Canon has recently increased the warranties on their refurbished DSLR cameras and lenses.  The warranty on refurb powershots is still 90 days.
 
I thought I'd post this, because I still see posts from those who are not aware of the longer warranty period.
 
That might help some buyers relieve their anxiety over buying refurbished, and American Express doubles that warranty when you buy with your AMEX card.  I'd check with Amex, they do not specifically exclude Refurbished when bought from the original manufacturer, but there are always weasel words that might exclude a refurbished, words like "Original Warranty" ;)

I've previously verified with Amex that they would double the 90 day warranty on Canon refurbs - so they should continue to do it for the new 1 year warranty.

As an FYI, I received my refurbished 70-300L last Thursday and the letter in the box still stated 90 days but Canon said they just haven't updated the packaging yet.

So did you finally get 90 days warranty or 1 year warranty?

It was a 1 year warranty, they just haven't updated the literature that came in the box.

The main page of the refurbs section actually states 1 Year but within the actual description for the product, a lens for instance, states 90 days. I'm happy to see that it's actually a year now. Doing 'the needful' on a lens in a few minutes. If they give me grief, I'll just point to the fact that EVERYTHING on the main page indicates 1 Year.

Cheers!
