Pentax 100 dollar rebate for K-7 program quesitons

I have a question about the 100 dollar rebate program for the Pentax K-7. I see that Amazon sells the K-7 for 1,100 compared to 1,159 from B&HPhoto. But B&HPhoto advertises the 100 dollar cashback, so does Amazon do it too since they're also authorized dealer?

EDIT: NVM, I see that Abes of Maine sells it for pretty cheap too. I am going to go for this over Amazon, have anybody ever bought from Abes of Maine before and how did it go?

Abes is an ok seller on par with Tri-States. I've bought from them and I'd buy fromt them again. I think, if you order from them, you may get a call to 'confirm' the order and may be tried to be upsold on your order but you may not either. Regardless, if I had to rate the NY/NJ online stores, I'd put Abes in a tie for third (with Tri-State) after B&H and Adorama.

I bought several items, among them a Pentax DA 10-17mm FE and a Canon HF100, from Abes of Maine and have had no problem whatsoever. I did not even get the call to 'confirm' the order.

I ordered there Monday. Got a call Monday, and a call Tuesday on my answering machine (neither of which I returned) and the camera shipped Tuesday night. It will be arriving today.

IMO, that's not cool at all. And if it hadn't shipped by Tuesday evening I would have canceled the order.

Abes, if you ever read this, don't do that.

Thanks for all the replies you guys, I will probably order my K-7 at Abes of Maines then. My paycheck is coming tomorrow and I'm going to order my K-7 on Monday. I can't wait, does the battery grip do anything else besides adding more usage time to the camera and making verticle shots more easy?
