Noticed earlier today that john Lewis website now has the k500 k50 and k3 along with a basic selection of lenses . Not sure if they will have any in store but thought it might be useful for someone.

They are active price matchers so if you see a good price elsewhere but prefer the service...
Lurking is shirking.!

Doug,


do they seem quite pricey on their website but will pricematch the national chains (Jessops and LCE) , but dont think they'd price match SRS.

According to there website they will match any high street retailer So it should include SRS.
"We don't expect you to find a lower price at another high street competitor for the same individual product, sold with the same service conditions - but if you can, we'll match the price when you buy, or refund the difference for up to 28 days after you've purchased from us when you make a price match claim.
We have shops, call centres and a website giving you flexibility in how and when you buy from us. The level of service we offer can't therefore be equalled by online or mail-order only retailers such as Amazon or Play.com - and it's for this reason we don't match their prices. There are also some fitting and installation service conditions we take into account when we look at a price match - see below for details."



They also do click and collect, free to your local store and that includes Waitrose

I was looking at their Ts * Cs too and wondering if they will also match the warranty - taking it to two years free of charge.

Have just seen that ... their Ts & Cs don't mention it though. But maybe not transferable.

And £35 for year three ... is it worthwhile?
