15% Off at Canon Refurbished Store
« on: November 30, 2011, 05:50:35 PM »
I just got an e-mail from Canon this afternoon. 15% off refurbished SLRs and Lenses at the Canon refurb store. I think you have to be a subscriber to their e-mails. Looks like they provide unique codes for each e-mail. But, here is the weblink (doesn't show the code unfortunately. I already used mine. Sorry)

Wow, that could get you a 5D2 body for $1700. Damn tempting.

Probably use it until the 5D3 arrives and then sell it at little or no loss.

Hmmmm..............

Great deal on the 5d2 (where CLP is not allowed).

For all the other cameras that allow CLP; I would possibly pass.  You can buy a $5-10 broken camera on eBay. The extra 5% could really help on certain orders.

But this is much easier so great find.

The email came after the 1D MK IV bodies came out, or I would have went for one.

The Canon CLP does not cover lenses, only certain bodies. 

The 15% can be applied to cameras or  lenses.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is CLP?

I got a generic email from canon, with a coupon (HOLIDAY) that applies the 15% to the 5d2/7D that I tried it on.

Maybe it will work for you guys too?

Cheers!

Yes, some of use received a early code, and now the code Holiday will work for anyone.  Unfortunately, most of the "L" lenses are now sold, but the 17-55 and 25-105 are still there.

Thanks for the explanation, Mt. Spokane. BTW, this is a good reason to register your equipment and sign up for Canon's emails. After some pre-holiday budget agonizing, I pulled the trigger on the 100-400 zoom yesterday. It was sold out an hour later.

Good news for everyone else is they will almost certainly announce the II version shortly, since I placed my order. :)

Update: I did just check the site, FYI it looks like both the 7D and 5D were still available as of noon central time, as well as the 70-200 f4 IS. But, what may be one of the best deals was also still listed: the 430 EXII. With the discount, it looks like it would be just a little above $200. Last time I checked, that was less than what the previous versions were going for used on eBay. And who couldn't use one more flash?

Never noticed any Refurb other than bodies until today.  An $85 50/1.8 seems great, will be picking up to replace the 50.18 I sold for $100 ;D.  I might also pick up a $200 430ex2.

Awesome--thanks for the heads up guys! 

Just snagged a 7d, but man, at that discount I'm pondering a 5d2 as well!

Just make sure you read the fine print about there only being a 3-month limited warranty on refurbished camera bodies.

Then again, from what I have heard, the Refurb bodies et al often go through more checking and tweaking than the production bodies.  I have really been leaning more towards a refurb than a used body when prices are similar all things considered

I just tried to order a flash using the 15% off code and while trying to check out the website refused to work with Firefox....clicking the check out button had no effect. So I started Internet Exploder and that did work, but then I could not find the space to enter the "Ship11" code for the flat $5.00 shipping. I then called Canon's Customer Support, and someone answered in less than 30 seconds! He said that the special shipping offer did not apply to the 15% off on refurbed items...I said the details didn't mention that exclusion, and he quickly offered me the flat rate special and finished the order for me while on the phone.

Not sure if anyone else had that issue when buying any of the refurbed items online, but at least Canon did give me the special shipping offer, and with the 15% off as well I got a good deal on the flash. Too bad all of the good (L) lenses sold out so quickly, or maybe it was just as well :).

15% would be an even better bargain if Canon would not slap sales tax on the final invoice value... BH/ Adormama etc are cheaper cause they don't put sales tax on top when shipping to Indiana.
