Kobo Glo at Costco

Was in Costco today and noticed that the Glo being sold for $127 and change and includes a black/dark grey sleep cover.

Just letting everyone know in case they are looking to buy.

Happy New Year!

I just saw them today and came "that" close to getting one... But I really couldn't justify getting a third e-ink reader; my Sony is barely 6 months old and my Mini is still a newborn....

HoyPhoto, where are you located? Costco is an international chain. Did you see this in the United States, or in Canada, or somewhere else?

Canada...although it could also be available in the US but I doubt at "exactly" that price...

A friend just picked up one at the Costco in Winnipeg. Great deal! The only color available is a black Kobo Glo with a black sleepcover. The Costco-specific packaging is horrendous: a giant card with a blister on it; very difficult to open. But the price is sweet: $127 plus tax; a savings of $41 off of Chapters/Indigo. Thanks for the tip, HoyPhoto!

This is worse than going shopping with the girls... You always end up going home with some impulse item that they encouraged you to buy... Good thing Costco is closed tomorrow so that we can get past that impulse phase!

I consider is a victory, albeit a small one, if I can get out of CostCo under $300.

So I went to Costco today. And there they were... the kobo glo right at the front of the store. I played with the demo model for a minute and I have to admit that it is snappier and crisper than my kobo touch but... I think that black bar on the bottom would drive me bonkers. And as someone on another thread mentioned, my current reader works fine for what I need and the money I would spend on the "latest and greatest model" could be spent on books. So no glo for me. (and I managed to spend less than 300$ this trip because of it )
