I saw the headline "new bigger savings from B&H". The lens I purchased yesterday, the 24-70 f2.8 ii is now $2099 vs $2049 I paid yesterday. How is this better??? My attempt at posting this earlier was blocked.

over reacting much?

No I don't think I'm over reacting. I got the lower price and my lens is in transit. I find it offensive that a new "better deal" is being hyped, that is not a better deal, and when I point this out, my post is blocked. Do you understand that logic?

Wow... you saved 2.3% woop-de-do. Hardly a big deal.

I just picked up a 100MM 2.8L Macro for $869 plus free shipping from B&H.  I feel it was a good deal, no?

"caveat emptor"

The only surprise I had was that she didn't also state... "I'm jumping ship and buying Nikon..."

So I'm guessing that the OP was a big fan of JCPenny's everyday low pricing as the business of sales and special deals for anyone including repeat customers and bulk orders is offensive to all humankind, eh Comrade?  ::)

Guess I'm just used to the pricing games as I'm used to online pricing for electronic and consumer goods ever since the idea of Black Friday was first invented by places like CompUSA.  Really people, it is a game.  Go play it and get your best price.

BTW, CAPITALISM WON!

This site is hosted by a US company, so it is a de facto a US site and as such, are required by US law to disclose any financial consideration they receive for reviewing or recommending gear or stores.

Just sayin'...

It's an advertisement. That's why it says "Ad Post." Your point doesn't apply.

The individual that wrote the second ad was likely not the same individual that wrote the first ad.  It's a big company, they probably had no idea that what it said countered the 1st ad...

They honored the price for you, so I'd give them the benefit of the doubt and move on... Peace...  :)

That is just SOOO not true. If the company is setup in say, Canada, and registered there as a corporation it does not magically "become" a US company when it uses hosting services in the US. Also, it would most likely not be a publicly traded company due to the size so again, not having to disclose anything other then on it's tax forms. Privately held corporations, LLCs etc. don't have to disclose anything to the public about where they make a profit or income.

In defnce of the OP, it is true that prices go up for certain items covered by Canons MSRP policy as related to Rebates.
 
It is not the fault of Canon Rumors, and some prices also go down.
 
I've written to the New York State Attorney General's office to complain about deceptive pricing, but its fallen on deaf ears, and now with Canon's new MAP policy, the rebates tend to be real for most of the camera stores in the country.  The smaller ones, in particular, benefit greatly from the rebate deals.
