Austin Homebrew, hands down. They have the best selection. I live in WA State, and still get all my grains etc from them.

+1 for Austin Homebrew supply. However, I will add the Midwest has done a couple of Groupon deals for starter kits that are awesome deals. Also lets not forget your LHBS. Might pay a little bit extra, but as someone who just had their local store go out of business, let me tell you that it is worth paying a little extra to have a place in town.

Sucks waking up on a weekend, realizing my day is clear but not being able to brew because I don't have any ingredients handy and the nearest shop is an hour drive.

Whichever one has something I like on sale. Really. I don't do kits a lot and look at the ones which are on sale to se if any interest me. Latest purchase was an all grain porter from Northern Brewer for just $23, but have used NB, Midwest, and Austin with equally good results.
Award winning:
Northern Brown Ale

"Guess I'll watch some TV, cuz it's nice to see people more messed up than me."

Bottled: Wee Ain't Heavy (Wee Heavy);
Kegged: Brown Rhyno Old Ale (Rye Knot+ clone); Second Amendment Vanilla/Bourbon Porter; Pale Ale (a'la EdWort's Haus Pale);
On Deck: Northern Brown; Kolsch; Apricot wheat,
