Buydig on Ebay, buydig(AKA beach camera) is an authorized dealer.

Pentax K 50 Weatherproof DSLR with 18 55mm 50 200 WR Lenses Eyefi Card and Flash | eBay

Sometimes with SOME WORK you can get ebay gift cards at discount if you need to make it a bit sweeter

Hi ToyTank,

Thanks for the post. It is a killer deal for amateur photographers. However, I couldn't see any $100 ebay cards promotion though, Can you elaborate on that, thanks!!!

Yep raise or giftcardmart. It becomes a bit of a game, several places sell ebay gift cards(like bestbuy) and if they have a coupon, or cashback with certain credit cards you can bring effective price down. For awhile you could buy ebay gift cards at bestbuy for 90% face value, and use those to buy bestbuy cards from ebay for 90% face value, rinse and repeat. Usually such loop holes get closed quickly

I wouldn't buy gift cards unless you shop from eBay often. Sometimes the gift card won't be sent to you immediately and the eBay listing could end before you get it

Most of the time the cards are sent immediately but personally, I wouldn't take a chance. I would just get it without the gift card discount.

The bundle seems incentive by itself, so it's pointless to risk it. Thanks for your suggestions, Farhaddad.

I am tempted, especially the olive one looks awesome.

But from a vendor with 36 negative reviews within the last 5 days alone and 400+ over the past 12 months...?

This is normal compared to how much they sell. Adorama has 371 negative reviews in the past 12 months.

I am not supporting buydig in any way, but they also have 4151 positive reviews to the negative 36. So, less than 1% negative.

As a customer service manager who deals with Amazon and Ebay shoppers, I can tell you the vast majority of reviews are pointless - most review the product and not the seller. In many cases they are just wrong, or blame the seller for post office of FedEx problems.

Further, there seems to be no reply on Buydigs part, so we only know half the story at best. Maybe they sent replacements, maybe refunds, maybe the item turned up the next day.

(But don't blame me if your order gets messed up :-)

Maybe I should have left the gift card game out of the post

I'm bad about that and the minimum possible savings probably isn't worth the risk and hassle.

This is a pretty good deal & what makes it even nicer is the rare blue & olive color. I'm actually thinking of getting a blue one & then unloading the lenses & flash. Hmmmmm.....

ToyTank: It is still a nice reminder for someone who have had gift cards sitting somewhere in the room.
Special K: Thanks for your advice. In fact I talked one of their representatives over the phone, and yes the phone# really works! I am going to try my luck and see how it goes.
Squirrel Mafia: This is exactly what I thought.
