Basically, you can get $50 to $100 off the camera or kit, and $100 or $150 off each Olympus lens purchased with it, for up to three lenses. The offer covers more than 40 lenses.
Here are the links for the OM-D body and 12–50mm lens kit, in black or chrome; the body only, in black or chrome; and the black body with the less expensive 14–42mm lens.
The offer is supposedly good through January 19th, which is a week from tomorrow, but don't forget that B&H is closed from Friday afternoon through Saturday evening for the Jewish sabbath.
Meanwhile, in related news, I've just gotten a Panasonic GX1 in-house to write a bit about. The GX1 isn't the most exciting camera of the X era, but it's quietly gone down in price enough to become a true bargain at only $449. (Here's the black one and here's the pewter-colored body that matches the color of the 20mm ƒ/1.7 lens.)
That's cheaper than the new Pentax MX-1, a fixed-lens, small-sensor digicam.
The Gx1 is the heir to the GF1 that was my most-used digital camera until the OM-D arrived on the scene. It should be interesting to directly compare the IQ of the GF1, GX1, and OM-D, all with the same lenses.

Featured Comments from:
Benjamin R. George: "$450 sounds like a good price for a GX1, until you notice that the G3 (same tech generation, not that much bigger, EVF built in) is currently going for $250 (body only)."
Mike replies: That's because I actually bought a G3. Any camera I buy with my own money must depreciate much faster than average. Law of the mocking Universe.
JohnMFlores: "OM-D E-M5? That camera is so 2012!"
