$150 Instant Rebate!

Just got an email for Father's Day from one of the sponsors here - Adorama - that there is a $150 INSTANT REBATE on the K-5.

I think it is actually the same (or roughly the same) price as it was before. The regular price shot up for the rebate!

It is exactly the same price - I have been tracking the price for a while now. I am hoping to pull the trigger soon on the K-5. What they are doing here just smells bad IMO.

Its been $1,327.51 for while now. Looks like they jacked it up to $1,599.95 then put a $150 rebate on it -- making it $1,449.95. Pretty sad really. Makes me not want to shop there at all anymore.

If they had put the $150 IR on the $1450 making it $1300 total, or even better, on the $1328 it has been for the last month, making it $1180 , it would be a good deal.

As it stands now, they are just preying on consumer stupidity

Sorry guys, just thought I would share. Have not been tracking the price as I am still very happy with my K-x.

That is one straight up BS marketing tactic for sure!

This price is up about $100 more than earlier in the week. The 'Like New' camera was $1083. I almost bought one then. Not now though.

I'm disappointed in what Adorama has done also. I thought they were better than that.

My understanding, subject to correction, is that the Amazon Used or Open Box items do NOT come with manufacturers warranty.

That's correct but you can buy a 1 year warranty from SquareTrade for $45.
