Panasonic FZ70 for $250 (or $262.50 for non-members)

It’s not just 500-packs of toilet paper. Costco has cameras too and at the moment they are offering the Panasonic FZ70 superzoom for $250 thanks to an instant savings discount ending by 3/29/15. If you are not a Costco member, you can buy it with a 5% surcharge, so in this case $250 + $12.50 = $262.50. The kit also includes a camera bag and 16GB SD card, both Panasonic branded. With free shipping. Sorry, a rotisserie chicken is not included ;-)

Costco memberships are $55/year or $110/year for Executive (you earn 2% rewards up to $750 in rewards). Sometimes however they have special new member promotions that get you a handful of household freebies – including the rotisserie chicken – well you get a certificate for it so you can grab it whenever it’s convenient, they won’t force you to eat chicken the moment you sign up ;-)

Speaking of Costco, their relationship with American Express as the main credit card of choice at B&M stores will end on 3/31/2016 (next year). So if AMEX exclusivity (for the B&M stores; website is more flexible) was the main reason you didn’t become a member, there might be better payment options.
