#2. "RE: If I buy a D5000 on ebay from a non-authorized dealer (plz help)" In response to In response to 1 Tue 22-Dec-09 02:50 AM by slidenpray
Thank you for your reply Marty!
I took your advice and called Nikon. They advised that if it is US Nikon product and purchased it new from Ebay, my Ebay purchase printout would serve as my proof of purchase and the warranty would be valid. Just to be sure I called and spoke to a different associate and this was confirm. Also, they told me that service would be provided on a US nikon even if there was no warranty. I decided to post my findings in case someone else has some concerns. The price is not too good to be true on face alone, but to get 10% cashback through bing it is good deal of savings.
edited to include: proof of purchase must show model # and date of purchase for it to be valid.
