Final Call!

We’re told by B&H Photo that this deal on the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II will end very soon.


From B&H Photo

B&H Photo is selling the Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II for $1899 after rebates for a very limited time. You must begin the checkout process to see the $2199 in cart price. There is a $300 mail-in rebate to bring the price down to $1899

I don't think so!

I don't see any reference to any rebates on the listing.

I think BuyDig already took the $300 rebate here. I'm not going to risk it.

No mention of the mail-in rebate anywhere on the site.  But, with 6 mo "same as cash" through Bill Me Later, I took the plunge.  Free shipping and a Canon USA auth dealer, too. 

It looks to me like you go online to Canon, print out the rebate form, and then submit it with the appropriate documentation so I think it will still apply.  Anyone know differently?

So I pulled the trigger with BuyDig.  Maybe should have waited for a bit and the B&H would have come along.  Any Buy Dig satisfied customers out there?

buydig seems legit and have generally very positive feedback.  i've purchased 3 or 4 times (all lenses) and have had zero issues.

I've never purchased from BuyDig, but he has good positive feedback, and as far as I can see, he sold forty five 70-200 2.8ii lenses for the past 24 hrs. In addition, he offers 30 days for returns. I think you should be fine, especially since CR guy recommended him. Enjoy your lens!  ;)

Same deal is at B&H:

Thank you for posting this! I just ordered one, been waiting forever to finally purchase this and after $300 rebate + 4% perks this is the cheapest I've seen this go for.

Now hopefully a crazy deal hits this month on the 24-70 II  ;)

Very good deal.  If only I had $1900   :-*

I bought my 5D MKII from buydig.com and had zero issues.  Good service.

Buydig is listed on the Canon Rebate website.  So go spend your hard earned cash.  Also, Mr. Rebates gives a 1% cash back for orders from Budig.com.

https://www.acbpromotions.com/canonrebates/promos.asp?promo=0117&promotitle=EF%20Lenses%20AMEX%20Reward%20Card%20[09/29/2013%20-%2001/04/2014]

Also, a poster here stated that B&H matched Buydig and included the 4% reward.

Anyone know if the US mail-in rebate would be valid for a Canadian who purchases this from B&H?

Edit:  Okay I found out it isn't valid.  Oh well.  Crazy that you actually have to start checking out to even see the discount.

There is a deal for the 24-70 II; $1,899 after rebate, plus 4% reward at B&H, unless you want an even more crazy deal than that.

There was already a deal on that one for $1699 after rebate. I purchased it and got my rebate two weeks later.
