Fujifilm Tries To Prevent X100VI Limited Edition Scalping

Many Asian retailers that are selling the Limited Edition Fujifilm X100VI have implemented measures to prevent scalping and fotograficzny created a list of what each retailer is doing. I have posted the translated policies below:

The sweepstakes is not open to just anyone. In order to enter the sweepstakes at all, one must have a purchase history at a particular store.

At Yodobashi Camera, you had to buy something between March 7, 2022 and March 6, 2024, and then register that purchase with the store’s loyalty card. At BicCamera, a purchase history between March 15, 2022 and March 14, 2024 is required.

Did you notice that these are dates from the past? Of course, they are. This is a countermeasure against scalpers. The purchase history requirement means that you can’t sign up for the lottery at 10 different stores if you haven’t shopped at them. How many electronics stores do we shop at? Usually at one, up to two.

Also, you can’t register all family members for the lottery – only those who have already shopped at a particular store. Rarely does everyone in the family have a loyalty card.

The requirement for a history, on the other hand, makes it impossible to create one on the sly, buying anything for JPY1,000 just to register.

At BiCCamera, applications for the lottery will be accepted from March 15, from 8:00 am, until March 18, 8:59 pm.

At BiCCamera, the results of the lottery will be announced on March 27 at 5:00 p.m. If you win, payment for the goods will be automatically charged. You can only pay with a card that does not require 3DSecure authorization. If you fail to charge your card, the drawing will be automatically canceled.

Yodobashi Camera
At Yodobashi, entries for the raffle will be accepted from March 18, 11:00 am, until March 21, 10:59 am.

At Yodobashi, the results will be announced on March 21 at 6:00 p.m. Lottery winners will be able to place orders until March 23, 11:59 p.m. – after which time the drawing will be canceled.

In both cases, shipping on March 28.
