I've seen this model at my local Costco (South FL) for $550 and go on sale for $500. Never for $400. Might drop by and see if its cheaper in store. Not a bad price considering you're getting a Yamaha engine and the parallel kit is included.

Genuine Yamaha motor in this one, and definitely the cheapest I've seen it. Plus Costco peace of mind.

The other A-iPower ones are apparently Yamaha clones (like the one I got for $250 awhile back at Sams on a different SD).

Very tempting since I know I could probably parallel the two units.

Reviews are overall positive, basically half price of Honda for a Yamaha with Costco return policy.

I would suggest adding costco and Yamaha engine to thread title for visibility.

I got lucky, it was marked $349.99 at my costco, so I bought one. After checkout I reviewed the receipt, noticed I was charged $399.99. I had already taken a picture of the tag at my costco, I showed customer service, they went and got the tag, did a refund and rebuy at $349.99 what a deal!

Probably very YYMV but its possible some other costco's have it mismarked and will honor this price.

I just saw these in store last week. They didn't have them for a while, but they just recently got them back in stock and there were quite a few.

Should handle fine.

Tempting but I don't think I've ever seen these at my Costco.

My Costco didn't have it for sale $399.99, but I talked to the manager and they gave me the sale price since it was online for that price.

Thanks op. Picked up the last one at my Costco. Reviews are generally good but a few people seem to have gotten lemons and cs is not good. Hope that I'm not one of the unlucky ones.

I saw a couple unhappy reviews, but the rest are great. Costco's return policy is stellar. I am very happy with mine, very nice for the price.
