    Hey everyone,
    Just thought I would share this.

    I know the cashback thread we have is rather long.
    Let you in on a deal I just got for the tamron 90mm macro.

    (Which will not autofocus on my d40, but, no biggie as its macro, and, the d40 will soon be upgraded at a later time :))

    Now, Just follow the logic here.
    $450.00 Lens from an authorized tamron dealer (This is key!)
    +Used the new 10% ebay coupon code
    +MSN Live cash back is at 25% (live.com , just search nikon)
    + $90 mail in rebate from tamron, (Needs to be from an authorized dealer)


    Subtotal:
    US $450.00
    Shipping & handling:
    US $13.54
    Shipping insurance:
    US $3.00
    Gifts or discounts:
    -US $45.00
    Total:
    US $421.54

    Cashback Total:US $112.50
    Pay with PayPal, claim your cashback with Microsoft and get it in 60 days. See conditions

    421.54 - 112.50 (Cashback) - $90MIR = ~$210.00

    Look for the ebay store:
    pardeescameras

    Ebay Auction Title:
    Tamron SP AF90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 for Nikon

    And, remember the rebate only works when you buy from an authorized dealer:
    http://www.tamron.com/dealers.php?alpha=P

    Which you can see that pardeescameras is listed as.

    Hopefully other folks can take advantage of this, now after 3 hours of looking for something to buy! The wallet be burning!

    I just bought a lightly used one from adorama for $250. Amazing lens, worth its weight in gold.

    Adam,

    That's interesting. However, I could not find any cash back of 25% on live.com cash back search site.

    Could you please provide a direct link? Are there good deals on other lenses? Perhaps, on the Tamron 28-75mm & Tokina 12-24mm & the D80?

    Thanks! :smile:

    Alexgn,

    the www.live.com, then search for nikon.
    The first paid advertised link below has usually been ebay for me.
    (Right now its still 25%)

    I saw your other thread on getting a d80 and the tokina|tamron lens combo.

    Now, I may be going against the grain here(Since we are on a nikon forum), but, any thought of the pentax cameras?
    They seemed to be having some good rebates themself:
    http://www.pentaxslr.com/buy/rebates

    The d80 seems at the end of its life, With the k200d still newish.
    You would have much less in glass to pick from. But, they are having nice rebates on some of their glass too. (16-50/2.8 , 50-135/2.8)

    Just more food for thought.

    I don't know where you look for those 25% but it's definitely not showing for me. Perhaps I should get another registration at MSN or something to see it.

    I looked at the K200D; it does not feature the second adjusting wheel and it comes with a small pentamirror viewfinder. The 16-50 f/2.8 is similar to that of Tokina 16-50 f/2.8, however, it's overpriced even with the cash back from Pentax and has had many problems with QC.

    Here is what it looks like for me for live.com: (Hopefully this is ok for the board,if not I can remove)

    You need to use paypal, and make sure that your email for paypal and ebay are the same.

    Steps to produce.
    1. www.live.com
    2. Right in the search engine type in "nikon" (Dont click in the upper right where it says cashback)
    3. That produced the image for me above.

    And one more food for thought, do you currently have any glass?
    Just curious on why the d80 vs. say the Canon 40d, which has some nice rebates right now itself, and one can go adapter crazy and try all types of glass with it.

    Thanks!

    The 40D is a good camera. But it is being sold for the same money as the D200. :)
