Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

I regularly get discount offers from Olympus but they are all from Olympus US and in $ so are completely useless to me in the UK. Why don't Olympus UK send out offers? I might actually take them up on one if they did

Whinge over

They do cashback offers in the UK and have just emailed out the autumn ones. In a rush now but I'll find the link later if nobody beats me to it.

http://olympus-eu.sales-promotions.com/ is where you can get the details for the cashback offer, however they have just recently upped all the prices for the lenses, so with this cashback it goes back to the old prices really.

Re: Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

Phill D - yes I get the $ sign too. I have clicked onto Mr London's link and see totally different screen. I signed up to (several) Official Olympus sites, but they don't seem to be able to distinguish between .co and .com
Is there any Administrator around who might clarify which sites us UK lot should best be registered to?

Re: Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

The site for Olympus customers in the UK and Ireland is https://www.olympus.co.uk/

The drop down box at the top of this page will also give you the sites for all other regions/countries.

All Olympus offers/promotions etc. are specific to regions/countries.


Regards.

Re: Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

Peter as the offers are regional why do Olympus US insist on sending them to me via email to the UK? Bizarrely I never get any emailed promotions from Olympus UK or EU for that matter even though they have all my details from registering my gear.

Since Olympus US have your email address did you inadvertantly register for MyOLYMPUS via the US site?

If you are registered for MyOlympus via the UK site there is a tickbox in the SETTINGS area for subscribing to the OLYMPUS Newsletter, this I believe is what gets you the promotions etc. as well as "news" via email. If that is not working for you I suggest contacting Customer Support via the UK web site.

Regards.

Edit. Just a topical thought, do you by any chance get emails from Hillary Clinton as well?

Re: Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

That's an interesting point Peter. As far as I know I registered via the UK site but I'll definitely check. As for the Magazines they come from .co.uk and the Newsletters come from .eu so no real excuse. Anyway I'll definitely check the MyOlympus registration if that's possible.

Re: Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

Hi Phill - Just as confused as you. If I get time this week, I will try to unscramble the stuff I get. It would help to keep this Thread alive so we can share results.

Re: Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

So I checked MyOlympus registration going in via the UK & Ireland settings and it clearly states UK in my profile. Only slight possibility is that my email address is .com. Just by virtue of the provider it was originally set up with. Maybe this is what's confusing things? My question now is am I missing out on UK email offers as a result?

Overall this is a pretty trivial point but maybe if Ian sees this and has a spare moment whilst evaluating the mk2 then he could ask his contacts at Olympus.

Re: Does everyone get these offers from Olympus?

My email address is .com and I get the UK offers as I would expect (although they are not as frequent or as generous as I would hope ).

No. I do seem to get multiple mailings of the monthly newsletter though.
