Nikon D5500 w/ 18-55 VR II Kit Brand New $499.99 at Best Buy YMMV

$499.99

Just got back from my local Best Buy in Hanover, MD (Arundel Mills Mall) and saw several open-box Nikon D5500 with the 18-55mm kit lens for $500! Normally $850.

Online inventory does not show any open-box D5500 s, but they had at least 4-5 of them at my local store. I went in there looking for an open-box Sony A6000, which they didn't have, but then I saw these. Very tempting. Best price by far I have seen for this kit.

What am I missing SD'ers? This kit right now is selling for $850 most places (e.g. BHPhoto, Amazon, Best Buy...). $500 for an open box (most likely a Christmas return) seems like a fantastic price. Even refurbished D5500 kit deals selling for much more garnered a good amount of attention. No love for the D5500 on Slickdeals?

You sure it was the right Best Buy? I stopped by, saw D5500 in stock, none open box.

Edit: $499.99 is price for new D5500, NOT open box. Smilie

Went to Best Buy looking for $500 open box D5500 in Columbia, MD Best Buy but found that they were selling the D5500 with 18-55 VR lens brand new for $499.99. Price is not posted online or on the online weekly ad, but I have a copy of the store ad and receipt both showing $499.99.

Edit: Call local store to see if the price is available. The deal doesn't show up on Best Buy website.

Edit 2: Added YMMV to title. Seems to be price mistake in print ad. If your store has them in stock, check the print ad in store, price should show $499.

Edit 3: Added VR II to camera lens description.

Edit 4: For anyone unable to find local stock in store, you can try calling in the order and ask them to honor the price in the store ad. The ad is valid until Jan. 9th. You could also try to order online with store delivery and ask to pricematch the store ad when you pick up the camera. Lastly, if you previously bought the camera from Best Buy after Nov. 1st, your return period was automatically extended until Jan. 16, 2016 so you shouldn't have any issues asking Best Buy to refund the difference.

Edit 5: In store print Ad is valid until Jan. 9th so there's still time to get in on the deal. If your store is out of stock, talk to a sales associate and ask them to place an online order for you. If they're being difficult, try finding another sales associate. Camera can be shipped to store, or your home. As some have also mentioned, Best Buy store inventory is notoriously inaccurate, so check out the camera cages in the store just in case, even if they say it's out of stock. Smilie

Edit 6: Today is the final day for the advertised price to get them while you can!!! As this point, most stores are out of stock so your best bet is to have a sales associate order one for you in store with home delivery. You could also try Best Buy customer service but that might be a harder sell. I hope everyone enjoys their new camera. =) (I guess it's too late to become FP?)

This was posted yesterday or the day before, I think. Same in all Best Buys in VA. it's in the circular for this week as a store-wide price.

Thanks for the head's up. I tried a search earlier but I can't find the post. I'll take this one down if needed.

It makes me wonder, though, if your circulars in MD. are different than ours just south of you. There were a bunch of these box sets in the stores here marked just like you posted.

Is there any way to prove that to Amazon? I have $500 in Amazon gift cards and would like to PM.

Edit: I'm obviously talking about the NEW D5500.

Would love to pick this up for hubby. It's not listed in SF area ads. Do I just bring in your thumbnail pix & ask them to match the price? Thx.
