Help from an American!

I am wanting to buy 3 of the Pentax 50mm f1.4 lenses from here:

Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4 LENS with one year usa warranty |BuyDig.com

But I don't want the $75 in rebates to go to waste, plus they don't ship To Australia.

I anyone willing to buy them for me, then ship them to me in Australia?

You can keep the $75 in rebate money to pay for shipping to Australia and your time/effort.

Let me know if you can help!

Thanks, Dave

I'll pay for shipping to Australia, so this is an easy way to make a quick $75 (i.e. you can keep the rebate), plus help out a fellow pentaxian!

How does one go about getting the $75 from that? It says $25 for the lens? Not trying to be a jerk, just wondering if I'm missing something.

I'm wanting to buy 3 of them - 3x$25=$75

Cheers, Dave

I guess if I read the very first sentence I would've seen that. I could help you out on one of them but I can't swing three of them. Sorry.

No worries. Thanks for your willingness to help.

I know it's a big ask for somebody to do. I'd obviously pay straight away.

If nobody is keen, I'll just order them from B&H, and forfeit the $75 (plus pay $11 more per lens!).

I'm willing to help but I can't swing the cash. Would it work (logistically) if you order/pay for it from buydigs and have it ship to me, and then I'll Fedex or UPS it to you. I think a 3-5 days shipping is about $36. You take the $33 savings from buydigs (over B&H) and apply it to the shipping, and I apply for the rebate. I think Pentax requires me to cut out the UPC symbols from the boxes.

Yes they do. The original receipt has to go along with it as well.

Yeah, that's too messy.

Bonovox, Another option would be for me to just do the Fedex/UPS relay for you, and you deal with Pentax on the rebate. For my trouble, maybe you can get me something from buydigs. PM me.

Hi, I believe they will not allow 3 copies of same lens on one rebate.
The conditions are one rebate per household and *no groups* !!
Will you successfully argue it's not a group purchase and your household needs three copies of same lenses -- I doubt it.

The limit is five. But you would need a separate receipt and rebate form for each lens.

Thanks guys.

This is getting too complicated, so I think I'll just pay the extra and get them from B&H. Sincerely appreciate the offer to help out Song hm.

Regarding the rebate, I read it as up to five, and no requirement for sperate receipts is mentioned? I am not a "group" but an individual retail consumer. Surely what i choose to do with the lenses is of no consequence to them (i.e. I might be a collector, or have 3 camera kits, or want to use 2 of them as door stops!).

Thanks anyway, Dave
