I just noticed on the official Pentax Australia website that the Flu card has now dropped in price from AU$149 to $99.

If you had pre-ordered you would have paid $199 plus P&H. I did and I have emailed a complaint to CRK. It will be interesting to see what comes back.

I emailed CRK complaining about the price after paying $199 plus P&H for the card about a month ago. My card was in the first shipment to arrive in Oz. Received this interesting reply from Clem Kennedy. Looks like retail price collusion on a global scale is the game.

"Hi David,

The original price ($200) was set in-line with our instructions. This was suppose to be a globally competitive price.

Unfortunately the US market broke ranks and set a very low retail price of $99.

Due to a large number of inquiries we had no choice but to follow suit here locally as well.

The US market has been warned over their actions, and I am assured this situation will not occur again in the future.
Kind regards,

Clem Kennedy

Well that's an answer with a lot of insights into how things work.

The dilemma of local distributors, right there. Your global enemies include legit overseas suppliers in addition to the gray market.
