same pack is $25 at Costco,
This review is from: Sanyo Eneloop Ni-MH Charger and 8 Rechargeable AA and 4 Rechargeable AAA Batteries (Electronics)
This pack was created specifically for Costco stores, where it costs $25 (sometimes $21 on sale). You have to decide for yourself if the 50% markup is worth the convenience of not having to deal with Costco.

Yep, still there as of 8/22. Note that the included charger is pretty lame (charging four AAs at 300mA or four AAAs at 150mA, and only in pairs). It's slightly better than nothing, but fortunately this bundle is bargain-priced even if you consider only the batteries and not the charger.

Really appreciate this information, I rarely get to COSTCO, but am going with a friend next week..so I can save the money, and buy them there! This is why I love Reviews!

Thanks! As of 8/31 the price is still valid. I went after I read this review and got it, even with tax I still saved.

I just came back from COSTCO (Brooklyn, NY) and it is still on sale for $25.99! Great deal! At first, I did not buy it because I believed that I can get this package on the Amazon.com cheaper. Well, I made a little mistake. Now, I have to go back! :)

Thanks for letting us know, I got it at Costco for way cheaper than this seller is pricing it at.
I hate when those crook resellers try to game people with things from Costco. I've seen that a lot here on Amazon.

Not everyone has a a Costco store nearby or a Costco membership. I wouldn't consider Amazon (or their sellers) to be "crooks". Sometimes I'm even happy to pay (slightly) more for something from Amazon just to avoid having to go to Costco and waiting in line there. YMMV.

I am not saying Amazon are crooks, nor most of their resellers. But buying from Costco so you can resell on the Internet for a profit is of questionable ethics and unlawful. And I have seen that a lot. In addition there is a lot of discussion online about this, I'm not making this stuff up.
