k-7 rebate?

saw on amazon that they are offering an instant $100 rebate on the k-7 to a total of 1100. The Pentax Store lists the same discount though their total is $1200. Now if they would combine the rebate with last weeks pricing (bringing the total to around 1k), that would be tormenting

from the Amazon website:
$100 Instant Rebate
For a limited time, save $100 instantly on the Pentax K-7 when you buy from Price shown includes manufacturer's instant rebate. Offer valid through October 31, 2009.

The way I read it, it is "instant rebate."

Instead of officially dropping the price, Pentax uses this trick.

So you can't really "combine the rebate with last weeks pricing."

I'm still waiting....

I saw the $1100 amazon price early today as well. So tempted to jump on it. Sigh...

Ah the dream of shooting past 1600 iso...

Amazon's price has been sitting at $1100 since the weekend, but at that time, it didn't list the instant rebate, even though places like B&H and Adorama started showing a $100 IR. It's as if the Amazon price didn't budge.

The week prior to 10/1, Amazon price was yo-yoing around $1150.

BestBuy gives you a $100.00 gift card if you order the K7 from thier website.

BestBuy charges 90 something dollars for tax when you get a K7 through them.

So, you actually end up with less than 10$


I mocked up an order at BHphoto and there was no tax charge unless I lived in NY.
