This is a great price, however it seems unsustainable. I saw Costco is selling these with a 25% off coupon and free shipping. Assuming shipping across the country is $50 ( for oversized dim weight ), then Costco is paying no more than $150 ( probably less ). Trump's duty ( which was just removed temporarily ) makes this unsustainable. Especially since Costco's return rate will be positive, I expect it to be super high.

This is a really bad market, everyone is having a hard time. These type of deals can be seen as liquidation. This will put pressure on Citizen and other entry level competitors.

Thanks
