E-3 Flash-back promotion - New date set?

According to Photozine, see http://www.ephotozine.com/article/Ol...Back-Promotion, the flash-back promotion has been extended to December 31st 2008. Viewing the U.K Olympus website there is no mention of any extension of the date. The announcement was alleged to have been made on 15th August. Perhaps Ian could throw some light on this announcement.

Just checked your link and got 'page not found'.Looks like the info has been pulled?

Re: E-3 Flash-back promotion - New date set?

Hi Folks, Just had a look at the following page on Oly GB's site,http://www.olympus.co.uk/cameras/?_s_icmp=oukprod001
which displays the following text;

Olympus E-3 Flash-Back Promotion!
Olympus is offering all purchasers of the award-winning E-3 a free FL-50R wireless flash! All you need to do to be eligible for this promotion is purchase an E-3 between 1 June and 31 December 2008, register it online, and claim your free wireless flash by 31st January 2009. More

However clicking on the "more" button takes one to a page listing the closure date at August 31st.

Re: E-3 Flash-back promotion - New date set?

Have visited Ephotozine site and in the search site box I typed in - Olympus E-3 flash-back. This brought up a page with the second item down quoting
the 15th August as the date when the offer was extended to 31st December.
Try it !! Keith.

I have telephoned Olympus this morning (26th) and I was told that the end date for the flash-back promotion is now 30th September. I would still like to see it in print on their website though!! Keith.

Hi there,
I have received an email from Kirstie at Oly customer services in Watford this morning which says the free flash offer is extended to 31st December 2008 - I'm a very happy bunny!
