Refurbished Olympus Pen-F for $750 (silver) [updated]

UPDATED 6/10/17 at 6:14pm ET

The official Get Olympus (Olympus USA) online store has a few refurbished cameras on sale. Unfortunately the $200 E-M10 and $225 E-PL7 options you see there are sold-out and CANNOT be ordered and since then they have been removed from the website.

However, the silver Pen-F body only is available for $750 with free shipping. The black went for $700 but as of this update it is sold out and removed from the website. They come with a 90-day warranty from Olympus USA.

The new condition price is $1000 at authorized dealers, with 4% promotional rewards, eg Adorama and B&H Photo.

If you are comfortable with heavily used cameras, the black Olympus E-M1 (first generation) body only is available in “Used – Good” condition for $389 plus shipping (starts around $9, varies by zipcode) at Adorama. If the link does not work in your browser (it has spaces in the URL which may confuse some browsers), use the Adorama Used Search results.

NOTE: that used supplies can be very limited…

Here is how the Adorama used camera gear rating system describes this condition. If you are a perfectionist, keep that in mind 🙂

YMMV: 8% eBay Bucks on $50+ items

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Sunday 3am eastern (6/11/17), you earn 8% eBat Bucks on items individually priced $50+. You have to manually activate the offer first from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.

Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Archive posts.
