I looked back a week on this board and found no mention of this deal.

I purchased one and got it in about 3 days. The sale is through amazon but purchase is from Adorama. I have had an Adorama account for years but a direct purchase from them involved a shipping fee. Being the cheapo that I am I ordered through Amazon and saved the $7.

This deal beats the heck out of the well used 430 ex someone on this board tried to sell me as "pristine" for 180.

Happy hunting.



Ain't nothin but a thing.

Yeah, I just got mine in the mail today. You can't go through Adorama, because they don't have any available on the website. I guess they sold them to Amazon to sell. I was going to buy one on the forum, but I found one new for $10 more through Amazon.

I have a weird feeling that somehow, amazon and adorama are tied to the hip somehow...since you 'never' see B&H on Amazon. It's weird...they're up to no good...haha.

Sure B&H shows up on Amazon... mostly when they have a closeout though. Funny thing though, whenever I've seen an item from B&H, they don't have it listed on their own website as well, just Amazon.

Weird indeed. I've never seen an item from B&H on there. Guess I haven't looked hard enough, but, I do check often! ;)

my 199 dollar 430 is also doing the amazon adorama shuffle, but three days is not a happening thing. It may be free but it aint fast, ordered last week, brown truck will show next week. Christmas and all that I assume. Still, I am happy to get the flash with a warranty for less than two bills. I bet the final closeout price drops to 150, and there will be enough left for it to hover there awhile. I need mine for a class next term oer I would have waited .
