I am not sure about the "The perfect lightweight hybrid bike" hybrid claimed for this bike.

It looks like it was on for 298 since May. Pretty good deal if you're looking for a 45 lb cruiser.

A lot of people will jump all over these deals saying you're better off putting the $270 towards a better bike but honestly if you're gentle on the bike, don't ride it off any curbs and don't plan on taking it anything harder than a paved trail you'll probably do just fine with it.
It comes with fenders and a rear rack which save you another $50-100 and allows you to hook any type of cheap rear pannier for easier commuting. Or do it the old fashioned way and zip tie a milk crate to the rack. Once you've figured out whether you like cycling you can use this as your beater or swap out anything that breaks.
Edit: Also note you linked to the 3 speed internally geared bike which is probably a better pick for city riding unless you'll be facing a lot of hills.

Amazon is now charging AZ tax with adds $18+ to this purchase! I will need to find another internet sales place for purchases like this without the AZ tax
