Canada: D-BG6 Battery Grip marked down by $100.02 CAD at Amazon.ca
Posted By: pete-tarmigan, 01-08-2019, 07:40 AM

I just bought the D-BG6 for $179.97 Canadian dollars; eligible for free shipping, which I selected. The list price is $279.99 CAD, which is occasionally marked down by $40 at various retailers in Canada. The website shows 5 left.

Yes, Amazon was the seller. However, shortly afterward, Camera Canada matched Amazon's price briefly.

Damn, I missed it. at $229 now, still better than usual but I've got a camel tracker on it now in case it comes down again.

I received my order today -- unfortunately Amazon shipped the wrong item. They sent the D-BG7 instead of the D-BG6, despite the Ricoh label on the box indicating it is the D-BG7, not the D-BG6. Amazon's own label on the box suggests, erroneously, that the item is the D-BG6. The rest of their "D-BG6" stock is probably also D-BG7 too. Probably a result of Jeff Bezos' relentless demand for productivity over and above what is humanly possible.

Weird... is Amazon going to honour the price on the D-BG6 or just refund you?

I think they fully intended to sell the D-BG6 for that sale price, because they listed the correct MSRP. However, I suppose it is a possibility that Amazon made a decision to discount the D-BG6 based on a number of units in their inventory that was erroneous. I have returned the mis-labelled D-BG7 and they say they have shipped a D-BG6. Before the replacement shippped I contacted customer service to warn them of the possibility that other D-BG7s in their warehouse were mis-labelled and that they should confirm that they have a D-BG6 before they pack it into a shipping box. It has been shipped, so we'll see whether the warehouse got the message. It's forecast to arrive on February 4th.

I've ordered one from Camera Canada. Even with shipping still over $40 cheaper than in the US.

Amazon delivered the replacement on January 31st. This time they sent the right model. It didn't have an Amazon inventory sticker on it, though.

The sale for $100 off was the first time I had seen Amazon.ca discount the D-BG6 more than $40. However, I don't check Amazon.ca very often, so I could have missed it.
