K5 - Cash Back - UK

Don't know if this has been posted but Pentax UK, and possibly Europe, have a 90 cash back deal on the K5 and 100 on the Q from now up to Dec 31st with all claims to be in by Dec 15th 2012.

This would put a new K5 and grip at the same price as I got my K20 and grip for in 2008.

Soooo tempting.

The first step for increasing their market share?

Possibly, but they did this on '08 on the K20D and some lenses before the K7 was released.

I bought a K20D Kit with DA16 - 45mm and grip for (if I remember correctly) about 800 with 120 cash back from Pentax later on. VAT was still at 15% at the time as well so I got the FA77 and FA43 Ltds for 600 and 430 respectivly while I was in a spending mood.

So, new camera in the offing maybe??

There is also a cash back in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg of 100 on the K5 and the Q.
The cash back is also up to Dec 31, 2011.

I just decided to upgrade my K-x to a K5 next week

HAHA! Pentax will have to introduce a 400 cashback for me to be able to afford a K-5!

I'm so very poor these days.

That's encouraging! I'm currently saving for a K-5 to replace my aging K-x. I'm about 320 the way there!

Cash is here

Pentax cash hit my bank just under two weeks after the claim posted off.

Good eh? Got it to spend on kit in the sales now.

That's a great turnaround time - over in the US you usually have to wait well over a month!

Yeh, I was pleasantly supprised. The cash back on the K20 took about 6 weeks I think, certainly long enough that I had to think what the cheque was for when it hit my doormat.

If Santa is kind to me tomorrow morning, I may have enough to buy a K-5 as long as I reimburse the 90 straight back into my savings account. I hope!
