Roberts Imaging sweetens the deal while you wait for the D3x
Nikonians Corporate Partner Roberts Imaging has a special deal on the table for our Nikonians members who are placing pre-orders on the new Nikon D3x.
We checked with Derek Martin from Roberts Imaging for more pre-ordering details:
Nikonians members can call 1-800-726-5544 and ask for Mail Order, or they can email Roberts: with the subject line reading: D3x Nikonians
This contact will get you on the waiting list for the D3x and by mentioning your Nikonians membership and username you will be automatically in line for the special deal. If you are a member of NPS you should mention that also.
Your contact will place you on the Roberts wait list in the order they have received it, and you will not be asked for credit card information. There is no commitment for the purchase at this point.
Once Roberts receives their D3x shipments they will start contacting those who have placed their pre-orders, in the order they were received. Some will be reserved specifically for NPS members, and some open stock. For the open stock they will go down their list and contact each person. You will have a time-frame, usually a day or two, to get back with Roberts and confirm you still want to purchase the camera.
Derek says from that point on it's just a matter of paperwork and shipping times:
"If they confirm their order with us, we'll take their credit card information. First time customers have to ship to the billing address of an American credit card. International customers can ask us about establishing a wire transfer and we'll work with them. All orders ship signature required, no exception."
Nikonians who have identified themselves early in the pre-order with their usernames will then have the special offer automatically applied, said Derek -- "Before we ship their order, we'll add in a free Extreme III 4 GB CF card and a coupon for half off a Nikonian's gold membership." That half off is a $37.50 USD rebate on your Nikonians Gold Membership.
Pricing on the D3x is still currently showing only the MSRP ($7,999 USD) but Derek tells us your mention of the Nikonians username and this special offer will get you the best price Roberts Imaging can provide.
