Adorama email with K-1 for 1449.95?
Posted By: rrstuff, 05-10-2016, 10:33 PM

The website still shows $1800. i am wondering if this is a sign of prices to come, or just an error?
Looks quite intentional... no matter if true or not.

Email was definitely from Adorama.
BTW, Adorama had Sony a7 on their website for under $400 a couple of weeks ago. The problem was that I could not manage to put one into my cart.

Are we sure the e-mail the OP received wasn't a spoof/phishing communication?
We have an apology from Adorama a few posts further back up in this thread.

This was caused because the Sony had a rebate attached; Sony's prices changed while we were closed for the Passover Holiday - so the total price reflected the lowered price AND the rebate together. This took the final price way below Sony MAP. A different issue from this one which was a design grid issue; it should have been caught by the email team before the mailing was sent. I have expressed in the strongest possible terms my disatisfaction that it was not.

Spoke to them. They do not want to honor the price in their own email promotion. Lame.
As per my previous posting, it was a design grid error. Please note that our terms and conditions make note of our policy concerning typographical errors. Ordering from the Adorama website confirms your acceptance of those terms and conditions: http://www.adorama.com/help/termsAndConditions

People!!

It was a typo. A mistake! Don't you make those too? Or, did you cut off the erasers from the ends of your pencils and pry out the delete key on your keyboard? Let it go. Close the thread.

Sooo...I'm NOT the only one that does that to erasers...if it makes you feel any better, I hear Helen from Adorama tied up "Hank" in Web Page Proofing and subjected him to a slideshow of squirrel pictures from a forum member who will go un-named...he still twitches going down the nut aisle for groceries...

Not knocking either Adorama or you, Helen. Adorama is one of the 2 photography stores that I enjoy dealing with.

Words of wisdom. I was waiting for the conversation to veer off into "the walk on the moon was staged!"
