You can see these nicely organized at Adorama. The promotion expires by the end of day on 12/13/14 per that page. You also get free overnight shipping!
Adorama is offering four free accessories (Nikon WU-1b wireless adapter, extra Nikon EN-EL15 battery, Nikon camera bag with Nikon School DVDs, 16GB Sandisk SDHC) and 4% promotional rewards with the purchase of these three Nikon D610 DSLR kits: body only ($1600) or w/24-85mm VR ($2000) or w/28-300mm VR ($2400).

Imported = no warranty from Nikon USA.
Adorama is offering a free one year New Leaf Spills and Drops warranty on select cameras and lenses from Canon or Nikon or Sony.
