You will be overcharged anytime and everytime you go for a "package deal".
Tell them specifically what you want - or better yet do it yourself if you can.
You need an oil and filter change - should be less than $50 if dino (conventional) oil is used which is almost certainly the case. Also, check the air in the tires and all fluid levels - this you can definitely do yourself.
Rotate tires? - I do not do it unless and until there are signs of uneven wear. People will undoubtedly argue six different ways from Sunday on this topic, but I have never had a problem in 50 years of driving.
You sound like you are worried too much about what the "dealer will think or do".
It's your car and your money - you and I are keeping the dealers in business.
