Re: 200 Trade in bonus

I had a look at the Wex site today and they have got nine used E-M1 Mk I bodies for sale. I wonder how many of these are the result of the 200 trade in bonus? They have just reduced the price of some of them by 20-80, presumably to get more consistency in the prices. I was surprised to see that they have rated mine as grade 8, as I thought it was in excellent condition. However, they spent over an hour inspecting it and noted down every tiny bit of missing paint and wear to the finish.

I think the trade in bonus is a good way to upgrade to the Mk II as the total allowance of the trade in price and 200 bonus was probably more than I could have realised by selling my camera privately. Also by selling to Wex I know that they are not going to come back to me if they encounter any problems in the future.

Re: 200 Trade in bonus

I could be wrong but my understanding is that the deal only applies to interchangeable-lens cameras.

The wording on the Wex site is: 'Trade in any working digital camera before the 30th June 2017 for a new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and receive 200 Trade-in Bonus.' Perhaps it varies from dealer to dealer so the only way to be sure is to contact them.

Re: 200 Trade in bonus

MPB have a couple of used mkii at 1699; no bonus, of course, so this looks a bit optimistic to me:

Re: 200 Trade in bonus (Resistance Is Futile)

Picking up an MK2 tomorrow afternoon from LCE in Guildford (working away in Dorking so closest store).

200 trade in on my E-PM1 eases the pain somewhat.

Can't wait, I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve.............

Re: 200 Trade in bonus

Wonder if Jessops will take any camera in exchange?

Well Matt I have traded with jessops for years well before they went bankrupt a few years back. I had a good relationship with the manager who always did good by me. But alas he's moved to another branch, their trade in price was the least tempting for me, I therefore traded in my em1 with SRS the price difference was over 100!
Kind regards Mike

Re: 200 Trade in bonus

Just a reminder that the 200 trade in bonus offer for the E-M1 II is due to end today. Of course it is possible that Olympus will extend it as they did before or introduce another, possibly better, offer.

Re: 200 Trade in bonus

I've been using hdewcameras.co.uk for many years, suspect they are grey imports but pricing is very good and Olympus let me register the camera and lenses and extended the warranty. They don't offer the trade in but their prices are better than that offer anyhow.

I've bought several items from HDEW and can't fault them. Unlike Panamoz, they always answer the phone if you need to talk to someone!
