I bought this for $150 2 weeks ago from the same seller on Amazon and got everything as described (despite the 1 negative review). It's Prime eligible, so really no gamble as Amazon will care for you if you don't get everything as described.

This is a no brainer, IMO. The same package from CheetahStand is $190. I have a few CheetahStand items and Edward is great, but this is nearly %50 less. I bought 2 more last night and am returning my original order (makes sense as they won't price match and since I originally bought one at $150, I can now get a complete second set for only $50 more!).

Now it just says "in stock" without defining any quantity. Nice!

Just FYI, I had a bad experience with Amazon's Standbyon vendor. In my case they advertised some light clamps as in-stock, shipped from NJ within 1-2 business days, but took over 3 weeks to actually deliver the items. Since I also live in NJ about 1 hour from Standbyon's location, I expected receipt in 3-5 days. When the clamps didn't arrive after 2 weeks I had to buy them locally and then argue with Standbyon for over week and threaten a credit card chargeback before they agreed to a return and refund. They just don't show any understanding of customer service.

Amazon was no help at all, in fact they wouldn't even accept my negative review of the seller.

I imagine that this isn't a concern with items fulfilled by Amazon and eligible for Prime. But something to keep in mind for non-Prime items.

Yes, my primary rule for Amazon is buying items only if they are fulfilled by Amazon.

I just saw this post, but fortunately I saw this deal on Amazon as well, when it was priced at $99.95 (they had 15 left then)
I got my speedlight today but the package DID NOT include the trigger/receiver combo or the car charger. I hope you had better luck than me.

I chatted with Amazon, since it was fulfilled by them, and they refunded me $43 (price of trigger and car charger as stand alone by this seller standbyon on amazon) so the flash kit ended up costing me a lot less :)

On ebay there is a US based seller "Emilyandlilly" they are selling the trigger/receiver combo for under $24. I had gotten one from them earlier, and now I have the flash to go with it!

The bundle deal the OP posted was sold by Amazon seller StandByOn (and fulfilled by Amazon). I received mine yesterday as well and it did not include the receiver combo or the cable. I assume they just messed up (deliberately?) on the item title. But chatting with Amazon was really easy and I am getting the refund as well. So after all not a bad deal altogether even though I have to buy the extras separately now.
