Casio G-Shock GW-5035A-1 Limited Edition at Macy's $263, Free Shipping

Casio brought out some new limited edition G-Shocks recently [g-central.com].

One of them, the GW-5035A-1 is particularly nice. It's solar, atomic, has a screw-down back, reverse display, and has the DLC coatings usually reserved for the outrageously-priced G-Shocks. It's a heritage model, and I like it because I was born in 1983 when the GW-5000 was first released.

This watch was initially intended only to be released in Japan. Casio is doing a limited run of these watches in the US also. Ebay has them for $400+, shopcasio.com has them "coming soon" for $350 shipped. Macy's will sell you one today for $263 shipped, before tax and cashback.

Here's how:

1. Start here at Slickdeals, click "Shop Macy's now to save!" and sign up for a new Macys account. Make sure the sign up page says at the top "We'll email you an EXTRA 25% OFF your next purchase!*" If you don't get taken to a page to sign up for a new account, clear your Macys cookies and try again.

2. After creating your new account, your 25% off coupon will be immediately sent to you.

3. Click here [macys.com] to get to the watch.

4. At checkout, apply your coupon and pay with your Chase Freedom if you have it. Macy's is a department store so you'll earn an additional 5% back in UR.

My deal was: $262.50 + $18.38 in tax +5% Chase Ultimate Rewards.

Also note, this is a limited item. It goes in and out of stock frequently, but I wouldn't expect this deal to last beyond today.

Even without the Ultimate Rewards, this is still the best deal available on this watch. Good luck!

Edit: I just noticed that a mod edited my deal to remove mention of getting up to 10% cash back from other places. Tsk tsk.

Lol, I take it you've never heard of the Casio Frogman? Those can go for over $1k for the limited edition runs.

I get that Casio is a brand that Walmart carries, but Walmart also carries Seiko watches that get very [amazon.com] expensive [us.com], indeed [seikousa.com].

Just tried to get it, it says unavailable. Weird, it was fine just a minute ago.

Checking periodically through the day is useful. I saw it go in and out of stock 3-4 times after I ordered, but before I posted this deal.

If the face and display weren't so ... ugly. This looks more like the plain casio line, not G.Shock

Sorry, I should have expressed myself better. What I meant was NORMAL G-shock... frogman is basically a diving computer...

Does this do much more than my $50 SD GW9600-1 http://www.casio.com/products/arc...k/gw6900-1 does?
