FYI, it has been reported that the $100 rebate only applied if you have an actual card from the show and that the downloaded pdf copy will not be accepted. Hopefully Pentax will change their stance on the matter, but for now that seems to be their position.

I think this rebate might alienate quite a few people who are unaware that you need the actual card from the show... Last time around you needed a card as well but they were in the box.

Well assuming what Adam post is correct (and I have no reason not to believe it), then BHphoto is the guilty party for directly implying that the pdf can be used and advertising it as such. If Pentax wanted to do a special promo for the show, that's one thing. But to post PDF copies of the rebate form if they're not going to be accepted, that's something entirely different.

You should ask that they close this thread (use the mod contact form) instead of having it deleted, as then people who were earlier mislead will get the answers they need.

I personally think that bh either screwed up, or just wants to make more sales.

Or B&H has a stack of 50 cards for the 50 K-5 they got from Pentax to sell.

I think B&H would have access to the cards handed out at a major show in their neck of the woods.

I got a special deal , $100 off additional, when I bought my K20D from B&H, and as B&H is Pentax USA's #1 distributor I think B&H has the $100 cards.

I've read all they got was 50 K-5 to start with.

People should wait for the rumored $200 and $300 off K-5 that has not fleshed out as fact, yet.

Any idea when the K-5 price drop is supposed to occur ?
I read about the K-5 price drop at several sites.
I'm surprised anyone wants to pay full K-5 price in USA in October 2010.

Just did. Also asked THE MOD to update it with the latest 'RUMOR CONTROL' he has re: PENTAX $100 REBATE @ B&h FOR K5 and K-R bodies and kits.

Forum rumors are a drop in December, depending on the dollar market value on the world trading market.

The USA is sucking hind t*t on this one. First time in my memory (and I'm OLD!)

The facts of this issue have not been verified. We advise that you contact B&H directly for their opinion on the matter before purchasing.
