According to a MacCentral report (“Sears pushes the iMac with new bundle advertisement“), Sears is advertising an iMac bundle that is competitive to the Apple Store‘s pricing scheme. The bundle includes a Revision D iMac and an Epson printer, which is assumed to be the Epson Stylus i740 printer. Here’s the deally yo from MacCentral:
iMac pricing at Sears was initially the centerpiece of controversy, originally set at $1299 ($100 above Apple’s suggested retail price), and then cut to $1199 and marketed as a special “discount” price. The company’s new iMac bundle offers a regular iMac combined with a “Epson printer” is priced at $1449 after a $30 rebate.
