This is very ethical

We made one massive purchase through Pentax and have a deal that not even B&H can have and have made a certain quantity available to the users here.

We will ship anywhere at these prices but the 2yr extended warranty will only be valid in the CONUS.

If you have any concerns please let them be made, but these bodies are new in the box and are valid new merchandise.

I think that if this is the way the forum will work it might a good idea to add an option on the marketplace for sponsored stores instead the regular marketplace. Independently of any ethical issue, I think that this kind of things doesnt harm anybody since there is no shaddy lies behind the offer.

I wish this had been available prior to last Thursday. Let me ask you Chris, do you or can you sell the extended Pentax warranties? I have a body+kit lens on the way but the additional warranty might be of some consideration.

how about selling on ebay and accepting paypal to use M$ cashback - that will be even better, even if you will have to increase the price by ebay/paypal fees ? just my 2c... win for you, win for us, win for Pentax too.

No qualm with this at all. Great offer.
However, to Aussies, I see you can buy cheaper in Australia, due to the huge crash of the Aussie$ against the US$.
Mores the pity, as a few months (or weeks?) ago US prices were unbeatable.

We are accepting Paypal only and I don't want to sell on ebay because everyones looses since the ebay fees alone make the deal impossible.

This deal is for you loyal Pentaxians on the Pentax Forums.

We ship worldwide and use verified shipping methods and use Paypal.

I am sorry but how ebay fees can be compared w/ recent (and probably still going) M$ cashback of 30% off (up to $200) ??? am I missing any math here... you can conclude the deal here - but post the item there and let buyer pay there too.

That's 30% is long gone, it dropped to 20% and now, that seemingly is gone as well.

Now it is cheaper in Australia, about US$850 or so for body only.
However, CR Kennedy has adjusted the wholesale price about 10%. So the price in the retail shops may go a bit higher - depending on the market and how much profit they want.

Well I'll be darned. It wasn't there for me with the typical 'working' key words such as "Gold Coin" or "Nintendo Wii".

Or he can just pull the deal and no one gets it. STFU already. His products, his deals, he can do what he wants. Why are you whining about it when you're obviously not gonna take advantage of this anyway?
