Help about prices...
« on: July 02, 2013, 03:18:10 PM »
Hello, i´m new here. I would like to know if somebody here bought something in "Get it Digital"online store, because i´m very interested in some articles from this store, and i´m not sure about how much can we trust them because they have amazing prices compared with other stores like Adorama or Bhphotovideo!
Thanks

Adorama and B&H are authorized Canon dealers ... GID is not (refer to the attached Canon Authorized Dealer List in USA).
I've never used GID, but seeing stupid deals like this one (see the screen shot below) http://www.getitdigital.com/package.php?id=2591 on their front page makes me wanna stay very far away from such stores ... reputable/reliable stores do not resort to such $hitty bundle offers.
Also, you may want to check this blogpost http://gidripoff.blogspot.com/ I came across.
But if you are getting a good deal on a specific item and don't get suckered into buying stupid bundles, I suppose no harm in buying from GID as they seem to have good customer service rating on ebay.

I used Get It Digital for my 5DIII, and it arrived fine.  For 2500, I was willing to put up with some hassle, but didn't have any issues.  GID is not an authorized dealer but it's an ongoing debate whether or Canon offers warranty coverage under these cases.
