Last day for rebates, plus Nikon D90 kit deal

Just wanted to remind that tomorrow (12/11/2010) is the last day for Nikon Rebates. It is a great time to upgrade and certainly a great time to get the mega discounts Nikon is giving away right now. For those who are interested in the D90, the Nikon D90 + Nikkor 18-105mm is discounted by $150 at the moment (instant rebate), which brings down the cost to $939! What a great deal, since the body-only version of the Nikon D90 cost $999 when it was announced and now it is $939 for the whole kit.

Here are the links to the deals once again:

Nikon D3000 rebates: $100 – $250 savings on selected Nikkor lenses
Nikon D3100 rebates: $100 – $250 savings on selected Nikkor lenses
Nikon D300s rebates: $100 – $400 savings on selected Nikkor lenses
Nikon D700 rebates: $200 – $400 savings on selected Nikkor lenses
Nikon D3s rebates: $300 – $400 savings on selected Nikkor lenses

If you are thinking about just getting a Nikon D700 body only without any lenses and you live in Colorado, let me know ASAP. A friend of mine wants to get a 70-200mm VR II and he will gladly split the $400, since he does not need the camera body. That’s another $200 off the D700!

    These are some good deals, however there are no good deals just for the Nikon lenses. I’ve been looking from a while for some good deals on Nikon lenses.. especially the macro lens 50mm f 1.4G AF-S.

      Shwetha, you are right! The deals are only good if you are buying a lens with a camera :(
      Oh, and the 50mm f/1.4G is not a macro lens – it is a “standard” portrait lens.

      Shwetha, 50mm is not a macro lens – it is a standard lens. And yes, the deals are only for lenses with a DSLR body.

    These rebates have been extended once again. This time until 12/31/10.

      Hehe :) Thanks for letting me know. I don’t trust these stupid deadlines anymore. They have been extending them every month!

    :( We never get rebates in India :(
    Even now, the D90+18-105 costs $1220.

      Rahul, that’s very unfortunate :( Looks like India is a very good market for Nikon nowadays…hopefully they will start doing the rebates soon.

        hi Nasim,
        yes I did read recently that Nikon’s market share in India is higher than Canon’s (surprising! given they can’t keep up supply ) . I hope they do rationalize prices, even Europeans get a raw deal – same number but in Euro than $.

    Is the D700 still taken? I got the D7000 + 70-200mm deal on Amazon, getting $400 off. But the D7000 is out of stock and with an unknown number of people who ordered it and who knows how many bodies Amazon receives per month, I have no clue when I will receive it. I might as well cancel the D7000 and go for the D700 and pair it with my 70-200 VRII.

      Brian, I’m afraid they will take away your $400 if you were to cancel your order, since the $400 off is only for the combo. Give them a call and see what they say. If they don’t mind giving you two discounts, then I would certainly be interested in getting another lens and splitting the $400.

        Actually, I got an email saying that Amazon expects to ship the D7000 by next week. I can’t wait to try it out. Should be a vast improvement over my D3000. And I want to see if it has the caliber of the FX bodies. Thanks though, and thank you for all your reviews and posts! I really enjoy them!
