and there is no taxes.

FilterBarn purchase of $100+ equals free shipping.

I bought thru NAPA and got a large discount when I signed up to AITA and became a heavy duty preferred customer. The parts guy signed me up as I was making the transaction. If I'm not mistaken, NAPA's first quote to me was around 300-400 dollars.
