Just an FYI, Best Buy's website is selling refurb K20D bodies for $499. There's always a chance they might be trying to push excess new inventory as discounted "refurbs."

Why don't they give 1 year or 3 year warranty then?

BestBuy refurbs have what 90 days? Look at their site. K20D has a 3 year warranty thru 7-31-09, not 3 months.

That's what a cheap Square Trade extended warranty is for.

All I'm saying is that I bought a "refurb" K100D last year and I would bet good money that it was a new, retail K100D with refurb stickers slapped on it. Selling new products that a company wants to liquidate as refurbs is a pretty common practice in the retail world. I'd take the refurb and money in my pocket over having to find a way to dump the kit lens and still spending more than the refurb w/ extended warranty. To each their own, though.

The extended warrenty is one of the biggest money making scams EVER!

the deal from bestbuy.com is awesome. Compare this to the A$1091 Samsung GX20 from Teds, this is rock.

I will get one soon, have something to do while waiting for the k7 price to drop a bit

Me? I wasn't late to the $669 Party

I saw the $669 deal in walmart cart and then checked again yesterday and its up $60 and of course plus local fees too so add in another $54.75 for a total of $785:

About $96 more than I paid for my K20D a few months ago with same 3 year factory warranty.

I don't/didn't want another K20D for $669 or now $729 plus local fees. Another Free kit lens, who cares? Everyone says they're great compared to other branded kit glass yet no one uses them. I already own 2 metal mount kit lenses, I do not need a 3rd one.

Still a good link you posted. Shows you & everyone else that when a good price is posted one should act quickly before Pentax enforces their M.A.P. policy:

Minimum Advertised Price

Same thing happened when I posted my buy in price on K20D last November. I bought first, then I bragged about it online and next morning deal was terminated at my buy in price point. In 10 hours it popped back up a full $100 Bill, just like that.

it was 669.99 + 46 for me.. $715.99 total with the lens + body + 3 year warranty...

they just changed the price a day later since, I imagine, it was selling VERY well at 669

I sense this is like the BestBuy $600-D200 deal that won't appear again.
