Looks like the sale on the Q7 is over

I hope those of you who were considering the $199 Q7 sale from Pentax did not procrastinate as it looks like the sale is over, at least for now.

oooppsss....I procrastinated since I wasn't sure which kit I wanted to buy The Pentax Webstore just saved me $199.00 or $399.00 . That's OK. I just spent $300 for food and toys for my birds.

yeah... um what?? If it is a cyber monday sale, shouldn't it last until 11:59 pm? Why are things on sale being taken off?

The web store closes at 4pm est, so I guess they decided to pull the deals at closing time. Not too surprising given the low prices offered!

aw, come on... not everyone can buy things during the day, e.g. they are at work or something. They come home and realize the deal is gone... a whole day deal would be expected to last until midnight

It is strange since most cyber sales continue until 11:59EST even if the web store/customer service is closed. With some stores the sales are even lasting longer depending on the stores' locations/time zones.

Actually the Pentax sale was a Black Friday sale which started on Friday and they ran all through the weekend. That gave folks three days to buy instead of one Cyber Monday. I will always prefer a three day sale to a hurried one day sale.

I know of three people who purchased Q7's from this sale based on my recommendation and not one of them owned a Pentax camera before making their purchases.

These were Black Friday Specials but based on the information on the sales info page here "All Pentax Black Friday deals expire on Monday, December 1st at 11:59PM US Eastern Time."

Obviously not the case when it came to the Pentax web store
