Bamboo flooring @ Lumber Liquidators

Anyone had success negotiating price for materials at Lumber Liquidators? We're looking to put 1k'+ down and it came out to $10.25/sqft. Bit pricey considering the $3.99/sqft cost just for the bamboo.

Does that mean it will cost $6.25/sq ft for installation? What does that include?

Ummmmm No, that isn't a bit pricey at all.... it is actually a low price if you get a quality job. Keep this in mind, Bamboo is not a great product (don't get into the "green" arguement) is is very soft and will show wear and tear much sooner then other products out there. If you have kids, dogs etc... do some more research.
