Refurbished Nikon S7000 (20x optical, Wifi) for $123

Another compact zoom sale, the black Nikon Coolpix S7000 (20x optical, Wifi) is available in certified refurbished condition with a 90 day warranty for $123 with free shipping by Beach Camera thru Amazon. The new condition price at authorized dealers is $200 with free accessories (eg Adorama).

This ships from a Beach Camera facility, but if you are a Prime member, you still get free Prime shipping. This is because of a recent expansion of the Prime program benefits where some retailers for some products (such as Beach Camera and recently Adorama) also offer fast shipping for Prime members. The downside of this is that you have to pay even more attention to the product listings to notice all these distinctions. Annotated screenshot crop below highlighting the points to look at:
