Fuji X System Builder Returns: Fuji X-E1 and 4 primes and 18-55 zoom for $2645
The Fuji X System Instant Savings have returned! From now until September 21 in 2013, you get combined purchase discounts when you buy ONE CAMERA BODY (X-Pro1 body only or X-E1 body only or X-E1 w/18-55 f2.8-4) and ONE or MORE lenses (18mm f2, 27mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4, 60mm f2.4). This promotion is stackable on the lens side. So you can buy one X-body and four X-lenses in the SAME SHOPPING CART, and get four separate discounts stacked in your shopping cart!
Only one unit of the same lens is discounted, you can't buy four 18mm f2s and get four discounts on them. Only one discount for each individual lens model. So it is one discount for the 18mm f2, one discount for the 27mm f2.8, one discount for the 35mm f1.4 and one discount for the 60mm f2.4. You can buy one, two, three, or all four of them. Your choice.
The X-M1 kits are not eligible for this promotion. Out of curiosity I tried a couple of them (one body only and one w/16-50). As expected, they did not work.
System Builder opportunity
This is great opportunity is you want to switch or dive right into the Fuji X System. You can get the Fuji X-E1 with 18-55 f2.8-4 and the Four Primes for $2645! This same group was going for $2774 when the previous inaugural iteration of the Fuji X System savings was running. See an example of this configuration at the bottom of this post.
If you don't want a zoom lens, you can get the Fuji X-E1 and the Four Primes for $400 less. That's the price difference between the X-E1 body and X-E1 w/18-55. Prime Pride!
4% Rewards in parallel
But that's not all. Happening in parallel is an Amazon 4% Promotional Rewards on select cameras and lenses. Most (if not all) of the Fuji X cameras and lenses are eligible for this promotion. So you will receive 4% back in Amazon Promotional Rewards, roughly 35 days after your order ships. (after shipment, not after purchase).
There is no coupon code to enter for either the instant rebates or the 4% rewards. While this promotions are live and you have eligible products in your shopping cart, the discount will appear automatically at the top right corner of the Amazon checkout page. See screenshot crop example at the bottom of this post.
The X System Instant Rebates expire 9/21/13 while the 4% Instant Rewards do not mention an expiration date, so they can end at any time. CAUTION: Only new-condition items sold and shipped by Amazon itself are eligible. You can't mix and match with items purchased from marketplace sellers or used/open-box/refurbished.
You can research the two cameras using the list of completed Fuji X-E1 reviews and X-Pro1 reviews. Lens reviews can be found in the Lens Reviews stream which is out of categories/tags, so the easiest way to find them is to use the search box (right sidebar) to search for "fuji" or "fuji 18mm" or "fuji 35mm".
EXAMPLE with Fuji X-E1 and the five lenses
Here is an example, a shopping cart with the Fuji X-E1 body only and all five eligible Fuji lenses (the 18-55 bundled with the X-E1 and the four Primes). The "visual tutorial" below explains it much faster than words can. It is the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page...
