New Nikon instant rebates for June: “the more you buy, the more you save”

Nikon rebates

Starting today, Nikon changed their instant US rebates and included several new lenses. The new rebates are "stackable", which means that you can purchase more than one lens and still take advantage of the savings. If you don't need a new body, you can get the cheap D3100 in order to qualify for the savings and then sale it. The qualifying Nikon DSLR bodies are: D3100, D3200, D5100, D5200, D7000, D7100, D600, D800 and D4. This offer will expire on June 29th, 2013. Most of those listings qualify for free shipping and 2% in rewards.

Similar savings are available also on Amazon:

    Dear Nikon,
    Why do you HATE the rest of the world?

  • Dont Know Jack

    F*$# that. They should just have instant rebates for the lenses only, if nikon really wants to make money. “Buy a 3100 and then sell it” F*%$ that! They already are probably having a hard time pushing those and so how would we sell it.

    • Nikon had lens only rebates few months ago when they had to catch up on their sales. With the current offer, if you buy two high priced lenses, the D3100 basically comes for free.

      • Larrry

        True, the D3100 comes ‘free’ to sell on Ebay. However, it is really no good it the desired lens is not there. Missing ‘existing’ lens include the 14-24 f2.8, or compromise with the 16-35 f4, and of course the 105 macro.

        The problem is that it doesn’t let you choose more than one lens. At least, it didn’t let me choose the 24-120mm f/4 and the 70-200mm f/4 together.
        So, if I wanted to buy just the 70-200mm f/4, I would need to spend $450 more (price of the D3100) to save $300. As Dont Know Jack said, Nikon should have real instant rebates on lenses and stop pushing the excess inventory of bodies they want to get rid of.

        • My understanding is that those rebates are stackable. Maybe B&H website is not updated yet. Check the Amazon link I added, maybe it will work there.

          • The issue on B&H website is now fixed and you can add multiple lenses.

  • Mike Kononov

    Yea they try to twist and cut corners to make money by selling you a DSLR.

  • “the more you buy, the more you save”

    I still say the less you buy, the more you save.

    • Eric Calabos

      in this case, if you buy these lenses in the US and sell in another country, you dont save. you make money!
      many travelers from middle east and latin america do that

    • jon

      This nikon sale — yawn!


      was just about to say the same thing… “the more you buy the more you spend”

  • Plug

    “the more asked for products, the more you spend”

  • Pat Mann

    I would buy, no rebate required:
    24mm f/1.4 AF-S DX
    16mm or 18mm f/2.0 AF-S DX
    16mm PC-E DX
    50-135mm f/2.8 AF-S DX
    400mm f/5.6 AF-S DX
    58mm f/1.4 or f/1.2

    • Plug

      Add 300 f1.4 VR and I am absolutely with you. It is not about paying less for what you don’t want and more about happily paying for what you do want.

      • Pat Mann

        I’m assuming you intended to list a 300 f/4 VR – a lens I would also like to see, and which with an updated 1.4 extender would substitute for my requested 400 f/5.6.

        • Plug

          Yes, typo….f4

        • MyrddinWilt

          +1 for that.

          I think the 300 f/4 VR is just about the last obvious upgrade left in the Nikon range.

          It is not at all clear that the DC lenses will ever be updated. The Fisheye lenses do need an update to AFS but focus is hardly an issue on a fisheye as pretty much every shot is at the hyperfocal distance anyway. The macro lenses might be upgraded or Nikon might choose a different length entirely.

          But the 300 f4 is a real no brainer but I would guess the 80-400 was a higher priority.

          DX wides are a different matter. No brainer to put them on the market if they can make them. But designing good, fast DX wide lenses is really hard.

    “the more you buy, the more you save”

    lol. the only way to save is not to spend.

  • lorenzo

    Dear Nikon,
    Still no savings on D4, D800E and super telephotos.
    Why do you keep bothering us with all these BS?

  • lorenzo

    any rumor about the 24mm f/1.4? Except for few stores, it has disappeared from the market. At B&H it is on back order since March 3rd. Has Nikon released any new patent for a 24 mm f/1.4?

    • No, just a temporary delay I think.

      • lorenzo

        O.K. I’ll wait for it. Thanks.

  • MyrddinWilt

    The yen has been falling. So Nikons dollar prices are on the high side.

    Expect this to continue and maybe Nikon will let the dealers discount again. If they don’t end up being whacked by the FTC for their current anti-competitive policy.

  • spicynujac

    I got really excited as I have yet to order a D7100 but then I saw the lens selection. The only one I even looked at is the 24-70 and its just too bulky and heavy and not wide enough for me at 24mm on DX for the price. If they would have thrown in a small rebate even, on the 70-400 Nikon would have a lot of my money right now. The only thing I guess I would consider at this point is the 18-200. Is that really what Nikon wants me to do? Push me towards the budget all in one lenses instead of buying 3-4 primes or higher priced zooms? Cause that’s what they’re doing.

    • rex

      17-55 DX! Love it on my D7000

  • Guest

    I’m still waiting for my 85mm 1.8G that I ordered back in March. Still no ETA yet. Ridiculous.

  • Anonymous Coward

    Worthless if I have to buy a body too. Yawn.

  • B&H updated their banner and included 3 new lenses in the instant rebate program.

  • Mansgame

    Bundles are great. It lets me update one lens each time I buy a new body so I don’t overdo it. When they had the non-bundle sale a few months ago I nearly died of NAS.

    The more I buy, the more broke I get.
