Fry's K-r blowout, dual lens kit $299

I don't work for Fry's but I thought I would mention this

Not sure who made that banner, as the camera is listed for $529.

Who made it ? The link is from Frys.com

If you add it to your cart it's $299 .
They won't ship it, so this might be a local promotion only in Silicon valley.
The Fry's system is updating right now so I cannot check inventory. I suspect there isn't a lot.
It does say the sale includes some open boxes and demo units.

They also have red single lens kit for $299 .

I get a system error at the "Store Pickup - Find a Store" page. Oh well.... I'm just sitting here telling myself, "You don't need another camera... you don't need another camera."

Hmm, that's weird! For me it still says $529.

Edit: Ah, looks like it's only for the two-lens kit. If you get a regular black or red one it's $529, lol.

Yes, Fry's system is updating .. It's their new weekly promotion and they start on friday.

At this price I think I am going to pick one up. If I wake up early enough tomorrow morning to grab one.
I don't need the lenses and these can probably be sold for more than half the cost of the kit ...

Adam, are you looking at the third option (the one with 2 lens kit)?

I got my K-r at Frys last summer. They also match Internet pricing. I have bought 2 cameras from them so far and they matched the lowest on-line store price for me.
And they do have some really great weekly specials. I also got a great deal on a tripod there.

You'd think that the one-lens kit would be cheaper.

That price is nuts! If I had one of those shops near me, I'd buy one as a backup body at that price. Damn. A nice, shiny red one...

All of the stores near me say zero available, and you can only do store pickup. I also checked San Jose, CA and vicinity and zero as well. I wonder where they have any.
