I got the missed deal blues... K3 + GRIP + AF540 X2

You probably won't be able to answer this... but
I figured I'd ask anyway...

I have been kicking myself about this for 2 weeks now...
I saw this deal: "Pentax K3 Body Bundles with FS: $996 with Battery Grip and AF540FGZ Flash (B&H) - Add a 2nd AF540FGZ flash for $80!"
I loved it cause I wanted 2 flashes and a new K3 and battery grip. It was perfect! So I begged the wife, got some cash lined up. Then of course it was a dead deal.

Any guesses if a deal like this will come around again? perhaps after holiday?
Any chances on getting 2 flashes, k3, and grip together for around this price or a little more?

If I shouldn't have asked this, I apologize..

Thanks,
Randy

No matter what, a happy B&H customer!

B&H is closed until Monday. However, the deal is still around with only a marginal price increase.

First, start with this kit:
Pentax K-3 DSLR Camera Body 15530 B&H Photo Video

Then, click on "Save Over $300 On The Pentax AF-540 Shoe Mount Flash" under the "savings available" heading to the left of the price.

Final price for the body, grip and flash = $1046.95. No dice on a second flash, though. That deal expired/was pulled very quickly.

A little too late or a little too early!

Hey Adam,

So I did like you recommended and ordered the camera and flash. I ordered with the link in your post then added the flash.
It's been shipped but not delivered.
I see now it's $100 cheaper, one of the main reasons I buy from B&H is because of you excelling price matching.
Just curious how to proceed?

Thanks!
Randy

Thanks Henry!
Email sent...
You guys rock...
Instead of the $100, you can just send me a couple of those $50 AF540 flashes
