Default Spot 2 at Costco

Saw the Spot 2 at Costco for $69. Not sure what it includes but looks
like a good deal.

I checked my local costco today and nothing. They told me to check
online costco and once again nothing. I hope they eventually make it
to Utah. Lets us know if anyone else finds them.

I was at a Costco in Denver and saw it there for $69.95 next to a
Garmin hand held GPS with 2 way radio.

Default Spot 2 at Costco

Hi,

Are you certain is was a SPOT 2 and not an old SPOT 1 they were "dumping".
All dealers must adhere to a minimum advertised price of $149.95 or they
will lose their dealership. I suspect that was a one store deal that won't
last long.

But you can buy a SPOT from any SPOT dealer from May 1st to July 31st and
take advantage of the $50 mail-in rebate.

There is also a deal on SPOT Connect services from May 21st through July
31st. Details are also available using the link above.

Best Regards,

While dealers are constrained to "advertise" no lower than MAP they
are not constrained to sell at MAP and there are creative ways to get
round this like "put in basket to see real price". Since Costco is a
member only outlet I doubt that MAP applies to them. People that shop
there often will have become wise to the fact that, while they sell
the same electronics products that can be purchased elsewhere, they
are often packaged with a different model number and some tiny
difference in package contents.

It is the Spot 2 in the normal package. I saw it there a couple of
weeks ago while travelling the isles and thought it was odd that they
would stock it.
I wasn't looking for it and did not buy it (have a Spot 1) and haven't
checked other Costcos in the area, but it's the real thing. I haven't
been back so I don't know if is still in stock.
