badly help needed

I am planning to buy k7 2lens kit priced $1179.98 from Welcome to Abes of Maine. But, bing cashback doesn't work with this product. I read from the forums that ppl purchased through bing cashback. Plz help me as I can save some money.

Have you checked this amazon deal? Amazon.com: Pentax K-7 14.6 MP Digital SLR with Shake Reduction and 720p HD Video with DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Weather Resistant Lens: Camera & Photo
$975 with one lens; I'm sure the second can be acquired for less than the difference individually.

You have to set up a Bing cashback account (costs nothing to do) and enter your purchase from a Bing search link. Unless the cashback is 10 or 20 percent, the price can be bettered many times.

cheapest deal

Thanks Adam. But, I found another good deal from Pentax K7 , 14.6 Megapixel Digital SLR, Digital Camera w/ 18-55mm II Lens Kit
Couple of things here, 1. Is this website reliable? and 2. Is the 18-55mm II Lens, a PENTAX WR lens?

Suggest me with this please.
Thanks

JeffJS, I already setup my live ID with bing cashback, but when tried to search the product on bing CB website it only shows Adorama.com product but not Abesofmaine.com.
Anyways today I called abesofmaine and came to know the product is unavailable.
Thanks

Then Abes Of Maine doesn't participate in the cashback program. Participation and the amount is Vendor dependent. Even with Ebay.

Thanks JeffJS. The reviews from the customers are mixed on the store, so still not sure to buy from them.

I've never heard of them...I'd go with the amazon offer just to stay on the safe side.

If it says it comes with the DA 18-55mm II, then it is not the WR version. My K-7 kit came with the WR lens (which I promptly sold ), but I don't believe they all do- and I got the camera the day it came out, pretty much.

Camera Kings is a classic bait and switch outfit. I'd avoid them at all costs. People really need to check out Resellerratings.com before making purchases online...

I'd stick with a reputable merchant like Amazon, BH or Adorama.
