Current Nikon Rebates


Rebates Are Finally Back (Well, not for long)

After a long period in which there was always some NikonUSA rebate program in effect, in 2006 Nikon started having periods in which there weren't any rebates being offered. I've left the last major rebate program information below so that people will have some idea of what has been available in the past (these rebates were modest in comparison to some previous periods). At present, the only rebate I know being offered is a US$10-15 if you purchase a Nikon DSLR and Coolpix together.

The following "Select and Save " rebates are in effect until January 28, 2007. I've listed the base rebate value; you can double or triple that number by purchasing two or three items that qualify (besides the items listed, any D80, D200, D2hs, or D2xs body generates no rebate but adds an item that increases the rebate). For example, buy two lenses and one of the listed bodies, and you'll get triple rebates on the lenses. Note that the product must be purchased from an Authorized Nikon dealer in the US.

US Only


The rebates shown here are from NikonUSA for official imports into the US only.

For rebates, the dealer must provide you with an official rebate form at the time of purchase that shows their dealer information. You can't get your rebate without this.

Unlike most manufacturers, NikonUSA handles its own rebates rather than use a third-party processor (e.g., you mail the form to NikonUSA and you'll eventually get a check back directly from them).

 

Why?

Why does Nikon use rebates all the time? There seem to be two primary reasons: currency fluctuations and inventory promotion. Because both of these things are always in flux, Nikon's rebates tend to be renewed and tweaked every quarter (and sometimes more often).
