I was in Sams Club yesterday and on three electronic items I price checked to Amazon.com, every one was CHEAPER by $10 to $30 at Amazon.com. This morning I’m noticing that Costco has the Nikon D40 for 9.99 – and sure enough Amazon beats them by (but Riz Camera actually has them all beat by $150! – – Oops: Just noticed that the 55-200 lens does not have VR image stabilization and my sister say’s don’t buy a telephoto without it – so it’s only a good deal if you don’t want VR). Someone please explain what purpose these warehouse clubs have other than offering gigantic sized portions of pizza sauce, toilet tissue and Diet Pepsi.
(Check out the next page to see what I’ve started to use these warehouse clubs for)…
There is one thing that I find the clubs like Sam’s good for.
They provide a free lunch for my kids.
On several occasions I’ve made trips to Sam’s solely to feed the kids some lunch. Of course I walk in with the intention of buying $25 worth of needed household supplies and walk out with $350.
I use the mobile version of the Amazon site on my iPhone which allows me to lookup prices from within any store. Next time you’re out shopping, try comparing the price to what Amazon offers. You could be very pleasantly surprised.

Tip: Access the iPhone version of Amazon.com via the regular http://www.amazon.com and Amazon properly formats their site for the iPhone
