Olympus Launches Stackable M43rds System Discounts with One Camera (E-M1, E-M5, E-PL5, E-PM2) and One or More LENSES (9-18, 12/2, 75/1.8, 12-40/2.8)

The System Bait combined purchase discount party finally arrives at Olympus Land! A new limited time offer at Amazon (expiration date is not mentioned), brings Olympus M43rds Combined Purchase Discounts!

STEP #1: you must buy one camera kit from a choice of around 30. Options include the Olympus E-M1 kits, the E-M5 kits, the E-PL5 kits and the E-PM2 kits.

STEP #2: you must buy one or more lenses. Five lenses are participating in this promotion. You get a $200 off combined purchase discount for EACH lens you buy TOGETHER in the same shopping cart with a camera kit. If you want to max out, one camera kit and five lenses means $1000 off in combined purchase discounts.

The five eligible lenses are the 12mm f2, 75mm f1.8 black and silver, 9-18mm f4-5.6, and 12-40mm f2.8. All Olympus micro four thirds lenses.

As always, all items must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself, not by marketplace sellers or used. One of the ways people mess up combined purchase instant rebates is they try to buy the lenses for less from marketplace sellers (instead of Amazon itself), hoping to get a bigger discount. This does not work.

There is no coupon code to enter. Add the camera kit and lens/lenses to the shopping cart and proceed to Checkout. If all is well, the discounts will be automatically applied at the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page (see example below)...

In this example, we added the black Olympus E-M5 with 12-50mm to the shopping cart along with all five lenses. We get five $200 combined purchase discounts. So the black and silver versions of the 75mm f1.8, IN THIS CASE, count as separate lenses! Here is a screenshot crop of the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page with all these added in...


NOTE: I reposted the screenshot crop above, because the original accidentally had an additional item. Notice the lower total amount.
