Olympus launches a System Bait promotion for the E-M5 and M43/43 Lenses (up to 3 lenses)

If you are interested in getting into the Olympus E-M5 (or stocking up more) bodies and lenses, Olympus has launched a new mail-in rebate System Bait promotion. This is a mail-in rebate promotion, and you must cut the UPC boxes from the boxes. You will receive $150 back in the form of a prepaid VISA gift card per lens. You will not receive cashback.

You must buy everything together in one shopping cart. One Olympus E-M5 kit (of the standard five available) and up to three lenses. You can buy one lens, or two lenses, or three lenses. You will receive $150 back per lens in the form of a prepaid VISA gift card via mail-in rebate. Only qualifying lenses are eligible!

Both Micro Four Thirds (M.Zuiko) and Four Thirds (SLR) lenses are eligible for this promotion. Only the qualifying lenses shown in the PDF file are eligible for this promotion.

The promotion is good between January 3-27 in 2013. Rebate submission must be postmarked by February 15, 2013 (don't wait until the last minute!).

Since you have to submit the original UPC codes, make sure you are happy with everything before cutting up the boxes and submitting the mail-in rebates.

Here is the direct link to the PDF file at B&H Photo (link is a PDF file!)

The Olympus E-M5 kits are discounted to the Black Friday prices again. The body only goes for $950, w/14-42 for $1050 and w/12-50 for $1200. For a refresher on the camera, check the list of completed Olympus E-M5 reviews.
