Not sure if this is the right place but just a note about Jessops website and Nikon D90 pricing.

Two weeks ago they had the D90 with 18-105 kit for £739.00
This week the price for the same item is £799.00

However they also have a D90 8GB bundle for £799.50 this includes the D90 18-105 lens, Centon bag, SanDisk ultra II 8GB card and a Jessops 67mm UV filter.

All well and good apart from the bundle stating it is only £60.50 more than the D90 with kit lens price. Clearly the price difference is 50 pence from the current kit. All this price juggling seems to have fried their system or at least the brains of the staff entering information into it.

Why do they keep changing the price? I could understand if every retailer did this due to currency changes etc but Argos have had the D90 with 18-105 kit at £743.00 for the last six months.

Prices change daily. If you use a site like http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk you'll see the changes in price over time. It's very cool, in addition to helping you find the best deals of course :).

I had the same problem about 1 month ago when I was purchasing my canon 550d. I had planned to purchase the camera with the 18-135mm lens and Jessops where offering the package for £749, which is a very good price in the UK. The next day as I was about to purchase the price had gone up to £1050, which is the most expensive price I have seen for this package. Had to buy it with 18-55 and tamron 70-300 as that was all I could afford.

I used to avoid linking to that site too often but now that the PriceGrabber links on the CameraLabs front page have disappeared I guess doing so isn't going to harm Gordon's income particularly. There are still plenty of PriceGrabber links on the individual review pages though. Confusing. :?
