    Hi guys,

    Panasonic G5 with 14-42mm lens on groupon for £499.
    Unsure as to the 3 year extra warranty and cashback, but they're a UK company so will see what happens once I get a receipt.
    Cheapest body only UK price I could find was Mathers of Lancashire at £525

    Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera

    Deal valid until tomorrow evening!

    Might be worth phoning them and asking re cashback - £80 cashback on the G5 so that would make it £420 + you can also get 5% topcashback on Groupon (£25) so that would make it less than £400 - bargain!

    I didn't think to check quidco/topcashback!!!!
    Do you know of any way of getting the cashback without cancelling order and reordering?

    :frown:

    £80 cashback is on the 14-42x kit, on the normal 14-42 kit it is £50 cashback I think.
    On their website they seem to provide links to cashback offers on some of their compact cameras, so fingers crossed.

    Just checked and the offer retailer Crampton and Moore are an official Panasonic retailer so the cashback and 3 year warranty offer should be valid (as they are not specifically excluded from the 3y warranty, such as amazon/jessops/currys)

    And I've just ordered a second g5, and cancelled the first one so I could take advantage of the quidco cashback :cool:

    £20.83 cashback through quidco (worked out on pre VAT price)
    £50 cashback from panasonic

    End cost: 429.16 including 14-42 lens

    SRS are selling 14-42 unboxed at £79, so in my mind, getting the body for £350.

    Oops - yes, sorry missed that - it is indeed £50 with this lens and £80 with the x lens.

    No you would have to cancel and re-order to get tcb/quidco cashback as it can only track the sale when you go via the cashback site. Clear cookies first if doing this then use the cashback site link to make sure it tracks. (I find tcb more reliable for tracking - had a few problems with quidco tracking and so no longer use them).
