yes the loyalty programme...
unfortunatley i'm in the UK, and while i may be loyal to canon they are not loyal back to us here, and dont offer anything like this for us here.
otherwise i would have done this and traded in both my bodys to get something better.
unfortunatley i might be able to sell my 350d for a pittance, and as for the 40d, im not sure what i can do with the 40d... i feel its worth something..
basically it was dropped onto concrete, the screen on the back still works but has a bad crack behind the plastic on the actual screen (obscures around 3rd of the screen), the main problem is the shutter, it is now strangely sticky - when you fire a shot it sticks up, fire another it takes a photo with it stuck up, fire again the mirror goes down, fire again and it takes a photo with the mirror stuck down, and so the cycle continues, and rapid fire fps doesnt work.
my insurance company said it could be fixed for around Â£120, but given my excess and losing my no claims i opted instead to pay myself, but then was quoted around Â£350 by canon when i investigated it myself - at this point i kinda gave up on it.
