Best deals on K-x (body only or w/18-55)

Any recent good deals on the K-x body only or with the 18-55? Only interested in black.

Thanks.

Just found the 18-55 kit for $585 at Walmart. $1 shipping, with 30-day return policy. Seems good, but I've never bought any camera equipment there. Anyone had good or bad experiences worth sharing?

Oops, forgot to say the $585 is with Bing 10% cash back.

Newegg is doing 10% Bing cashback on 11/25 for one day only. They've got the white K-x kit at $629.00. With cashback it'll be about $575.00.

Ah, only problem is I live in CA so I'll pay sales tax on a Newegg order, which would make it more expensive than the current deal at Walmart. Thanks for the tip, though.

FYI Walmart also has body-only for $600, minus $60 cash-back = $540. That's the cheapest price I've seen on the body yet (but I haven't been looking that long). Probably worth the extra $45 to get the kit lens, though.

I was about to pull the trigger on that deal this evening until I got to the part where they add the sales tax - 6% in Maryland. For less than $20 more I can get the kit from Amazon.

Good catch. Do they add sales tax everywhere, or just Maryland? Last time I checked Amazon, they were out of stock.

As I understand it, if the seller has a brick and mortar store located in your state, then you have to pay the state sales tax for a delivery to that state. Anybody live in a state without a Walmart???

so do i have to search for the item through bing.com to be able to get the cash back? i'm wanting to get the camera through newegg, but i'd also like to get the cash back. thanks.

you will have to go to bing.com/cashback - click on the 'cashback stores' link on the upper left side, find newegg in the list (it is an alphabetical listing) and select their link - it will then take you to the newegg site for purchasing whatever you want!
