*Note: We have only heard one complaint about BigValueInc in the past, and it was about accessories missing from the box. However, BigValueInc did correct the situation in a timely manner. To save a lot of money, sometimes you’re sacrificing some service. If you do have an issue, I want to hear about it


I took advantage of their c. $2500 price for the 5DIII last week.  As expected, it's a kit minus the lens and I don't see a warranty card of any sort in the box, but the camera is plainly new (zero shutter activity) and works as it should.  I've no idea how BigValue would perform if I encounter a problem or need/want to return it for some reason, but I was pleasantly surprised by how fast they processed my order: I ordered it on Wednesday evening after they had closed for the day, they shipped it on Thursday and I received it on Friday - i.e. just as fast as if I had used B&H or Adorama (I live comparably close to all three, so free shipping takes the same short time).  I can't say whether this is typical, of course, and I've not used them before, but I've not knowingly done anything to warrant any preferential treatment from them.  So far, so good....

We all know this is B>S..It's 2499 - minus 400, not 2399. AND mail in rebate? REally?

DON'T BUY FROM A NON AUTHORIZED DEALER! Simple as that. You're will  not get warranty when you need it most. https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://www.usa.canon.com/app/pdf/dealer/CanonAuthorizedDealers.pdf

Most of those deals on Ebay are from Non Authorized dealers. USA WARRANTY is nor CANON WARRANTY! GETITDIGITAL is not CANON authorized dealer. How canon rumors can post misleading info here?

Who's misled?  Anyone who's read about Big Value etc. here (including this thread!) and elsewhere online knows that you can't expect a US warranty (which may or may not make a difference), etc., etc., and is aware that there's a degree of risk.  As I reported earlier, I received my 5DIII barely more than a day after I ordered it, it's plainly new and seems to work perfectly; and unlike three expensive cameras I've bought from authorized dealers in the past couple of years, the sensor is spotlessly clean and I won't have to return it (I just took some exciting photos of the sky at a very narrow aperture - not a speck of dirt anywhere).  If something goes wrong within the next year, well, I guess I'll find out what, if anything, the risk cost me.  Someone unwilling to take the risk knows where to buy them instead.

Lol, nonsense - ! these are not legit sellers. They pull lenses out of boxes, void the warranty. Often grey market. It' s like saying someone in a back alley  or on Craigslist sells it for 1600, so that's a new price. Sorry to disappoint $1899 is the rate right now, 15XX you'll get something shady. Portraying these 2 semi legal sellers as some sort of standard begs teh question if the OP gets a commission. HAs anybody ever gotten a 6D for less than 1600? No...If they did, we'd know about it on the forum by now... Just "I ordered it, can't wait , hahahah" messages with no results. Face it people, there's no $2K 5D3, and no $1.5K 6D - sorry, and yes I would want that too....

Well, 5 posts above yours I explained that that's exactly what happened. Brand new 6D with USA warranty (registered with Canon) for $1542 from GetItDigital. For you folks out there who are uncomfortable ordering from "non-authorised" sellers, that's fine. It's your money and you can do what you like. But don't go pontificating to those of us who would rather pay less for the exact same thing...

Nonsense is to buy something for just a little less and have no warranty! A fool and his money are soon parted :)

By that logic, if I go to Best Buy and purchase a Monster Cable and they offer me a $200 warranty on it, I would be a fool not to take it.

Sometimes I buy a camera because I want a camera, not a warranty. Canon's warranty isn't all that great anyway... they'll service the camera only if it needs repair due to a manufacturer defect, and only if the defect occurred within 1 year of purchase. And chances are very good that under these circumstances they'll repair your camera anyway even if you bought it from BigValue or GetItDigital.

So why pay for something you don't want, and you could quite possibly get for free? Only a fool would do that... but as they say, a fool and his money are soon parted.

The Funny quote "I have never heard a bad thing about GetItDigital." They have 43 negative feedback in only 6 months. What the hell canon rumors?

One example "False listing Camera not USA made. Gray market. No warranty card.   Buyer: Member id cfcsarg  ( Feedback Score Of 501)    Jul-13-13 17:32 USA Canon Model 60D +7Lens Kit: 18-55 IS, 55-250 IS, 50,650-1300, 500 +32 GB (#140638706926)"

Big Value's says WIFI/GPS right in the description.

Get It Digital says it's a US model, which would indicate it's GPS/WIFI, no?

Negative feedback on ebay means nothing. Take Adorama for example: they've had 101 negative feedback in the last 6 months (that's more than double the negative feedback of GetItDigital!), and yet they are widely known as a reputable and trustworthy seller.

What the hell, vitalboy? I'm beginning to think you are getting paid to steer people away from good deals...

I bought a 6D from BigValue and recieved a gray market copy with no Wifi or GPS (exists for markets where they are not able to use spectrum). BigValue was very nice about refunding, but beware.
cheese!
