I guess they are authorized. I am sharing my experience from yesterday when whizlabs website mentioned $300 for SCEA exam voucher while Sun itself was selling the same exam voucher for $200
Today whizlabs website changed the price to $200 and if you chat with one of their customer support members, they are selling it for $150. But here is the catch, you need to buy it for $200 from the website and then whizlabs will refund $50. If they don't refund, you don't have any proof that price was $150.
Also, the discount in promotional email I received was not honored saying the email was by mistake !! Height of doing online business.
