If that is the case the credit card I used for it does retroactive price matching for up to 6 months. And yep, I got it from Adorama, but when I click on it it goes to the normally priced one.

If you'd checked the new posts sidebar, you'd have seen it - both this and the other post are visible, top and bottom.

Im amazed that slipped through. I was definitely quite surprised when I saw it. Thinking I've haven't even received it and it's already marked down!!! :/



Thank you for the image link btw!

i wouldn't get to excited. If you click on the other items in the email, all those prices line up with what the website says. However, when you click on the K-1 the price on the website is still the 1796.00 and doesn't match the add price. I believe this to be a misprint based on the difference between the email flyer and the website.

They are the worst with their bogus emails. A few months ago they sent out an email advertising something like a $400 Fender Telecaster and used a picture from a $800 model. Click bait

They admitted it was a mistake and will fix it. Didn't even really get a thank you for letting use know either.

I bet they didn't thank you because it wasn't a mistake.

Thanks for the info.

Some site price searchers will take you to their site with that lower price...which pulls in viewers. Dirty trick or mistake? I run across this a lot lately.
I respect Adorama, always had great dealings with them...I'm gonna assume it was a legitimate mistake.

Regards!
