S100fs Rebate Offer Extended
Dec 20, 2008

Sorry if this is posted somewhere else - I didn't see it if it is.

There has been a $50 mail-in rebate available from Fuji on the S100fs since 11/13/08, but it was scheduled to end on 1/31/09.

I now see the rebate offer has been extended to 2/28/08.

I'm the suspicious type, and as I've posted in another thread, I have to wonder if this doesn't mean the camera is being closed out. This is a common strategy mfr's take toward the end of a product's life to liquidate inventory and stimulate sales of a product whose days are numbered.

Of course, rebates are also used sometimes to increase sales during slow sales times, but this is the Christmas sales season! And I think we have to accept that the S100fs has been around awhile and may be near the end of its life cycle.

I'm still tempted to buy one and use the rebate, but if there is an improved model in the wings, I would kick myself. Given the way ultrazoom bridge cameras are going, though, I tend to doubt there will be a replacement.

This is one of those times when a crystal ball would come in handy.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
