price matching

chuck you have been very helpful in the past. i purchased a k5iis from you a week ago (order 434852560) and amazon has dropped the price significantly. when i purchased the camera i asked if the price dropped would they match and was told yes. now i was told that amazon is not an authorized dealer so they will not do this. i feel somewhat misled and if this is the practice then i will need to evaluate future purchases. my husband and i have been very supportive of b&h over the past few years and have purchased in addition to the k5iis, 2 K5, 2 da 60-250, da 50-135, da300, sigma 500, sigma 50-500, fa31, fa77, da 15, q , q 06 lens, q pk adapter and many accessories. can you help me..thank you.

Sorry for the confusion. Our Price Match policy loosely is: B&H will consider matching a legitimate price offering from an authorized dealer. We must be able to verify the offer and that the item is in stock. We cannot match phone quotes, coupons or any other promotional incentives.

We will need to know the name of the vendor, the item you are interested in and the advertised price.

I checked Amazon for the K5IIs.

"Sold by Emmy Photo" is not Amazon. Authorized Pentax USA dealers must list the camera per Pentax's Unilateral Price Policy which we have discussed here in the past.
"In stock on May 24, 2013" means the vendor whom ever they are does not have the camera in house and ready to ship.

I am sorry, but we are unable to match this offer.
