FS will only match BB, they will not beat it by 10%. Besides Black's is $749.99 and then I am sure there are others that are less.

In my experience, they always beat it by 10% of the difference. It is in their price match policy.

In case anyone is wondering Mostly Digital is down to $687.99 on the D5000 kit... and I just got back from Futureshop where I got them to pricematch +10% so I paid $680. Should make a great Xmas gift for the wife and I can still get them to match/refund the difference if the price goes any lower for Boxing Day. :D

You make an interesting comment...about boxing day prices. I tried to get FS to give me back $350 on a TV and Home theatre in a box that they marked down for boxing day and they would not. The line went something like "FS does not honor boxing day prices as they are special promotions and if you read the fine print these are not included in the price protection." I literally had to repurchase the items and then wait until january 4th (when they started to take returns) and return the system on the old receipt.

Horrible customer service if you ask me! Because of this I try to shop at Visions more now.

Yeah, funny cause I took printouts from both Mostly Digital and Aden to Futureshop to get them to pricematch. They guy said he could match Aden no problems but it would have to be final sale (ie. no returns) since that is Aden's policy. He looked up Mostly Digital and their site didn't say any specifically on this so he was able to pricematch against the lower price and I can also return it within 30 days if necessary. Works out well in case my wife doesn't want it although I think that is unlikely. :)

Nikon Canada will not service any grey market import so if you get a DOA, etc. you will have to ship it all the way back to the States. If Aden Camera is selling the kit for $699 Cadn I will pay a bit more for the peace of mind.

If you're talking about save the GST coupon, it doesn't work with PMs

I just PM'd with BB with Mostly Digital (thanks OP!). At the moment, BB is selling the D5000 for regular price (849.99) and FS has a sale going on, selling at (749.99).

My final price came out to be 671.79 or 760 if you include all taxes.

EDIT: sorry by OP i meant whoever first posted the MostlyDigital link :P

Nice, you beat my price by $9. :D

Didn't think to get it from Best Buy since their current list price is higher... ah well, lesson learned. Either way I'm happy with the deal!
