Save $1000 on the a7r II with Trade-In Bonus

Sony a7r II with $200 Gift Card



Here's our chance to save $1000+ on the Sony a7r II. Here's the math.

Sony a7r II = $3198Instant Rebate = -$300Gift Card = -$200Trade in Bonus = -$480Trade in Value = -$?.??Grand Total = $2,218 - TIV
The a7r II's MSRP is $3,198. A trade in of an old interchangeable lens would surely get us to the $1000 savings mark. The trade-in bonus ends on April 1st but the $200 gift card from Adorama will probably go extinct first.





Receive $480 bonus from Sony if you buy the a7r II above and you trade in a camera or a lens.


I would probably add the 16-35mm f/4 lens which comes with a $100 gift card, a $100 instant rebate, and a $202.50 bonus - a $400 savings off MSRP. The lens will come in at $945 before your trade in value.










And the 55mm f/1.8 lens which comes with a $50 gift card, a $100 instant rebate, and a $150 bonus - a $300 savings off MSRP. The 55mm Zeiss will cost $698 before your trade in value.

Deal: Sony a6000 + 18-55mm + 55-210mm for $650

Image
Save $500 from MSRP on the a6000 twin lens bundle from costco. The bundle is also $150 less than from Amazon, although the lens in the costco bundle is the 18-55mm instead of the 16-50mm in the Amazon bundle. Both lenses are about equal in performance.

Now is the time to buy the Sony a7r. Save almost 50% on the cost of the a7r with the Sony VG-C1EM vertical grip. The MSRP is $2637 while the current deal sells the combo for $1396.

Sony A7 Trade In Deal is Sweeter

Image
Save $545 on the Sony A7r
The previous trade in deal saved us $460 from the MSRP of the a7r. The new trade in deal from Adorama is sweeter since the MSRP of the cameras are lower by $200.

Sony a7 MSRPs Reduced by $200
What this means for us is a savings of $545 on the Sony a7r body, $500 on the a7 + 28-70mm lens bundle, and $455 on the A7 body only. You can also add in the trade in value of your old camera for more savings.

The Sony A7 trade in offer from Adorama expires by the end of the year.
