Amazon has a hidden price promise that if you buy something and it drops in price within 30 days you can get the difference back. That means if you did any shopping there; you should check if the price has dropped in the sales, and if it has - claim the money back.

How do you get it back?

Amazon won't do this automatically, you'll need to go back and check the prices of the goods you've bought by logging into your account.

Simply visit your account and look at each invoice from the last thirty days and click on each item to view it's current price. Compare this to the price you paid and if there's a difference, copy down the order number and go to the 'Return and Refunds Contact Form' page to report it.

Step by step instructions

* Log into your Amazon account
* Click on 'view orders placed in the last 6 months'
* Copy the Amazon.co.uk order number:
* Click on the item to see if the price has dropped
* Click on 'Help' followed by Contact Us, 'Customer Service'
* Once you've found the right order click on Contact Amazon, copy in the order reference number and explain you'd like a refund as the price has dropped.

Cheers Hotshot

It's always been £247...you have to get the cashback for £207

Bought this camera on the 25th July for our holiday last week - superb piece of kit and the picture quality is excellent.

Thanks for the pointer re the Amazon price promise - I've fired them off an email for the £20 difference.

best thing is to get pcworld to pricematch as its £289 in pcworld so you will get 10% of the difference approx £4 making it £203 after cashback. amazon is on there pricematch promise list so they will do it no problem :thumbsup:

Nikon have had two cashback promotions so far this year ,(spring promotion and summer promotion) the summer promotion had a slightly greater cashback.Thats why their are different promotion closing dates.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Hotshot.

does anyone know if i reserve this to collect at store from pc world, will they still do the pricematch against amazon?? thanks!

Yes, I believe they would. You may have to pay non pricematched price at the till then phone the claims line.

Question - the deal says you must purchase a separate and additional lens kit. If you buy the Amazon box then will you have to add a separate lens kit? As the claim form says you need the lens kit serial no.

I submit this information 6 hours ago, but been moved to MISC O_O

So the cheapest way to buy is to use quidco (2.5% or £7.24) and collect at store of PC World to avoid postage. Then 110% of the diff is £4.20. Am I missing something or would I pay £196.51 in real terms after price match and quidco and cashback from rebate at Nikon. And that doesn't even include paying with a cashback credit card worth anything between 0.5% and 4%. I am tempted. You can tell.

Well you take plenty of time - wouldn't want to do anything hasty like buy an award winning DSLR for an astronomical £196 :roll:

Lol. That made me giggle. Seriously though, would the lens included in the bundled box be enough to qualify for the Nikon Cashback?

Yep it would, i've been working it all otu and it will work!

gr8 post. i was checking the price yesterday or the day b4 and it was still £267
