This was briefly mentioned in the thread about the costco dumbells but the price has dropped by another $100. Costco now has the nautilus nt-cc1 smith machine for $199.97. I bought one yesterday from the danvers MA store (only store in area with any stock) - $100 less that is was selling for a week ago and maybe 1/4 of the original price. See http://forums.johnstonefitness.com/showthread.php?s=1690fdcc427f89d086ed10a934b4c223&t=11780&page=1&pp=20 ffor a thread on the machine. Oh yeah, and bring a large vehicle and some extra help, the 5 boxes weight almost 700lbs.

i have this machine and love it, got it about a month ago for 299 at costco, it a no brainer if you can find it for 199. one last thing, its built like a bick shi* house.

What is the SKU # on the receipt?

Anyone know how tall is this thing exactly, my roon is only about 7'. thanks

None in the Seattle area, there is one in Juneau, AK

is it this one? which looks somewhat different from the previous picture shown

Nope, not the same machine. The one for $199 is a Nautilus. Similar though.

The SKU is 797636

Now only if I could find one. Checked all Costco's in my area and they are all out.

What a saga. I live in the northern Chicago ‘burbs. I called around yesterday at lunch and they had one left in the Lake Zurich store. I go there last night and it was already sold. They look on the computer and tell me there are 10 in Glenview and 2 in Niles, but that’s it for the entire Chicagoland area.

I (literally) race over to the Glenview store before it closes (what stores close at 8:30?? Sheesh!!). All I can find (as the lights are going out in the store) is the demo unit (banged up, no manuals/boxes, I didn’t see all the attachments, etc.). I go up front and am told someone had purchased 9 units, all that was left was the demo. I ask about Niles, they call and say that there are three left (including the demo unit). That store is also closed, but they refuse to place one on hold for today.

Anyway, I end up driving all the way to the Niles store this morning to be there when it opens. I got one of the last two. They told me they sold 11 yesterday. Went to check out and the girl wouldn’t believe (literally) that it was only $199. She ends up calling a manager to verify the price. He looked at it and laughed that he’s seen enough of these the last few days to indeed know that it is $199. Guy who helped me put it on the cart and then into my SUV didn’t seem too pleased with the number of units they sold (and that he had to help load) the last few days….

Anyway, there’s one left in the Niles store if someone is still interested.

Thanks drboom - It's a present for my son - you saved me some serious ca$h!!

Just a caution, Smith Machine's force you to lift on a somewhat unnatural straight line path. This can increase the risk of injury and does not develop secondary stabilizing muscles as well as free weights do. For $200 you can do a nice free weight setup if you look. I spent $40 on some plates, bars, dumbbells and a bench on eBay, which is plenty to get started. Not fancy stuff, but it's just weight... I just need to find a deal on a power/squat rack now. I used to use a smith machine at an apartment complex before I bought a house, but I like free weights a lot better.

I called my local Costco(CT), and they had it in stock, but for $299. Does costco PM to it's other stores?(I've seen this answered about Sam's, but don't remember anything about costco) Usually the prices at Costco are pretty uniform.

yes they do pm their website

Unfortunately they don't have the item on their website, but it seems to be different prices at different stores. Is it possible to get them to match the price from another one of their stores?


Niles Store: Nautilus NT-CC1
I just bought two there and they still had a few.
You must have missed them. They had two on the racks and
several up front. $199

OOS in Sacramento Area

Most of Northern NJ Stores except Wharton have at least (1).

The caveat is all but hackensack at $199 have it for $299. The wayne store has (1) demo left, and they pricematched hackensack for me when i stopped by today.

i called one costco and the lady said they have none but she said that there's one at another costco nearby. i called that costco and the guy said "oh, the nautilus. we don't have it". <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0> prolly hiding it LOL

OOS at Niles, IL
