- Nikon D5200 with kit lens for $896.95
- Purchase the Olympus OMD EM5 and you can get lenses at a reduced price.
- Transcend 32GB SD card for $62.95
- Canon Cinema Prime Lens kit for $15,1250
Is this offer only in the US?
I purchased the Olympus OM-D E-M5 in August, when a similar rebate was offered. I got the body, a 17mm lens, and a 12-50 lens from Amazon, but the supplier, Sunset Electronics, amalgamated the order into a body w/ 12-50 lens, plus the additional lens.
The people fulfilling the rebates for Olympus, rebateaccess.com, claimed that I was only eligible for a rebate on one lens, rather than on two. In fact, though they claim to have sent out a rebate, I had not received it by mid-November, which was the reason I contacted them.
Today I have finally cleared up the situation by communicating directly with Olympus, I am told the two rebates will be coming to me shortly.
Remember, even in the best of circumstances, pay-later rebates are a mechanism to part you from your money now, and limit your rebate later, once it’s too late to change your mind and return your purchase.
@Marhoon, I’m in Canada and the rebate applies. For other places, read the rules or call and verify.
Disregarding the rebate problem, I love my Olympus. It’s almost as good an image as my 5D MkII, bokeh is good, and it’s a lot smaller and lighter. Great for carrying around!.
