I find my own experience mirrors that of Kali Yuga's. Most of my ebooks are cheaper by a few dollars to as much as 80% cheaper than the nearest printed version. Plus with coupons and rewards, I save even more than I would have buying from Amazon or shopping at Borders/B&N/bookstores.
The savings is especially notable if you buy from Print-On-Demand sites like Lulu (which I do). Most bound paperbacks cost $12 and $4 or more for shipping whereas the ebook version only costs a few dollars.
