*UPDATE*

Below are the links to the rebate programs at B&H Photo.


EOS Rebates Here | Lens & Speedlite Rebates Here 


New Rebates

Canon USA will start a new rebate program on April 14, 2013. Expect more lenses and camera bodies to be on the rebate program this time around. You can also expect big savings on the EOS 5D Mark III.


We’ll post links to the rebate program as soon as they go live around the web. Our price watch pages (at the top right) will also reflect the new pricing as it goes live.

does any one have the historical rebates.  I am interested to see how the values changes over time (as well as which lens and cameras are included)

Next Spring??  I've never seen that Rumor! 
 
Canon has had almost continuous rebates for the last year.  Some involve only a few items and some cover a lot of items.  As long as the world economy is poor, Canon and Nikon will keep having rebates in order to keep the production lines going.  Its cheaper that way.  Shutting down a factory and restarting it later is incredibally expensive, while rebates just result in a lower profit margin, but its still profit.

Originally this program was to start until May, but was moved to mid April.

Any knowledge out there whether this will affect prices in Europe, too?
(I am expecting to purchase a 6D or 5DmkIII very soon - actually planned for tomorrow, but now I may reconsider).

Aren't the "rebates" really just the actual prices so when they say "rebate" you feel all warm and fuzzy inside (and you can justify the purchase) that you are saving $200 on that 3k purchase?

Is there a way to return it and get your money back in case there are rebates for it next week?

I intended to buy the new 24-70 2.8 L II today but my local Canon dealer told me to wait until May 1st (or 2nd ad May 1st is a public holiday here). He said that I'd save 300 Euros as Canon would start a cashback action here in Germany.

So, if you are intending to buy that zoom and if you can wait a little bit longer you might save some money.

I went home with the new Siggy 35mm 1.4 Art line instead and will buy the zoom in May  :D

what does "big saving" means in numbers? approximately, guessed from the past.
6D, 5D MK2, 7D, 550D... a lot of Glass.

300 euro?

that would mean around 2500 euro for the 5D MK3.
i don´t think that will happen. but of course it would be nice.

Well, that is what he told me... he was always reliable until now so I believe him.  I don't mind waiting another 15 days so we will see

Keep in mind that the Yes is now nearly 100 Yen to 1 USD from below 80 several months ago.

Increase margin and gives Canon room to fund rebates.

Wonder if the big whites will get rebates
