I Bought A Nikon P900, From BestBuy, Just Now — But I Am Not Thrilled!

I am FAR FROM happy. Actually I am bummed. This is NOT what I wanted to do, this is not how I wanted this to go!

The problem, basically, is that Amazon, for reasons that defeat me, do NOT have any! That explains 2 things. They were, until today, advertising the Nikon P900, $70 less than everybody else and YESTERDAY included a cryptic message that the order might take ‘a few additional days to ship’.

So that was my dilemma. I did NOT want the P900 till Thursday, i.e., September 1, 2016. I wanted a fews days decompression from having a camera. So my plan was to order it, from Amazon, on Monday. Then after I saw the “few additional days” I decided I better order it today. I go to order it and there are NO UNITS being sold/shipped by Amazon. Amazon is shipping an unit sold by somebody else; e.g., Adorama. I do NOT want a unit sold by Adorama.

At least with BestBuy I could get in-store pickup locally. That way I can check the box there. Hence the rationale.

Luckily, I was NOT planning to buy this using my Amazon Credit Card — though I have enough credit there, right now, to buy 23 of these cameras. Yep, Amazon will sell me 23 of these to me on my credit card balance.

I was going to buy in on Discover — and I did. Why? Price Match. I have a hunch that the P900 price will drop in the next 90 days. Discover says they will match that. Don’t know. Never used it. Did TRY ‘price rewind’ with Citi BUT like all Citi card benefits it was a SCAM.

Adorama, for one, has the price right. Click to ENLARGE. From Adorama.com.


This would appear to be a ‘Fat Finger‘ problem. They have put the $899.95 price for the KIT against the body. And that appears to have propagated throughout, with the kit being $250 more — as it is supposed to be.

I spoke with an Amazon Rep. just now. Yes, it is possible to speak with Amazon Reps with no hold-time. I do so often. SMILE. I reported the problem and using my persuasive skills even managed to secure myself a small monetary reward for doing so — though Amazon does NOT have a policy for rewarding those that help them keep their product listings kosher. I am happy. Can’t stop smiling. SMILE.
