Samy's Ricoh $100 rebate on S1, K-50 & S2
Posted By: Oakland Rob, 11-01-2015, 01:46 PM

The $200 rebate on the K-3II has already been mentioned here, but I note that my rebate form shows $100 rebates on the cameras listed in the subject line. Sheesh, the K-50 with kit zoom is $249 after the rebate...I'm never gonna be able to sell my used one. The rebate is supposed available at other retailers via Promaster, but I never did find another one that honored the rebate besides Samy's. The offer ends 12/31.

Pentax | K-50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Zoom Lens (Black) | 10894

I think it went out of stock sometime on Sunday.

I was watching it for quite some time. It was back in stock on Saturday and I was able to place my order on Saturday evening.

Congratulation; you must have gotten the last one. Now, at that link, it says "no longer available". I'm really happy with my K-50... lots of features, and it works really well with legacy lenses. I already sold off the 18-55 lens, so after I sell off the flash and the rebate comes, I'll have my K-50 body for a song.

Happy shooting.

I contacted Promaster and got a prompt reply; I think I mentioned it in a post earlier.

Mine took about 2 weeks to get the rebate check. In the meantime no contact by Promaster about it. As long as your receipt is dated before 12-31-15 you should be okay.

I sent my rebate info by certified mail and according to USPS it just sat in Promaster's PO box for more than two weeks from December 16th. I wrote to Promaster twice (at their "talk to a human" email address) and received no reply. When I received my rebate check (it took about a month in all), it was dated on 16 December. So, no acknowledgement from them at all, even in response to email, but the check finally did arrive. I got my new Pentax K-50 for $129! (after selling off the lens and the flash that it came with).

Thanks for the info, appreciate it. Less worried about it now. Seems a month is typical and no feedback at all from them is common. Guess I will just wait...patiently

I haven't gotten my check for the rebate that I mailed out in November. I sent them an email this week and they couldn't find my rebate. They're investigating. A little disappointed though. I've never had a rebate not approved before.

got mine about a week ago so all worked out well. Guess they just got a little slow toward the end due to the amount of people sending in. I love happy endings (wipes a tear away)

I guess they were swamped. Glad it worked out. The K-50 is an amazing camera, and with $100 off? It's just crazy!

Thanks all. I was a little bummed that the rebate could have been lost but now, this is just a fantastic deal. I just need to sell the kit lens. I think i'll keep the flash. The only thing I hate on the k-50 is that the shutter is too loud. I can't shoot in a recital or play. I think I need to get something else with a silent shutter. Bummer.
