Bought mine using AMEX points. I had a 30% off offer via Shop Amex, so I bought it (through Crutchfield) for the equivalent of $2333. Of course, it's essentially "free" in terms of cash outlay, but I used 30% less points to get it. :)

Any hobbyist out here that bought the Mark3?


I did...

I used a CC, then went to my CC account the next day to pay for the balance... It added 3500points to my mastercard......

Paid by CC (Amazon Rewards) to get prime 3x points - then paid the CC off right away.

3,500 pts x 3 = 10,500 pts = $105 off my BG-E11 and GP-E2 purchase.

I am not planning on buying a MK3 anytime soon but if I was now, at this moment,to buy one, finances being what they are, I would finance it at zero percent on a 12 or 24 month intro credit card. Its a great way to pay off something slowly with no interest. I did just pay cash for the lumber to build my deck=$1,650, Taxes for house and other property=$6,300, gas and wood for next winter=$3,300.....whic​h is why I am broke and would finance....

They're all lying!:p

Depends on the establishment. Pole dancing can be very lucrative though.

I'm glad to know you think pole dancing would be my forte.
