600 refurb is back in stock - hurry if you want one.

Thanks man, I got one!!

I'm wondering though...Why the heck are they charging me sales tax for?!?!?!?

Does Canon have facilities in Lousiana or something?!?!

That kinda blows...had to do like $60+ in freaking taxes.....not used to that buying online. Still, total was like $406, better than anything else I've found so far but still....WTF?

Glad so many people were able to get in on it.

They seem to charge sales tax to most states - still a good deal on the flashes and higher end glass.

The cash back sites like Fatwallet normally offer around 2% cash back on the refurb gear as well...so that can help offset the taxes.

Yeah, I was just contemplating going back to the trough for a 2nd one, and found they were out.

Hey, does anyone know what kind of warranty you get from Canon on these refurbs?

90 days - doubled to 180 days if you used an Amex. Some other credit card companies won't double the warranty on refurbs - you'll have to check with them. I've verified that Amex does.

Hmm...yeah, I likely should have used Amex...I pretty much only buy what I can pay for in cash, unless it is some type of 6-12mos 0% financing type deal.

Oh well, maybe if they come up again I'll do Amex, as that I think I do want a 2nd one at these prices.

I signed up for the Canon Pricewatch email to send me a note if they come up refurb again.

Well, this blows...and I don't know what happened.

I had the refurb page open.
I clicked refresh, and the 600ex-rt showed as available with Add to Cart enabled.

I kept trying to add to my cart, but it wouldn't. I tried with 2x different browsers...still no good. Other items I could add to my cart.

Then after many refreshes and trying this over and over....ad updated and now you can't add to cart.

WTF?

:(

I wish there was a way to have an email notification be sent when they're in stock or something. That $370 price tag sure is a bargain. Guess I'll just have to keep checking every 5 minutes...

Well, I ended up buying a couple of these at $499 because some family were having a sweet 16 birthday party over the weekend and the photographer backed out at the last minute.

My wallet is sad from the beating it took but I am very happy with the lights! (And I know my cousin will be happy with the photos as well!)

I just signed up but unfortunately refurb prices went back to the normal $440ish, so I'll just have to wait until another sale comes around. [sigh]
