B&H has lowered their raised price to $1800 for the 7D with 18-135mm lens. Here is my chat conversation:
Tristan : Several hours ago the Canon 7D kit with the 18-135mm kit (B&H # CAE7D18135) was $1729. Now atfter a $200 rebate its $1799. Why is it more expensive now?Christina S: Hello Tristan. My name is Christina, and I will be glad to assist you. Please give me a few moments to begin working on your inquiry.
Christina S: We have experienced some errors in pricing, I'm not sure as to what items exactly this refers to. Your best bet if you want to order the 7D today, would be to call our sales department directly. Otherwise by tomorrow any and all errors should be worked out:
Christina S: Sales
800.606.6969 or 212.444.6615
Tristan: I dont have a phone, can you clarify right now for me please?
Christina S: One moment.
Christina S: It looks as though we will match the earlier price, but you would need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
for the inquiry/order.
Tristan: Thank you for the offer, and I will send an email if I decide to buy it. Does B&H regularly employ sales tactics such as this, raising the price significantly then offering a quasi-fake $200 rebate?
Christina S: This would not be our policy. If you wish to lodge a complaint you could send an email to email@example.com
Tristan: Okay. Thank you for your time.
