Nikon Summer Lens Bundle Instant Rebates

Nikon Summer 2015 Instant Rebates

Nikon has launched a new bundled instant rebate program through June 27 that allows you to bundle up to 17 lenses, 3 speedlights and 2 teleconverters with a Nikon DSLR for stackable rebates (i.e., there is no limit on the number of instant rebates you can claim).

B&H has a single Nikon promo page that breaks down the current rebates. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
