Olympus Trade-IN Bonus Event – Get $200 off per item

A brand new Olympus M43rds Trade-In Promotion is now Live at B&H Photo. Use promo code TRADENTIME to get $200 off each item from the list shown there when you trade-in any camera or lens for it. Maximum bonus savings $800. The promotion runs until 5/6/17. The promotional page outlines the three step process:

A total of three cameras and three lenses are participating, including the E-M1 II with 12-40mm f2.8 which goes for $2700 before the trade-in promotion.

NOTE: I haven’t done this promotion (being a poor blogger I can’t buy a $1000+ camera just so I can test the checkout process), so I don’t have a step by step for the whole process…
