Do you know if this rebate can be used in conjunction with the $400 mail-in rebate on the Pixma Pro 9000 Mark II?

Seems like DigitalRev has the best prices on the 7D...lower than BH and Adorama.  Is it possible that this already reflects the rebate?  Has anyone had any experience with this company?  Are they reputable, or do they engage in the same shenanigans we see out of a lot of the "too-good-to-be-true" price merchants?

 I would also like to know if these  2/20/11 rebates will be able to be applied  in conjunction with the $400 mail-in rebate on the Pixma Pro 9000 Mark II and the $500 rebate on the Pixma Pro9500 Mark II.

Any word?

Digitalrev is based out of Hong Kong, there's a good chance you'll have to pay customs taxes when it gets delivered. Also rebates are usually only through authorized US retailers.

You will also end up with a "International warranty" (U.S. excluded). Anything goes wrong within the warranty,  Canon U.S.A. will not touch it.

No worries if you already bought the camera.  You likely didn't miss out on a discount.  Dealers are notorious about raising prices at rebate time.  The claim is that Canon makes them do it.

Prior to the last rebate at Christmastime the 7D body-only was $1499USD.  Rebate time jacked the price to $1699 and then the $100 rebate brought the price back down to $1599, a higher price than the pre-rebate one.  Once the rebate ended, the price went all the way down to $1469.

I've found that LENS rebates are actually true rebates....

That doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If what you said is true, then that means when Canon does a rebate, less people will buy the camera as the price will be more. Therefore, Canon would anticipate overall less sales with the rebate. So if that was true, then Canon would deter potential sales by releasing the rebate. Why would they want to halt sales?

In the worst case scenario, they (being the retailers) keep the price the same and simply keep the entire rebate for themselves. But it makes no sense whatsoever that they would RAISE the price, because they'll be shooting themselves in the foot.

since its been happening for a couple of years now, and Canon cameras fly out the door, your assumption of fewer sales isn't valid.

Most cameras are sold at big box stores like best buy, and buyers see rebate and hurry to get one before it ends.  Another factor is that the camera retailer must give the rebate at the time of sale, and later file a application for a refund or credit for the money they advanced.  They don't like this, and just bumping the price $100 or $200 eliminates the drain on cash flow. 

Last fall, on the day the rebates came out, I checked the web site of a large retailer, and while I was viewing it, the price of the 7D jumped $200.

So you're saying that the net price will not change, as B&H will simply raise the price by $200, so the total cost to the consumer is still $1479?

YOU ARE RIGHT.

I've been eyeing the Canon 7D literally, everyday since Oct of 2010, on BestBuy.com (saving up money) and I ran into this post. I was so excited to see that I'll be getting the 7D for $1,698 THEN $200 rebate, but I checked BestBuy.com again and the price for the 7D went up to $1,899.

Clever marketing Canon, VERY clever!
