K-7 still has the in box rebates form?

Hi, I just got my 2 k-7's, non of them had the in box rebate form for pentax profucts. Is the rebate discontinued? Or I should ask Amazon why the forms are missing?(I suppose Amazon.com does not sell grey market things) thanks!

While this is the first time I heard of the rebate, a quick google showed that it might be discontinued

Pentax feeds your LBA with the K-7 and $100 VISA rebates - 1001 Noisy Cameras

But I can't be sure seeing as this is the first time I've ever heard of it.

I got my K7 body, 18-55 WR and 50-200 WR lenses all from an authorized dealer on one receipt about a month ago and I didn't get any forms

3) We are including a rebate coupon with all K-7's shipped in the US (if you don't get the coupon, you likely have a grey market camera). They are numbered, and no copies are accepted (to keep fraud down). The rebate is paid out in the form of a Visa gift card. The coupon includes the following:

DA 17-70 - $90
DA 55-300 - $60
DA 10-17 - $90
DA 40 Limited - $60
DA* 16-50 - $100
AF 360FGZ - $25
AF 540FGZ - $25
8x36 DCF NV binos - $30
10x36 DCF NV binos - $30
8x25 UCF WP - $20
10x25 UCF WP - $20
it is an IN BOX rebate form, not the rebate which ended in January. I didn't get it, but i remember just one month ago there was one for sale in the marketplace so I guess it should still be available.

this is a picture I found that shows what should come with the K-7, the leftmost card is the rebate card.

Oops my bad, my link is irrelevant then. If someone were to get an in box rebate then would it still be valid?....when does it expire?

Did the camera ship direct from amazon or from someone else through Amazon, I'm just wondering because now I fear I might have a grey market camera (would serve me right given the price I got, but a little unsettling seeing I bought from an AD with no mention of it being an import model)

I can't find anything online about the in box rebate problem

i bought it from Amazon directly, not from the other sellers. take a look at this:

and this:

as JCPentax said, if you don't get the coupon, you likely have a grey market camera... but i do believe that Amazon does not sell grey market things.

Amazon doesn't sell grey market, but third party sellers on Amazon do.

The K-x rebates expired today

I bought mine from a reseller on ebay (stated to be either a store demo or return) - likely meaning it is older stock (photome indicated 279 shutter actuations, looked new to me, very happy with it!). Anyway, perhaps they stopped putting the cards in with the newer shipments. The one I bought had the card (likely since it was older stock), which is good through the end of the year (12/31/10); would have been happy to send it to someone, but it and bing cashback ending friday prompted me to pick up a 17-70 on ebay, damn you bing cashback!
