Actually, that isn't true. Prior to coming to Adorama I was a legal assistant in the UK, and the law is as follows:
When a retailer displays a product for sale, legally it is giving you 'an invitation to treat', which means it is inviting you to make an offer to buy. The retailer can refuse...
I passed on your comments to the Used Department Manager (You are aware that we will always make every effort to price match to equally reputable retailers on all goods, new and used?......even going a little below if we can!)
I would love to get an example. I'm actually surprised to see this as we always consciously make every effort to price our gear cheaper than both B&H and KEH. (Neither have available an Xt2 now). Possibly you didn’t compare with the same grade level?
Actually, Adorama's regular service also offers free expedited (1-3 business day) shipping on numerous items.
The Adorama VIP 360 program, offers:
Free Drops & Spills warranty on all purchases during active membership
Free 2 day Guaranteed Delivery - or less - on VIP360 items
60 day return...
Well, of course not! We sell items in a range from X up to D dependant upon condition, and therefore the price we sell at varies hugely thru F G V E- E E+. So the estimated resale value will vary hugely, as well.
If I thought for a second that you were being taken for a ride, I'd be on it all the way.
But checking here: https://www.keh.com/sell/fuji-x-e2-black-digital-camera-body-16-3-m-p-222637.htmlit looks like they are offering between $55 - $148 for a used Fuji X-E2
Yes, you would get a better deal on the new gear if you complete a trade at the same time. re: gift cards, they are usually sent out in the package with the new gear. But email me with the SKU# of the new item and I'll double check for you.
BTW I believe you might also get a tax break...
You need to be aware that if you sell your gear via a retailer you will net around 70% of the expected re-sale price (if you are trading up, probably a bit more).
If you'd like to email me: Helen@adorama.com with a list of the items you are hoping to trade (with an idea of condition) I'm...
Thank you so much for your feedback, which is very much appreciated. I made sure to copy it to our Used Department manager to share with his team, and I know that it will make their day!
Please feel free to contact me directly at any time if you have any additional questions or concerns...
Thank you! I would always recommend that any forum member with a query on an Adorama order contacts me directly for any issue, rather than going via the Cs call center. You will get a personal service, and know who you are talking to:smile:
The issue is that the rewards are generated automatically and do relate to whether the reward was in place on the date of the order. The staff in the Cs call center can only report on what they see on the screen, however, following your email to me I can assure you that the 4% reward is being...
No, Adorama doesn't print the logo on anything - tho' there is an option to allow the logo on the back page of a photobook and take a $2 discount!
I hope the difference is, that AdoramaPix is better??!! :wink:
I ran this by our CS Manager at AdoramaPix, and he responded:
Hi, Jpegs would be great, we do accept 8 bit tiff files if he feels more comfortable with that.
We do not add sharpening if he wants his images a bit sharper he should add some at his end.
Actually, Adorama gives a 90-day warranty on all used items, which includes a 30-day returns policy! (and we have around 25,000 pieces in the used department warehouse at any given time.....)
If you ever need advice, or after-sales suport - with any order from Adorama Camera, I'm only an...
I think we're very fortunate that we have such an opportunity to drop into virtual conversations like this right across the Internet, between 100s of thousands of other people who feel as we do about photography - and find out what you like about us as well as what we could do better.
As retailers we are controlled by the manufacturers and distributors in more than simply accessibility to the products; discounts that we have previously been offered are being withdrawn on a daily basis as both Canon and Nikon struggle to recover from the earthquake and tsunami. In addition...
You said you went to "an Adorama store"; we've only ever had one store as it is a family-owned business, and that is in NYC. I can only apologize for the poor level of service you received 20 - 30 years ago, but please assurred that the business as it is run today bears little...
Thanks Andrew! If I can explain; because you are overseas you selected UPS shipping - Streamlite is only offered as either a free shipping or standard shipping option (see my post above)
We can ship the films USPS, although if a package is mislaid in transit you will have to...
I'm sorry that you've had an unsatisfactory experience with shipping from Adorama.
Streamlite is offered as either a free or economic option for customers who prefer not to pay for UPS shipping.
However, UPS is still available for customers who prefer it. To Florida you will generally be...
They're currently o b/order with no ETA - but if you place an order we don't charge your cc until they are actually shipped (so if you were to find one earlier, you only need drop me an email to cancel).
We're also expecting a house brand battery in fairly soon, as well as a non-branded charger.
Thanks so much for the recommendation - BTW the return periods for items ordered from Adorama Camera has now been increased from 14 days to a full 30 days from the date of delivery!
If you ever need any advice or after-sales support with an order from Adorama, please don't hesitate to drop me...
I'm strictly amateur - with a Canon compact - but my daughter lives to dance and I've been thinking about taking more serious portraits of her, and my Dad recommended the Panasonic Lumix. So I may be asking for advice here myself!
Anyway, I'm here for you all whether it's regarding Adorama...
