Does Newegg give these types of offers often? I can't quite commit to buy yet, but $560 shipped with a lens is so hard to pass up. How long is it likely to be until another deal comes along?

well, you can get a single lens kit as low as $580 before bing cashback of 8% on ebay (prodigital2000 - as long as you can live with the 1yr intl warranty, they seem to have a good reputation). You wont get a free bag, but that choosing one yourself is half the fun anyway!

Generally yes. They come and go every few weeks. Free shipping drifts in and out too. I have lost count the number of laptops, iplayers, memory and cameras I've purchased from them. Great service.

Depending on item, I sometimes get a better price on Amazon occasionally from other reputable sellers.

Newegg is fantastic, I ordered the K-X 18-55 kit on Thursday night and got my camera Friday! Still waiting for the sling bag.

With the promtion code the breakdown was.

K-X 18-55 Kit $521
Pentax Sling Bag $39.99

Total $560.99

Beware of the 15% restocking fee charged by Newegg. According to their website return policy, if you decide you don't like the camera for whatever reason, there is a 15% restocking fee for returns.

No the bag was free it was invoiced strangely. The camera with bag was $609 with $1.99 shipping. Minus the $50 discount brought it to $560.99

I was expecting one invoice for $560.99 but got 2 invioces one for $39.99 and one for $521

The camera came from Chicago which is why I got it so quick, and the bag is scheduled for delivery tommorow from N.J.

Has anyone got their sling bag? Is it a genuine Pentax bag? Good quality?

How long did it take your order to process? I ordered the same deal last night (Sun.) at like 6pm and as of right now (Mon.) at 3:30 my order status still says processing. I live in Chicago so i'm hoping it will ship quickly once it gets past this point.

How does an international warranty differ from an American one? Also, when I searched through Bing, I had a hard time finding my way to Ebay and didn't see Prodigital(Through Bing anyhow). When you do navigate from Bing to Ebay it says you MAY receive 8% back. What does that mean? Sorry for all the questions, but it seems like a heck of a deal and I want in!

Thanks

I just tried to check out the K-x body with free sling bag and it will not accept the DSLR10B promo code.
It says promo code not valid. But - the code is good till Nov 20th.
WTH is up with that?
