K-30 Pricing confusion

Thru April the K-30 price was $619 w/kit lens. May 1 comes along and Pentax announces "new rebates and pricing" and low and behold the k-30 jumps to $746 less the $100 rebate to $646 w/kit lens. On the other hand the WR version is now only $50 difference but at the expense of the kit version. Was the $619 price a promo or what happened between 4/30 and 5/1? Something doesn't seem right in all this. Not faulting B&H as I would presume Pentax made this call.

I cannot say with 100% certainty but with Pentax's unilateral price policies our flexibility on prices is limited. It's been a pattern for the past few years among several camera distributors to couple rebates with price increases, either to retailers' wholesale prices or to the MAP or unilateral prices. Either way, our options are limited.
