Inspired by a similar deal on the NEX-3 with dual lens I just bought the NEX-5 dual lens kit from Best Buy via quidco. £549 less £55 quidco less £82 VAT back less £150 when I sell the 16mm lens. Net price should be c£262 for a NEX-5 with 18mm lens or the whole set for £410.

At £262 this is cheaper than even the best Jessops Clearance deal seen. If voting cold please say why as I may cancel if I am wrong

UPDATE: Quidco tracks at £55 (ie inc VAT price)

good deal
but out of stock

Yeah, it's out of stock now. I was just about to place an order but they have run out of stock. Called up Best Buy and they said there are more stocks coming in either tomorrow or next Monday. Hope I don't miss it next time. =/
#4
Stock is back in Best Buy online store!!! Now with 15.15% cashback from TCB!! Just placed an order and can't wait for it to be delivered next week. :)

Wow - out of stock again already! Probably a good thing for me - I'm still on the fence with this one. I think this is a great deal - just don't know whether to go for a DSLR or this.

yaosiang - have you moved from your computer in the last 48 hours?
#6
Managed to buy one... Quidco tracked at £82.50 though so I don't know how they worked that one out. Add that to the £81.91 VAT refund and you get a real bargain! Thanks OP, heat added.

To be honest I have been checking out this deal almost every 15 minutes when I was in front of the computer. Was very surprised when I found out it was available for home delivery yesterday night. It's out of stock again now.

TCB tracked at £83.32 for me, that's 15.15%.

Whoop amazing deal - just snapped one up.

Was going for the Oly E-PL1 but went to see the NEX today in John Lewis and it's a stunning piece of kit. Much prefer the NEX-5 to the NEX-3 contrary to a lot of people who prefer the wider grip of the 3.
#12
Just placed an order myself. Missed out on the 15% Quidco over the weekend, but still a very good deal.

Thanks yaosiang.. used hotuk for years.. just neever anything via TCB.. I just checked.. bnut it doesnt say anything.. when i click on best buy.. it says it could take up to 7 hours to track.. but there nothing at all about a purchase on my account..so i wsnt sure if it should pending on the earnings.. or if would be blank for up to 7 hours.. should i wait?! or cancel my order and retry..?!

Thanks again!
#14
Ordered one to replace Canon 450D + all the L lenses. Not a match, but very practical to carry around.

I'd give it a while yet. My Quidco hasn't tracked yet either. Bought something from them last week and it tracked within half an hour. I'll give it 24 hours before I start getting too worried.
#16
My QuidCo hasnt tracked either and someone said on QuidCo community Bestbuy wasnt tracking!

http://www.quidco.com/quidclans/the-quidco-member-moan-zone/discussions

I'll be most annoyed as they are advertising on QuidCo there is even a 10% increase in cashback for the next few days!!!!

(Mods i think i should be ok now? cant reply to your PM in any case)
#17
I'd be worrying only after a day, as the estimated tracking time is 24 hours or so. Also, the order is not processed.
#18
My quidco from bestbuy tracked within an hour or so on Saturday night.
#19
I placed my order this morning.
My Quidco hasnt tracked either so far.

BTW, my order status is Order received, and my delivery date is next monday. Is it a issue?

#20
Just a quick question: should I cancel my order if no tracking information at all by the next day?
#21
As per you qianjizhao.. my order has been received but not issued.. and my TCB hasnt tracked.. it has been 24 hours.. just wondering if it would be a good idea to cancel or to wait as bestbuy say that money isnt debited until the order has been dispatched.. but then cant cancel have to send back (hassle!) should i hold on or just cancel and reorder?!

Thanks in advance!
#22
Did mine with TCB and appear to have received 10.1% on the net (I.E. non-VAT) amount. Is Quidco definitely coming back on the with VAT amount? It just says 10%...
#23
RJ.. when did you place your order?! Quidco is tracking at £55 i.e. vat inclusive amount, I ordered via TCB but not heard anything back
#24
Whoops, I lied - mis-read my cashback. TCB actually tracked at 10.1% on the total VAT amount. I too ordered the dual lens kit and a 16GB Lexar card, making my cashback £58.07. I initially read it as £53.07, so assumed it had excluded the VAT. Delivery Monday :-)

Oh, and it's good to see that yours is tracking now... I was worried for a while that I hadn't seen mine, but noticed it this morning before coming on here.

QuidCo should be ex-vatand delivery.

Quote "Cashback may only be paid on the basket value excluding VAT & delivery".
#26
When did you guys order and how long until you saw the cashback on TCB?
My camera is on its way (next day delivery), ordered yesterday.
#27
I ordered yesterday morning and saw it this morning. I went for the free delivery next Monday 29/11. All dates before that were £9.99 for delivery when I ordered. Oddly, I received an email from BestBuy after placing my order yesterday, saying the next stock was in on Saturday... as I'd previously emailed them to ask when stock would be back in. Worrying, but I'm hoping that customer services just missed the fact that they already had stock in...

**Edit** Just had an email back from them, confirming that it is indeed in stock now. Phew!

duckson: have you had your cashback tracked on Quidco? Thanks
#29
Quidco still hasn't tracked yet. Fingers crossed...
#30
Guys you all need to chill out regarding cashback.

If it doesn't track just lodge an inquiry and it'll get sorted.
#31
Nope my Quidco hasnt tracked as yet, its been well over 24 hours and my camera has been paid for and dispatched.
I went for the next day, cost me £10 but hey-ho.

iaTa, yes i know! :)
QuidCo says on your Transactions tab "Before sending a message to Customer Care, have you browsed our Help section.
Note: Cashback can occasionally take a few days or more to track into your account.
Please wait at least 14 days before submitting an enquiry to see if it tracks properly.".

It's too late to cancel my orders online. I'm thinking call them tomorrow.

Just ordered one after umming and arring for a week. This deal swung the credit card into action.
Cheers voted hot

Anyone know of any accessories worth buying? Particularly a camera bag for this?
1 Like #35
Sony case is sold in 2 parts and is circa £80-90...expensive!

Other than a "normal" bag then you can get this, similar to Sony case and much cheaper:-

Or seems like same item but from Hong Kong:-

BTW QuidCo are saying if the Bestbuy hasnt tracked in 3 days then raise an enquiry.

Re: Best Buy. There is not a problem with this. They have had huge volumes of transactions through our site recently and the proportion which has failed to track is no larger than normal. If yours hasnt tracked 3 days from purchase, please raise a missing cashback query
