K30 at Hunts is cheaper than Cost price for B&H !!!!

Hello,

I just got off the phone with Hershey at B&H photo and he told me that B&H can not price match k-30 price of $499 with 18-55 kit lens.

I purchase the item in 21st of April and I just feel a little burnt, specially that when I bought the k-30 at $619 from B&H it was available at hunts for $599, I wanted to support the good folks at B&H so I ignored the $20 difference and bought the camera and also bought the extra 2 years warranty.

Now the difference is $120 !

B&H said on the phone they can not match the price because it is lower than their cost.... so what am I missing here ?? Is pentax selling same products to different vendors at different costs or is Hunts just taking a loss ???

I am confused...

The price Hunt's is asking is lower than the price we paid Pentax USA for this camera+lens kit. I doubt anyone gets a better deal than B&H from Pentax USA. Either Hunt's got this from another source or they're overstocked and taking a hit to move inventory.

Henry,
In the email reply you had told me that you would ask the appropriate department to issue me a $50 gift certificate... I guess the concerned department has decided they wont be following up on that as I have not gotten a reply from you to my follow up email ... or may be you just "forgot" to convey the message .... anyhoo....

Now the Price on B&H is at 599, you think you can adjust $21 under 30 day price protection ? Or do I take my loss and treat it as a lesson learned about purchasing at B&H ?

Order number is 1025011883
