I got an email from EP Levine that they have an Epson promotion going on that gives an instant rebate of $1000, making it $1,495.
There is nothing on the Epson site about this, so I'm not sure how they got this promotion.
This is valid from July 25th to Aug 31st, in case someone was interested in getting one of these.
This is what the email read:
Epson has announced a $1000 INSTANT REBATE on the Stylus Pro 4900. Who would think that they would offer such a generous rebate on a new model so soon? They must have a ton of them. In any case, take advantage as this reduces the price to a mere $1495. We can honor this price on orders placed with us that are filled between July 25 and August 31. Sorry, this cannot be applied to sales previous to July 25. Call or email us with your order. Printers can be picked up here at EPL or we can arranged drop-ship via truck* at no cost.
*Lift-gate and/or inside delivery not included. Call us for details.
