Adorama Offering 6% Rewards on Select Cameras and Lenses

Nikon D800

If you aren’t familiar with the new “Rewards” programs running at several online retailers, it is basically a store credit deal. Essentially, if you make a purchase of a qualifying product, Adorama gives you 2% in store credit toward your future purchases.

For example, you buy a $1000 camera and Adorama gives you $20 in rewards credit. Adorama has a special right now on certain gear where they are handing out 6% rewards through May 1, 2013. That same $1000 camera purchase would yield you $60 in rewards credits instead of the usual $20. Details are on Adorama’s site on applicable product pages.

The 6% rewards applies to the following gear:

  1. Canon Cameras
  2. Canon Lenses
  3. Nikon Cameras
  4. Sony Cameras

Again, specific details are on Adorama’s site, but make sure you read them so you know when your “rewards” are issued and when they expire.
