15% credit in addition to payment for the value of the trade-in. However, the trade-in values are really low, so it appears this promo is only worth it if you trade in a really old (but working) SLR/mirrorless camera, even if you get $0 in extra value.

edit: appears that 'DSLR' was changed to 'SLR', so presumably they'll accept film SLRs.

The A7 and A7R now include a free fitted case, and those cameras also have the option to add the grip for $98 extra.

It appears you can buy a beat up film SLR on KEH or eBay for under $20 and trade it in (just make sure you can send it before the end of the month when the promo expires).

They are completely ridiculous with their trade-in values. Good grief.

LIke I said, this promo only makes sense if you have a old camera (like one of those 1st gen Micro 4/3 cameras). And maybe buy multiple lenses. The A7S just started shipping so any discount is decent if you're looking for that one.

Thanks CptObvious. I'll be using this to get the A7S + FE2470 for $555 off and turning in my A77 + SAL1850. Even though the trade in value of the A77 is probably going to be $2-300 cheaper than what I can get selling it privately, there's still a decent savings to be had. Plus the trade in is effortless as BH pays for shipping and will ship it back if you cannot agree on a price. By then I'll have used the coupon already and have bought the A7S at a discount.

Just a heads up, it looks like they removed the 'D' from the DSLR requirement, so presumably they'll also accept an old film SLR for trade-in as well...

Has anyone heard back from B&H with confirmation on the quote? I went through the process of submitting my old slr, but they haven't sent me the shipping label.

I sent them my old Nex 3 DSLR with kit lens for a quote of 183. I got the coupon in my email the day that UPS received the box.

However, I could not buy the A7s lens on the website with the coupon, I had to call in to use it.

can anyone confirm if this works? I'm trying to figure out what film camera to buy on ebay so I can trade it in to get the discount. I'm trying to get an A7s. Thanks!

Gotcha. Thanks. How long between when you submitted the quote and when they sent the UPS label? I got a quote using the online form 2 days ago, immediately got an email saying to expect an email with confirmation of the quote with shipping label, but then haven't heard back.

I'm going for the A7S w/ the 70-200!

I've submitted a request for an old film camera trade in and haven't got the UPS label yet. Would they send you an email if the trade-in was rejected? Thanks!

I called and got the shipping label from B&H. I was able to trade in a beat up Rebel 2000 for $15 and the $375 credit. Thanks guys!
