    I have just got an email from Olympus about their summer 2015 promotions. In my case these relate to Spain but it looks like similar promotions are available in many European countries - full details for each country here:
    Olympus Summer Special

    The offers for Spain (full details here) are:
    100 euro cashback on buying an E-M10
    150 euro on the m.Zuiko 9-18mm
    150 euro on the m.Zuiko 14-140mm II
    125 euro on the m.Zuiko 75-300mm
    50 euro on the m.Zuiko 45mm

    The Spain page I linked above also has an offer for buying an E-M1: trade in any old camera and receive 200 cashback and a free HLD-7 grip. Unlike the others listed above, I can't find any more details of how to claim this one or whether other conditions apply - they do say the old camera can be any model.

    Edited after posting to add:
    This applies to purchases from today until the end of August. Terms and conditions in English are here. One of the key terms is this:
    This bonus-promotion is limited to new Products which have to be purchased and claimed in one of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United Kingdom. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and residents of one of the listed countries. Furthermore participants are required to have a valid bank account in the country of purchase.

    Guess it won't work for those of us in North America who bought the 45mm from amazon.co.uk? They're asking for a "sort code" for the direct deposit, which looks different from the routing numbers that are used in the states.

    The campaign documents specifically state that this doesn't apply to international purchases. You have to be a resident a have a valid bank account in the country the purchase was made.
    With this cashback I could've gotten the O45 I also recently bought from Amazon UK at basically the same price, and get it locally without the shipping delay. Oh well...

    It only applies to purchases made from today too. I bought my Oly 45mm on Saturday so I can't make a claim either, but then it's only a £10 difference between the price I paid on Saturday and the price I'd get it for today after cashback, and tbh I'd rather not have the hassle of making an online claim for the sake of £10.

    If I hadn't bought the lens though, an EM-10 would be in my cart already. £304, now that's a good offer.

    The 75-300mm lens is a tempting deal though, after Cashback the lens would be £259 if bought via Amazon.

    I'm sorely tempted by the 75-300, but then I hardly ever use my 45-200, I just don't "need" that FL often. Must resist!
