Found 13th Mar 2013
Starts on 14th March 2013 and runs until the end of May, Nikon Uk are offering cashback of between £30 and £150 on some of their SLR cameras. Mainly from the DX range plus the D600 from the FX range - £150 off that one.

Nothing off the D800 sadly (nor the new D7100).

Nikon are brilliant with cash-back, I've claimed three lots now and all received within a week of submitting the claim.

Cash-back came in the form of prepaid visa card, I found the simplest way to spend it was just fill my car with fuel...
It only means the price is going down by more then these figures after the 1st July.
What makes you say that?

How much can I get a 35/55mm now for my d3100?

I need a good zoom too only have kit lens atm
Oh not on lens. Damn.
Might be time to get replace my D90 and get a second D7000 as backup at these prices then. :-)
Awesome, was thinking D7000 but might just push for the D600.

Still tempted by mirroless though.....
Following a similar promotion, the prices did not fall before Christmas. With the current exchange rate, prices will only rise in my opinion.
I done this at christmas to buy my 40th Birthday present, shame its not my Birthday till may you get £30 off th enikeon d3100 kit so its worth it as argos are doing it at £310 & I think Asda are doing it as a great bundle for £296
Brilliant, this makes the D5100 £380 in Curry's which matches Digital Rev. I was tempted to buy from Digital Rev, but this has convinced me. Curry's are also offering 2 year Nikon warranty.

When you use them in-store, you don't need to have a pin or anything for them do you? I've received mine and it has a chip, but obviously no pin! Do they just... work? lol
what should be the ideal purchase for a noob.. coming from lifelong....point & shoots .. don't know much about photography (e.g. depth/ warmth /colours/ lenses / filters all sounds greek to me)... just need something to take my boy's growing up photograph's better and point and shoot's result are not very good.. not looking to spend above 500 including accesories and all

I bought the d3100 in the similar deal at the end of last year and coming from point and shoot the difference in quality is amazing, you can still shoot on automatic and get great results, I'm trying to teach myself how to use the various settings but it is quite daunting but also worth it because you get far better results, I added in a nikon 55-200 lens and a tamron 70-300 lens as well all for under £500

Stick to P&S, get a better one if you must (look at Nikon P series) but SLRs are much bigger and much more complicated. If you only used it on full auto, as it sounds like you would, then its just a bigger, heavier P&S. To buy a camera you don't really need because there is a small rebate is a false economy. Spend the money on backup discs to keep all your pictures safe.

If you want to stick to using it on Auto mode, then the above is probably good advice, just buy a nicer compact. You'll still get better pics from a DSLR in certain circumstances, but it's probably not worth the expense and the bulk.

But if you want to start learning about photography, buy yourself a D3100 and dive in. Like anything, once you start reading up and playing around with it for yourself, you'll find it's nowhere near as daunting as it seems. The D3100 is an excellent choice for a beginner. As you get more into it, you have the option of buying more lenses - you probably won't need to buy a more expensive camera until you become a real expert.

The pin is the last 4 digits of the number on the back of the card.

My sentiments exactly and just about to order one of these, as THAT is a great price!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously guys the D7000 with that cashback is a major league bargain.

I have a D800 but need a backup incase of failure and this will fill that gap nicely (business use)
I have the d3100, d600, and not relevant to this the d700.. And I think this is a worthy deal! The D7000 is rather tempting, though I don't need it.. It would replace (and upgrade) my D3100 but ... I really love the little D3100
What's a decent upgrade from a D50? I've had it since it's release date and it's been a cracking camera. I'd like one where the focus motor is in the camera like the D50 so I don't have to mess with new lenses. Cheaper the better

D7000 is the only that meets that criteria
Choices the D3100 OR D5100 for me I think!

I was set on the D3100 before Xmas but price of D5100 is tempting. First DSLR BTW!
Is this only buying direct from Nikon. From the cashback terms:

The promotion only applies to products which have been supplied and distributed by Nikon UK Ltd within the UK and Republic of Ireland.
For beginners how do entry type canon dslrs compare to the likes of the d3100? I want to learn more about photography but since being familiar with the canon which canons are good for beginners?
Thanks

No, not true IMO. It means that they will only honour the deal for UK&RoI-sourced stock. You are fine buying from a reseller.

I've purchased from John Lewis, Jessops (RIP), Dixons Tax free so far and always got the cashback no from Nikon.

Purchased the D7000 from Amazon earlier and as long as "fufilled by Amazon" you have no worries at all.

Canon doesn't exactly have an equivalent to the D3100. The Canon 500D is about the closest in features, but it still seems to be rather more expensive, especially now this Nikon cashback offer has turned up.

I'm a Canon guy myself, and I can highly recommend the Canon 550D. But to be honest, if money's tight, I'd probably buy the Nikon D3100 right now. It's such a bargain, and although the 550D is a really fantastic camera, it doesn't give you an awful lot more in terms of features for your money.

I've posted this, but it's gone freezing.

It may be of use for some...

It's a shame the D800 isn't in the deal, tempting to go for a D600 though at £1250 as a high resolution alternative to the D700.

Where are you buying at £1250? Cheapest I can find is £1450, i.e. £1300 after cashback.
not quite as good as the last cashback offer iirc

Good price but would also advise anyone to try checking via camerapricebuster.co.uk first. E.g. it shows the D7000 at £625 plus P&P from Harrisons:

Quite right, I misread the Amazon price - didn't realise it was a marketplace seller for £1400.

John

Same here, I've bought 2 lenses from Amazon and got cashback for both, total of £75.
The 16-85 end up costing me £362 and the 35mm F1.8 cost me £107

Not sure where "truth" comes into it. It was a quote from their terms and conditions, not a statement.
