Rebate Extended/New Rebate
« on: January 14, 2012, 12:15:56 PM »
Looking at both the B&H and Canon USA sites, it appears the 5D and 7D rebates have either been extended or a new $100 rebate is in effect. Anyway, expiration date now appears to be Feb. 4.

I believe they were extended, as were the lens rebates.

I was just looking to get a lens off of B&H but their online store is closed until tomorrow (Saturday) evening.  Anyone know if the rebate still applies tomorrow or will be over at midnight, tonight?

Rebates are supposed to end Feb. 4. B&H and Adorama both shut down for the Sabbath (Sunset Friday until Sunday a.m. I believe). If you want to buy, you better act quickly.

It is good until the 4th (Saturday).  I would assume that the 4th after 6pm EST when Adorama & B&H reopen still counts.  I didn't want to take a chance though.

Thanks!  Yeah, I was debating whether or not to get the lens and then decided to.  Went to B&H and it said the online store was down :( and I got real bummed.  They had the lowest price for the 70-200mm II.  Crossing my fingers and will wait until tomorrow 6:30p EST.

You should be ok with B&H tomorrow when they re-open.  It happened to me in November (black Friday) that I wanted to order a lens on sales until a Saturday but B&H is closed on Saturday right!  So I waited till they re-opened on that Saturday night and the rebate will still working.  So you should be good until tomorrow at midnight -1!

Good luck!

In the final days, I think Adorama had the better of the deal on the 70-200 IS II USM at $2069 vs $2074 - BH went up a tad at the end.  But BH has better UPS shipping rates.

The question on Saturday evening is a good one.  I called them about that Wednesday (I was having some administrative issues with BillMeLater at the time) and did not get a very reassuring answer.  While the online may be up, is the store going to credit the order then?  (edit - I see JR says it should work - I only talked to a sales droid)

I purchased the IS II USM Thursday and got it today UPS Next Day.  Not sure I'm happy with UPS though..  - with a hole that went through both the shipping carton and a bit through the Canon box.  Fortunately I dont see any mark on the lens case and the lens works correctly.  (Damn I want a new box now!)

You may want to check around and some other sources that may still be open or open Saturday.  Yeah, they may charge more, but if you want that lens, $300 is your base savings. 

Heck, given the shipping issue, I might have gone local and ate the sales tax.
