B&H is selling again (temporarily?) the K5-II 18-135 mm kit for 849 USD as I saw in the last hours. 50 $ above the Black Friday price.

Worth considering even for someone in Europe. Including the import fees paid to B&H still a lower price than many times locally in EUR.
These are mostly likely Christmas returns, but I'm sure the lucky few who manage to get a piece at the sale price will be very happy as a result!

Adam that is how I got the K5II with 18-135 set up. It was the only one in stock so I assume it was a return. Sell the new lens at a great price and still get a better price for the body than black Friday!

How can they sell returns as New items?

In any case.. does anyone have a screenshot of the K5II + 18-135mm kit deal showing the 4% rewards credit during this offer? 99% sure it was there on the 29th of November when I ordered mine and the Slickdeals thread lists the 4% rewards as well. B&H is demanding a screenshot or they're not awarding the 4% credit on this offer.

I bought the kit on Nov 28th, and the 4% was there; don't have a screenshot, sorry.
What I thought is that B&H sends the credit a pair of months after the purchase, so I haven't asked for it

I thought I remember seeing it as well, though I don't have a screen shot either.

When it comes down to it, i'm not really worried about the 4%. I mean, $799 for the K-5ii w/ 18-135mm Lens is an Insane price to begin with... I'm just glad they offered such a deal and to be honest, I wouldn't have expected them to offer the 4% with the price being so low anyway.

It really could have been an honest mistake to show the 4%.

I bought the K5 II during BF for $599 and I remember reading that there wouldn't be a 4% bonus since the price was so low to begin with.

Despite the fact I have researched this thoroughly and determined there was in fact no offer of rewards points for the PEK5II18135B K5 II camera + 18-135 lens kit on 11/29/13, I have asked customer service to issue the points or their equivalent to you.

Will everyone be receiving the points or only this one patron?

I ordered the K-5ii w/ 18-135mm kit at the $799 price during Black Friday. I just received an e-mail today for a B&H Rewards gift card in the amount of $31.96 (exactly 4% of $799).

This perhaps serves as proof that these K-5ii deals were indeed eligible for the 4% rewards.

Hope everyone gets a reward

Still nothing here...

Ah, never mind! Hiding in the spam folder. Tricky!

Although, it is 4% only for the $599 camera body. None for the (greatly discounted) 50mm lens. No worries though! It means my next gear buy will be from B&H, which is sort of the point of rewards like this.

That's good news that they finally came through. Thanks for posting. Hopefully they'll finally award me the 4% soon as well..

Mine finally arrived.. what an uphill battle/ordeal just to get the 4% that was on the sale offer in the first place.

I tell you, one shouldn't have to 'fight' an uphill battle with customer support to get the company to meet the terms of the sale. That said, they are the only person I've ever had an issue with at B&H in several years of shopping there.. But, I'm thinking even if they didn't think the credit was originally part of the offer, they could have saved a lot of time, energy, and negative feelings by just coming forward and awarding it over a month ago anyways.. $31.96 has to be a drop in the bucket for B&H and I came in good faith claiming it was part of the offer (which it was as you now are getting the rewards credit too).

I recently fried a USB3 hub on accident by plugging it into a 4amp wallwart (meant for a different hub I have) when it needed just 1amp... near instant flaming action.. and acrid smoke. What a sinking feeling. I was up front with Amazon customer support and explained exactly what I did and they STILL refunded me the cost of the hub ($35) without any coaxing, hassle, or drama as an act of good will towards me (the customer).

Now THAT is outstanding customer support... way above and beyond what I expected. And I'll likely keep giving them wayyyy more than $35 worth of business this year.

Now back to enjoying the camera and having fun.. :c )

Was the 4% for the body only as well as the body + lens?
