    Has anyone ever done this? How did it work out for you? Did it tick off the funeral home? How did your family/friends react? Anyone have any companies that they would recommend?

    We printed it out and took it to the Funeral parlor, they matched the price +$100, which was much better then the original price.

    You have 2 make sure that the casket meets your state requirements. We did it and save a few thousand.

    I wonder how many of those Casket's are made in the US, I wouldn't want to buy one online and then find out it was made in China, that would have any American turning in there grave. I like that some of you have been able to use the internet as leverage for pricing at the funeral home.

    Cosco sells them. Check their prices and ask the funeral home.
