Of course, just hours after I ordered one! Well, maybe they won't process it until morning...

E-mail B&H and they will refund you the difference in price. They have a 30-day price guarantee.

This is very good news - I am in central Manhattan today, and I am going to be doing some long planned camera shopping

I had the bundle up this morning on the web page with the flash and $100 off. Went to check out a few minutes ago and the bundle was gone- just the camera showed up in the cart. Talked to them just now and he said all they could do was the body and a 32gb card. He said the flash was an bundled package from Pentax that is no longer available.

Too bad they won't offer it for even less without the free goodies.

Looks like K-3 freebies are gone. I'm on the phone with B&H to see if anything can be done

B&H may be able to add a lens to the kit next week, will keep you guys posted.

In the mean time, Adorama has added a free FluCard and 2-day shipping to the K-3 deal:

Thanks, Adam - I'll do that!

On the plus side, it looks like I was the last person to get the bundle deal with 540 flash and 32GB card. Not bad either way.

They might ask for the freebies back since the new price doesn't include them- but it's worth a shot to ask!

Adam since you seem to have the inside knowledge... Do you know if the $100 discount is good for the whole month of May? It seems that the deals/combos are actually provided by Pentax from what B&H has said on the phone, and B&H sometimes also add their own extras to the mix. Missed the grip combo 2 months ago by waiting to the first and now the flash, same thing. Already have a K-3 and love it, maybe too much, but need to send it in for calibration. My goal is to save up for the Sigma 500 f/4.5 but think it is worth the wait to save some more and pick up a second body first and have my existing K-3 calibrated then pick up the Sigma. Thanks for any information you can provide on how long the discount may last!

They were very nice - they already shipped the freebies, AND they refunded me $100. Outstanding customer service, B&H!

There's no expiration date indicated, so I think it will be around at least for the whole month.
