I`m also from Argentina and also have a friend that travelled to Miami, and I also chose this camera . I found that the best way to buy it was B&H online(not the best price but it "feels" secure from Argentina, because it is an old photo store in NY) and send it to another friend`s house there in Miami (you cannot send packages to hotels). It was u$s 360. And a Sandisk Ultra II 1Gb for u$s 99. And u$s 18 for an 2-Day UPS delivery service. That was my choice (I`m still wainting for my friend to come back).
I think If you buy it in a store you will pay u$s400 for the camera and 120/130 for the memory card.
I hope this answer could help you.
In Argentina you can buy it for u$s 500 in mercadolibre.com or deremate.com .

I got my A85 there for pretty much as cheap as I could find it online. I always buy online. You get ripped off by places like Best Buy.....go there to hold the camera and check out the features but I never buy from there if I can avoid it.

Try BrandsMart. They have a few stores in South FL.
You can call them first to see if they sell the A95.

I have used Newegg.com on a number of occasions for computer parts and have been very happy with their service. They ship the order fast, and if there is any problem with the item, they have no problem replacing it...and at their own cost (i.e., they pay the shipping cost). From what I have seen, they also have very good prices.

Good luck finding a store! :)
