November 30, 2016, is stated as the shipping date both in Japan & the U.S. — by Amazon.

Not clear whether that means, if you are Amazon Prime and have pre-ordered, it will get to you on Wednesday, November 30 or whether that is the day that Amazon will ship it out for it to get to you, with luck, December 2.

One intriguing question is whether anybody, let’s say ‘Best Buy‘, will get tempted to offer a M5 deal on ‘Black Friday‘ or ‘Cyber Monday‘. I am going to wait, though I will order via Discover with their 90-day price match.

Picked Up My Nikon P900 From BestBuy, Concord, NH, On Sunday — Quite Easy.

On our way to the 5pm performance of ‘Cirque du Soleil’ “OVO”, Verizon Arena, Manchester, on Sunday, we swung by BestBuy, Concord, and picked up the Nikon P900 I had ordered by phone (with the store) yesterday.

They were not busy and there were no lines at ‘Customer Service’. Took them a few minutes to find the box but it was very smooth. There is NOTHING sealed in the box! That really upsets me. But it looks all brand new. I am charging it right. Though I got 4 spare ’01’ batteries for it, I want to start off using the Nikon supplied battery and also charge the internal clock battery. I am not in a hurry. Tomorrow will do for the first shots.

Quite a hefty camera. But it fits in my hand well. Like the weight. So far so good.

I like BestBuy — especially the Concord store. I worked there for a few months, as an Epson ‘brand ambassador’ a few years ago and loved it. Great people. But only saw two people from my time there. Buying electronics from BestBuy could be an option (despite my status as an Amazon shareholder).

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.
