Thread Details

Thanks to stevetom84 in the d3200 thread.

Bestbuy has a6000 open box on their website for 389.99. Came out to $421 for me so slightly worse deal than buydig if you didn't get taxed by buydig. Not sure if the buydig deal came with a free card or not.

They also have the a5000 for a pretty good price open box with free card. I was able to pick up a white a5000 open box excellent condition for $182. Combine that with shop discover, I thought it was a decent deal.

Any idea what the return policy is at BB for open-box? I can't seem to track it down on their website, and their description saying it may be missing items has me hesitant.

thanks! Surprised this didn't get more attention. Been checking everyday since I missed the $399 deal from buydig. Buydig's promo ended, they wouldn't budge on the $499 price tag. So this is the best deal so far. Picked up a6000 and a5100 (both in 'excellent' condition) for $419.24 and $333.24 shipped in CA. I checked out my local Best Buy two days ago and I was told "for future reference, we don't carry open box sony a5000, a5100, or a6000. They're very popular and any returns have to be shipped back to Sony." This was after I waited for her to finish up a sale of a A5000 to a customer. BHphoto has the A6000 (new) for $600 and a $50 gift card tax free for CA, but I am really more interested in the A5100's codec for videos. If Sony ever release a firmware update for the A6000, I'll return or sell the other. Thanks and repped!

That sucks, I would definitely call them up. How is the condition of the body itself?

Why this deal is not getting attention?? This is the slick deal, not a bunch of other stuff people are saving a few bucks. I ordered one.

Two of these threads about BB open box. so I will post my reply from there to here Wink

Dont forget to ask for the extra lens (55-200) for $149. It is in the ad if you get "this camera". So I got both today instore pickup. actually i got a new 6000 and lens for $568.25 before tax. they couldnt find my confirmation online, so I just told the young man to give me one off the shelf(it was new) but I don't think he ever knew the online order was for an open box. Of course I never mentioned it either, just showed him a print out on my phone of the order.

Oh, I got a 16g card on top of all that. WOO HOO, Merry Christmas everyone!!!

fark it. I already have a a6000 that I bought new when they first came out. I haven't even opened it yet. But I can't pass up another at half the price. Now I can shoot in stereo 3D. Wink

For those who don't care about the EVF, I would get the A5100 instead. But for $100 more, the A6000 is worth it for resell value alone. Cameras with EVFs hold their value better.

It is on their main page. The normal flyer has it listed above the camera(for the lens).
