Samsung NX1 Body with $42 Rewards for $1049

If you have Samsung NX lenses, or you don’t need the kit lens bundled with the NX1, there is a sale at Adorama, you can get the Samsung NX1 body only for $1049 with free expedited shipping along with 4% promotional rewards (around $42 to be used in future Adorama purchases)… The NX1 with 16-50mm kit goes for $1200…

Samsung NX1 with 16-50mm f2-2.8 S OIS & Battery Grip & Extra Battery & Audio Technica Camera-Mount Mic for $2200

The Samsung NX system did not hitch a meteoric ride on the popularity of the Galaxy phones, but on the other hand, it’s still around, which may have been the “tide lifts all boats” impact of the Galaxy phones. Regardless, the current Samsung NX1 body only goes for $1100 at authorized dealers with some offering 4% promotional rewards ($44~) such as B&H Photo and others while retaining the same $1100 price offer a free Audio-Technica AT8024 mic (Adorama; the mic goes for $250 on its own).

On the other hand, if one is looking for a “serious kit”, the NX1 is bundled with the 16-50mm f2-2.8 S ED OIS lens for $2200 with 4% promotional rewards ($88~) at B&H Photo.

But if you want a better bang for the buck power-user deal, at Adorama you still pay $2200 for the NX1 with 16-50mm f2-2.8 S OIS but instead of the 4% promotional rewards, you get the Samsung ED-VGNX01 Vertical Battery Grip, an additional Samsung battery, and the Audio-Technica AT8024 camera-mount mic. So that’s three additional items instead of $88~ to be used in future purchases.
