Hello Ben,
First of all thank you for taking my call this morning. I'm sorry, but I've confirmed that your order didn't meet all of the qualifications for receiving the free lens promotional offer that exists today.
I appreciate your graciousness as I shared this news with you over the phone.

Morals aside, you can still return the camera to Amazon and get full refund. The choice is yours. If your camera is functional and you are satisfied with its performance, then keep it.

Amazon accepts returns within the 30 day policy, and right now I believe it's extended to the end of January (as they do every year).

Even beyond the 30-day return timeline they take returns, but then they prorate based on useage time.

Amazon has a subsidiary called "Warehouse Deals" where the returns end up if they have been used, or are no longer in their original sealed packaging. Nikon gear doesn't last long at Warehouse deals, and they are still making money on the resells... I've seen killer deals there before too.

I'd have no qualms returning the camera.
Go online, request a refund via "your orders" and print the UPS label. Somewhere in the path of information you can request an "exchange" if you choose that. May save you on the return shipping.

I was pretty sure they didn't have a price protection policy but that bit about not being able to return camera gear because you used it is rubbish. I stopped buying cameras and/or lenses from Amazon after I was stuck twice with obviously used/returned lenses four years ago. You might want to dig through your Amazon account and see if you can actually process a return through your account and see if there is such a policy in writing.

I found some contradicting information on amazon that makes it sounds like I can return without issue. So I was able to create a return shipper and I'm sending it back tomorrow. Once I get my full refund (knock on wood), I am heading to my local store, Roberts, to get an even better deal than amazon is offering right now. I should have gone there all along...

Requirements for a Full Refund
Items must be in new condition
Items must be returned with all original packaging and accessories
Media items (for example, movies, music, video games, and software) must be unopened and still in their plastic wrap
Musical instruments, televisions, and consumer electronics must have a UPC or serial number
Shoes and clothing must be unworn

That's what it looks like Ferdi, at least at B&H. The $200 discount was supposed to continue until the end of the month on the kit.

Yep, $2,096.95.

I couldn't resist and picked up the kit before the price went back up. I'm moving up from a D7000 that was placed on my bumper prior to going to get some lunch.

Same at Amazon. Adorama sold our earlier today. I guess we will have to wait and see if the prices really go away but I'd say it's likely since B&H has alread jacked the price.

BH just has to update their site with the new instant savings program and I just looked, they have the 12/29 program up now. And so will every one else. No need to panic until the 29th

I would return it too but the right thing to do is to buy it from Amazon.
