T3 - I had no difficulty finding cash backs for the A7III, then again I am willing to look.

Not at major retailers such as B&H, Adorama, Best Buy or Amazon. These stores together probably account for 90+% of camera sales nationwide.

In California where I am located, a major regional camera store is Samy's Camera. No cash back on A7 III at Samy's either:

And according to a sales clerk I recently spoke to at Samy's, the A7 III is their top selling FF ILC. In fact, it's one of their best selling cameras, period. So again, why should they discount it if it sells so well?
