K-3 @ B&H: Now with free FLUCard and Grip
Posted By: Adam, 06-17-2014, 01:01 PM

B&H have added a free Pentax FLUCard (the one that gives you tethering) on top of the free grip that currently comes with the K-3. A great deal at $1196!

You can get an AF540 flash for just $100 more:

wow, what a nice deal! I'm quite happy with my K-50 but man, B&H/Adorama is making me wonder if I should jump on the K-3 train!

Do you think Pentax will pull this deal after July 1st or keep it until Photokina? I would hate to lose this deal waiting for something better that never came.

Great. I also see that there is the ability to save $300 if you add the flash AF 540fgz to this bundle. Which would mean you get all of the above + AF540FGZ for $1296. This would be a too good to be true deal. Adam do you think they will honor this? However I do see that when I add the flash the free goodies aren't showing up in the cart. So may be not. Is there a way to verify this before placing the order.

They continue to show up under the itemised "what's in the box" for the camera Shardulm.

Also, in the shopping cart you can see the camera has the B&H and MFR references next to it (in this case PEK3/15530) which refer to the specific bundles, so there should be no way they won't honour them.

And don't forget to check out the "view all deals" so you can see the lenses available you can bundle with the camera too

The B&H representative on their website's Live Chat said the deal had no expiration date so it looks as though it will last as long as stocks do - about as long as a piece of string :/

I know tell me about it. This deal is so good, will it get much better after Photokina if Pentax don't make some huge announcement? I do believe this will most likely be the bundle I get (although I will probably also grab the 10-17mm for $446).

This is really temping since few days ago they had the bundle w/o the FLUcard for same price. It's like they throw in FLUcard for free....worth $100!
If I get this bundle, I may sell the flash for $300 to lower my cost since I got a flash already!

There are manufacturer-imposed limits on how many freebies can be given out, so that's probably why you can't bundle the flash with the flucard and grip. You can, however, get the grip and flash here:

I'm so freaking bummed out over this deal. I've spent forever and a day evaluating my different purchasing options to arrive at the depressing conclusion that this awesome deal aint so awesome for us Australians. The import taxes on just the camera body only deal is going to cost about an extra $200 not including extra lense. Why do we always have to get shafted. Anyone feel like posting on a "$700 2nd hand camera and lenses" :/ FML and time to go watch ebay for more pain I guess /shrug

Well, I finally placed my order. K-3 plus grip and flu-card deal. Added the flash even though I believe there is a newer version coming. I don't see how I can go wrong paying $100 for that flash.
Despite the taxes, duty and foreign exchange, I am still saving $400-$500 compared to the best deal in Canada. The only other negative, is I lose one year of warranty compared to buying in Canada.

Now if I could only decide on a lens or two...
