Costco [costco.com] has the Sony Aplha A6000 bundle with 18-55mm and 55-210mm Lens, 32GB SD Card and bag for $649.99 ( $1,249 - $600). The deal is valid from 05/04/2015 to 05/31/2015.

This is slightly cheaper than the previous FP deal.

Update:
YMMV - Price matched with Best Buy bundle [bestbuy.com] for a total of $708.48 ($649.98 + $58.50 tax) in store.

** State law may require sales tax to be charged on the pre-discounted price if the product is subject to sales tax.
Sales Tax Charge on Pre-Coupon Price [costco.com]
Quote :
Costco offers our members special savings on selected name brand products. The manufacturers of these items, both regional and national in market, participate by reimbursing Costco for the amount of coupons and discounts redeemed.
Under tax law, the discount offered under a manufacturer's coupon, where the manufacturer funds the discount, is subject to sales tax. Most states take the position that the merchandise is still being sold for the full original sales price. In these situations, the law requires that sales tax be calculated and charged on the sales price prior to any discount.
In all states where we have warehouses, except CT, MA, PA, and TX, items are taxed before the coupon is deducted.

what's wrong with the tax?

I'm getting $120 tax on a $650 item.

interesting to see that it comes with the 18-55mm kit instead of the more common 16-50mm kit.

Yes, same thing for me. look like Costco.com charges tax based on the original price.
The tax include the tax for the $600 discount, which would add $55 in my area.

You think best buy will price match this? If so it will save me $58 on taxes here in CA.

They don't carry the 18-5mm lens. This [bestbuy.com] is the only bundle they carry.

The 18-55mm is a cheaper lens than the 16-50mm kit lens so keep that in mind before purchasing

FYI ... Yes Costco charges the tax on the original price rather than the discounted price and that's pretty common.

Image quality wise, 18-55 is reviewed better than 16-50. 18-55 is generally regarded as a pretty decent and sharp lens for it being a kit lens compared to other standard 18-55 kit lens in DSLR bundles. 16-50 is noted as having horrible distortion, corrected by software but at the end of the day, is comparable to 18-55. 16-50 is much smaller than 18-55 and weighs less as well so if compactness and weight are your priorities, then you don't want the 18-55. It's easy to sell 18-55 and get 16-50 in it's place (i.e., Amazon marketplace, ebay) and not pay a money more. 16-50 also has power zoom, which means there is a zoom switch on the lens that will smoothly zoom in and out, which helps for smooth zooms in video mode. Both lens however are "kit" lens and if you're getting a6000, you'd probably want to spend some extra money on getting one or two other lens options. Sigma 30mm f2.8 is a very sharp lens for only $200 (no OIS however) and Sony's 16mm f2.8 pancake ($250) is a fun little lens, esp when you get the ultra-wide converter and/or fisheye converter that you can attach to it for $100 each respectively.

Is this just on costco.com or in store as well? Confused

Such a disapointment on the tax situation, I was waiting for this to go on sale. Mad Is there a particular reason why they charge the tax on the MSRP?
