PRS-505 for $199.97 at Costco (USA only)

Good news for our american members.

Costco B&M is clearing out the PRS-505 models, I went to the one in Pentagon City, VA and Chantilly, VA and bought a total of 11 readers with 11 AC adapters by Sony for $199.97 each prior to tax. Costco online still has the original price of $269.99.

Call your local Costco to verify clearance price and inventory before going. The first store I went to only had 2 left, the one in Chantilly originally had 11 left, I went next day only 9 were left.

My guess is most of those 11 505s are going up on eBay.

igorsk didn't buy them (unless he drove from Belgium to Virginia to hit up Costco). The quote is from the fatwallet post he linked to.

I stopped in the South San Francisco Costco today and they had three left at $199.97. Keep in mind that the Costco model includes the official Chager worth $30, so the actual cost of the reader is $170. I don't think this can be beat for a NIB 505.

FWIW, the three boxes were not on display but in the electronics security area. Only found them because I gave a clerk the item number from the website.
