New Pentax Price Alert Feature

Get a notification when an item goes on sale

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Nov 12, 2017

With the holidays coming up, there are bound to be plenty of juicy Pentax deals in the near future— many have already been posted in our deal forum.

To help you stay on top of the savings you're most interested in, we've added a price alert system that sends you an e-mail once the price of a camera or lens drops below the threshold you specify.  We currently track daily Pentax prices at four major US Pentax dealers: B&H Photo, Adorama, Amazon, and Ricoh's own Pentax web store.  We plan to add UK, Australian, and Canadian stores in the future.  During the holiday season, we'll be checking prices multiple times each day.

To sign up for a price alert, head over to our deal finder (under Resources in the navbar) and click on the link next to the item you're interested in.  Enter your e-mail and the desired price in the popup form, and you're all set!

Click here to sign up for price alerts now

Note that you may need to adjust the filter criteria in the table in order to see all the items we track. Each alert will only generate a single e-mail once the price drops to or below your threshold.  If you're not ready to buy the item right away, you have the option of signing up anew.
