"D7000 purchase with lens rebate/discount at Amazon"


West Bloomfield, US
          

Hi: i purchased a D7000 body at amazon on Feb 19th and subsequently came to know that I could be eligible for discounts/rebates on Nikon lenses at various vendors. When I called amazon I was told there are no such programs currently extent. I still have time to return my D7000 if I can re-purchase same with a lens (with discount) from another vendor such as B&h. Can someone assist me with information on this matter? Much appreciated.

B and H does offers the discounted camera and lens combo depending on the lens that they have on the list. You'll probably end up returning your camera to Amazon and get the combo from B and H photo. The offer ends on March 26,2011.

Sounds like Amazon does not know what they are doing.
Nikon is paying the rebate not them, and it is instant.
They can only gain by selling you the lens.

My local camera store had to contact the Western US distributor first, but was able to give me the rebates on three lens a month after I purchased my D7000.

Rebates have been extended thru 3/26, and as pointed out above they are instant and thru Nikon so are available at all authorized dealers.

I purchased mines about 2 weeks ago from amazon with 24-120 f4 for an instant $300 rebate so the person on amazon must not know what their talking about.

I purchased 2 weeks ago too but only the D7000 body and wanted to get the lens rebate post-facto. Technically Amazon is quite correct refusing to accommodate me. I therefore will just return the body (within 30 days) and go to B&H and get both body+lens for the same discount deal you got. It's not anybody's fault except mine for not knowing I could get a nice body+lens deal at the time of purchase.
