Panasonic TS6 Waterproof with Many Extras (including AfterShot Pro 2) for $278

Splash, into me! If Dave Matthews was doing camera instead of yogurt covers of their own songs, this may have been what they used for waterproof cameras. With that unnecessary sentence out of the way, Adorama has Panasonic TS6 waterproof bundles for $278 with free shipping and a boatload of extras: 16GB Toshiba SD card, Lowepro case, Vivitar floating strap, cleaning kit, and more important perhaps of all, the Corel Digital Organization Creativity Software Kit which includes the AfterShot Pro 2 and Paintshop Pro X7 software (along with a couple of other titles, FileCenter, OmniPage). No coupons, no rebates, just add the thing to the shopping cart and checkout.

TIP: look for the aforementioned bundles in the long list of 20 options there. This offer is currently available in black or orange or blue or cameo (camouflage).

For the TL;DR crowd, the aforementioned bundles look like this in the search results (note the tiny little software boxes in the annotated screenshot below):

Shipping from Asia/China
On the other hand, if you are not in a hurry to receive them, and want to pay a much lower price, and don’t object to buying from China, there are some shipping from China options as follows:

+ these ship from China
+ 9pk of 4-cell cases for $3.46 with free shipping (you receive nine cases, each case holds four batteries)
+ 5pk of 4-cell cases for $2.64 with free shipping
+ these ship from China

Many more options
There are many more options over there, you could literally spend hours going through all the various options and color choices and such. Caution: it can be addictive :)

TIP: different color of cases is one way to separate the charged from the depleted.
