Photographers that use Nikon Professional Services, or who were considering doing so in the future, have two new options to check out as the company expands its offerings in the United States.
These two new levels include Pro+ and Platinum+, both of which include all of the services of Nikon Professional Services’ Pro plan plus all kinds of perks ranging from priority shipping and repair to access to events and perks when buying new Nikon equipment.
There are some qualifications to meet, however, if you would like to join one of these plans. To start, you need to be 21 years of age or older and living in the United States.
Here’s where things get a little more difficult for some of us. You need to own no less than two pieces of qualifying equipment and two Nikkor lenses. For some of us just aspiring to own one of each, that’s a somewhat steep hill to climb to get access to all kinds of Nikon services.
Pro+ costs $USD 150 per year and includes all of the Pro plan features and 5 equipment loans, 3 clean and checks, 20% off of repairs, no-charge overnight shipping on warranty repairs, loaners, and a welcome gift of some kind.
The Platinum+, coming in at $USD 300 per year, gives you all of that and a one-time use coupon for 10% off of a new Nikon product (max value $USD 300), 10 equipment loans, 5 clean and checks, 25% off of repairs, loaners, a premium welcome gift, and no charges for overnight shipping on warranty repairs.
