I had ordered yesterday and forgot to ask for anything, so I called a few minutes ago and got a 3rd battery for free (fuji branded). I should have gotten the Sandisk 95mb but I was off my game.

I tried that earlier today and it didn't work. I called Amazon to ask about the filter deal since it doesn't include a 58mm filter for the 18-55 lens. I even had a $40 Sandisk 95ms 16gb card in my wish list hoping to make bargain with them. I was one the phone for 20 minutes as I explained the problem with the offer and had the guy check it out. He confirmed it was wrong and I asked if I could substitute a $40 SD card for a $50 filter. He put me one hold again and talked with the supervisor (for almost 5 minutes). The supervisor said 'No substitutes' and they will look further into this (I also mentioned Amazon doesn't even carry the 58mm filter). I was a bit bummed and was ready to buy my XE1 right then but decided to hold another day or two and perhaps try again at a different time and hope they looked into this or I get a different supervisor. Ironically, by the time I got off the phone Amazon was out of stock on the Silver kit.

Anyway, I has hoping for a free SD card and would have settled with a free battery but instead I got nothingĀ
