Nikon D810 Switch and Save Promotion: buy D810 and Lenses/Flashes, Get Vouchers to Spend on future Nikon gear purchase
Nikon started a new Switch and Save promotion to encourage more photographers to get to the new Nikon D810 dSLR. This is an intermediate to advanced level deal, so do make sure you pay attention to the details and deadlines. This offer requires the filling in of forms and mailing of them to the Nikon Melville New York address. This is different from what Nikon previously did with Instant Savings and Rebates.
This Amazon Promotional page describes the process.
Requirement #1: You must purchase the Nikon D810 body only between 7/17/14 and 9/30/14.
Requirement #2: With this promotion, you don't have to buy the lenses and flashes in the same transaction (shopping cart). They can be purchased on different days. But they must be purchased within 30 days - before or after - the D810 camera body purchase.
+ $200 Nikon Switch & Save Promotional Voucher with $1750+ purchase of NIKKOR Lenses and/or Nikon Speedlights*
+ $400 Nikon Switch & Save Promotional Voucher with $3500+ purchase of NIKKOR Lenses and/or Nikon Speedlights*
+ $1000 Nikon Switch & Save Promotional Voucher with $7000+ purchase of NIKKOR Lenses and/or Nikon Speedlight
+ NOTE: the price of the D810 body only does NOT count towards the limits above
Requirement #4: you must fill in a form with your eligible purchases, include copy of receipts and original UPC codes from the product boxes, and the original serial numbers. After you assemble your paperwork, and make photocopies and take pictures of your submission, you mail it to Nikon to a Melville New York mailing address. You must submit these by 10/31/14.
Fulfillment: if all is well, Nikon will send you a promotional voucher that you can use towards the future purchase of Nikon Imaging products at that specific retailer you made your original purchase. If there's an issue with that specific retailer you made your purchase at, your vouchers will instead be good at Nikon's own online store
NOTE: you are not receiving cash back! You are receiving a promotional voucher that can only be used in the future towards the purchase of Nikon Imaging products at the retailer you made your original purchases!
If you purchased the Nikon D810 before July 17 (2014), you are still eligible for this promotion as long as your lens and flash purchases were made within 30 days (before or after) the DSLR body purchase.
This is a fairly involved promotion and it includes filling in forms, cutting bar codes and mailing things and making photocopies and such. Be sure to read all the terms and conditions on both the Amazon page and the PDF file of the form for this promotion included over there. If you are not certain, do not assume! Try to find out first. This is different from previous Nikon promotions. If you are not willing to spend the time and put in the tedious work needed to get all these done correctly and then monitor their progress and be prepared to fight them in case they come up with excuses, then you may want to consider not jumping in on this promotion.
