Hot Deal: Buy an OM-D E-M5 Mark II & Get A Round Trip Flight

Howdy, shutter-friends and savvy bargain hunters, we've got a HOT DEAL for you.
E-M5MarkII_SLV_right_M14-150-2_BLK_s.jpgOur friends at Olympus are running a fantastic promotion right now where, if you buy the excellent OM-D E-M5 Mark II Micro Four Thirds camera system, they'll book you a round trip ticket within these domestic United States (sorry, Alaskans, Hawaiians, and International Readers). Given the cost of air travel these days, you're saving a few bucks off a terrific camera with one of the best image stabilization systems on the market AND now have the perfect location to test out your new gear.

With every deal, there is a catch. In this case, the process for booking the flight is a little cumbersome. In other words, prepare to jump through a few hoops, stay vigilante with necessary timelines, and be a wee bit flexible.

PURCHASE AN OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 MARK II

The most important part! Buy one new E-M5 Mark II online or in a store from an authorized Olympus retailer by NOVEMBER 15, 2016 (11/15/2016). Here's a complete list of AUTHORIZED RETAILERS, but Amazon.com is also an option. You can find a link to the camera HERE or below. It's my understanding that you can buy the body only as well as the kit, but FYI, "refurbished" models do NOT count towards this deal.

FILL OUT, PRINT & MAIL THE APPLICATION

Vital stuff here. Don't forget. You have 14 DAYS from the purchase date to fill out, print, and mail in:

  1. APPLICATION FORM (available HERE).

  2. Your ORIGINAL receipt with the date and camera circled.

  3. A photo copy of a valid photo I.D. if your address is current OR a photo copy of a valid photo I.D. PLUS a document proving your address.

Drop these forms and papers into an envelope within 14 DAYS of purchase AND no later than 11/29/2016 to the

Olympus Fulfilment Center
P.O. Box 512
292 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02115-2832


Within two weeks of Olympus receiving your application, you will receive an email with a UNIQUE BOOKING CODE. It's incredibly important to monitor your email (and spam folders!) during this time because your code is ONLY VALID FOR 14 DAYS.

FILL OUT, PRINT & MAIL THE BOOKING FORM

With your Unique Booking Code in hand, fill out the BOOKING FORM (available HERE) where you'll select THREE POSSIBLE round trip options based on Olympus' available departure and destinations. These flights must be four weeks out from when you are filling out this booking form AND within the next four months. Mail this form into the

Olympus Fulfilment Center
P.O. Box 512
292 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02115-2832


Within 5 DAYS of receiving and validating your Booking Form, a concierge travel agent will contact you about flights and availability. You then have 5 BUSINESS DAYS to make a choice or risk forfeiting your free ticket.

Please note: you CAN add additional passengers to your itinerary, BUT you are responsible for paying for the market value of that ticket.

THE FINE PRINT

Again, please make sure to head over to flywithem5.com for exact details, rules, and forms. They've also got a FAQ section, which includes participating Departure and Destination locations and contact information should you have any further questions.

WHERE TO BUY
