Canon 600 EX-RT for less than $500 (authorized reseller)

The are an authorized reseller and will have a full warranty inside the US

 the only downside is you have to pay shipping (about $25) + brokerage fee for international orders($25) but they are per order not per speedlite

Also currency exchange fee which is typically 3% but if you have a credit card that does this for free than it is pretty good

I ordered 2 so it ends up being $930 for 2 speedlights (a little less than $465 each)

if you order 4 and you are paying with a credit card with no foreign transaction fee than you can get them fairly cheaply (roughly $450 per after all fees assuming you have a credit card that will pay your foreign transaction fees)

I've been getting refurbs from Canon USA themselves for about $373 in recent months...

I would go for this if it were available but AFAIK they haven't offered this deal since april-may since you have to wait for it to be in stock and offering the 20% off refurbished accessories promo and it hasn't been in stock even for $440 in 3 weeks.

I have been waiting since June for this deal to come back so I decided to pull the trigger.

Link is http://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/309834?WT.mc_id=C126149

I do not know how often they have sales though.

$549 is the list price for new 600s, not refurbs. Big Value on ebay has them for $500. I picked up my (one) as a $440 refurb (+$26 tax, ugh).

Yep....those with patience are rewarded.
:)

I tend to just squirrel away my money and have cash on hand to pull the trigger when I see good deals come around, which they do....just have to be patient.

Still cheapest at Don's ($30 cheaper), and cheaper at Vistek and McBain. All are authorized Canon retailers.

The flashes I picked up at Don's had USA/Canada warranty cards in them.

All stores will ship to the US

Wow Don's seems really cheap since they offer free shipping to the US

not sure if there is any customs/import fee but if not that is $409 USD per flash which is pretty insane since its new
