So I ordered a Zeiss 4.5-14x44 silver scope from SWFA a few days before Christmas so that I could take advantage of the rebate Zeiss was offering. I placed the order and a day or so later got an email that they were out of stock. They were expecting a shipment any day and that they would fill my order then. I spoke with customer service who assured me that Zeiss would honor the rebate as long as my scope was on backorder by 12/31, when the rebate ended even if the shipment had not come in by then. I accepted this and sent them an email yesterday to see if the shipment had come in. Today I get an email saying I would not be getting a scope because they oversold them and that this scope was being discontinued and they did not get enough to fill their orders. The worst part is that I could have ordered this from someone else prior to the rebate deadline of 12/31 and saved $100. I really feel that this was unethical and will certainly not be buying from them again.

Call Doug at cameralandny and tell him what happened to you. I would bet after he hears what happened to you, he will make you a customer for life if he has the scope you are looking for.

Dang! I'm surprised they didn't offer you some other sweet deal to make up for it. Always had good luck with swfa, hate to hear this.

Fastbs,

They did offer me something. They told me they had a number of refurbished Zeiss scopes I could purchase. No mention of any discount or any other deal. What a joke. The funny thing is I would have looked at a Leupold VX 3 as well or possibly a Sightron.

Now I'm in trouble. You guys turned me on to cameraland. This place blows away any other place I have shopped for scopes. Prices are unbelievably good.
