Looks like Amazon matched the price if I'm looking at the right thing:

I purchased this drone the last time B&H had it for 550. It's a great drone it's also pretty big which makes it a bit uneasy to travel with. I recently took the included steady grip with the camera on my last hiking trip. My shots were very smooth.

As a camera gear it's not bad. But definitely get the Mavic or the Spark instead since it's really quite difficult to fly this drone as it doesn't stay in one place and its controls are laggy. You also don't get the automated fly features as those from DJI and this drone is super bulky, including its remote. Plus I practically crashed this drone because it didn't have the sensor at front which the spark and the mavic. You also benefit from a more frequent update from DJI as opposed to this drone.

I have the gopro version of this (typhoon g) and have owned every Phantom. Phantom 3 and onwards have much better WiMax range and overall usability but I found this had the best combo package because of the GoPro camera flexibility. It also comes with a handheld gimbal (8 AAs required, I use rechargeables) which is one of the best because it has a stand.

Only thing better than this (GoPro camera version) is the P4P that has the best camera I've seen on this size drone. I can't recommend the Spark or Mavic if you care about camera quality. For those who don't feel free to spend double for more portability.

Q500 4k camera is better than the Mavic or Spark but slightly worse than the P3P and P4 generations (based on footage I've edited). The difference is negligible though and a GoPro 4 Black is always preferred.

Yes, you're right but it's another $44 for tax in WA and ship w/in 2 days. B&H doesn't have tax but will deliver by the 20th with $28.60 for shipping.
