$2700 @ local Best Buy

Just got one in Paramus NJ store (1 more left, BTW).

10% coupon @ http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthread.php?sduid=0&t=887655
Print it and bring it to store, I had 0 hassle applying it.

My personal long wait is over, got my affordable , quality digital FF and can use all of my Nikon glass.

Tempered only by my frustration at the low shelf life of most things digital before they are outdated, it really is a great time for consumers.

How much was the sales tax?

NJ is mostly 7%, although they have a few areas where it is only 3.5%. Unfortunately those stores didn't have it

Re: $2700 @ local Best Buy

I know that the two BB's near me surely do not have D700's in stock.

Same here. The Best Buy stores near here have no intention of even carrying it. What a shame.

Re: $2700 @ local Best Buy

If you go to the best buy web site it claims: "Store Pickup: Available at most stores".

If you then go the d700 page it offers to let you check your own store (zip, etc). My local store does not have it, but as I gone one from B&H (without 10% discount), it was not something I was looking for . . .

That's the problem where I live. Not a best buy within 100 miles intends to carry it. I called each of them tonight, and the coupon is only for stock items, and can't be used if you order it online for store pickup.

If you actually bought one and used the 10% off coupon you got lucky. I have the coupon and it has a line that says no digital slr cameras.

Re: $2700 @ local Best Buy

The scary thing is they are available in Augusta, Ga.

We have no 3-G network. We are a backwater. The people here are great, but we are behind the times. Our population continues to go down. Once a year we have the world come visit, but even then we have nothing. If you want it, you need to order online.

But we do have D700 cameras and (since it's not a Sony) its 10% off. Too bad the tax free weekend was just over!

Come to Augusta!

ThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYou!!!!

Just picked mine up at my local Best Buy- I read this post last night about 8pm and checked stock on their website. There were four stores with D700's in stock in my area. I called the store near my office, confirmed they had them, and asked them to hold me one which they did. Went in there a bit ago and walked out with the camera and a 4 year protection plan- all for $2900. And as a bonus the girl pointed out the bottom part of the coupon was double 'Rewards' points- so I get $10 in gift cards for each $250 I spent today- $110. Nice.

Looking for D700? -- still $2700 @ some local Best Buy

You need to check website/call before you go, but "cheap" D700's still are available at some local Best Buy locations. (You need to get the 10% off coupon earlier in this thread).

They don't offer any help, but if you know what you want (D700 body only) then this is a cheap way to go. (I got mine from B&H but even with tax could have gotten one cheaper at my local best buy).

Re: what is this thread about? (n/t)

Tax would be $240 for me in CA. no savings here except for $60. rather buy from B&H or Beach Camera or ? and get free shipping and no sales tax.. Prices will drop soon anyway. don't have a rewards card.

Most BB coupons do limit DSLRs...

I always feel mislead by BBs advertising. They send out these coupons (I get them all the time being a reward zone member) and it says, "Nearly EVERYTHING in the store...". Then when you read the disclaimer...it eliminates LOTS of things.
