Canon is now offering a CarePAK PLUS package for free on a number of their most sought after cameras and lenses. For select Canon bodies and lenses bought from authorized Canon retailers between April 30th and July 8th, Canon will provide an extended 13-month warranty that covers your purchase from all manners of ailments.

As a nice kicker to the deal most of these items are also offering rebates of hundreds off and packed with items like extra batteries and so on, and also happen to be among Canon’s finest offerings in both body and lens departments (list at foot).


What does CarePAK PLUS include? Here’s a shortlist:

Protection from Accidental Damage
Protection from kids, pets, and life including accidental damage such as drops, spills, power surges and other unforeseen events.

Additional Hardware Coverage
No more worries! Receive additional hardware coverage from excessive wear and tear on all mechanical and electrical issues.

Priority Service and Free Returns

$0 Deductible
No Deductible for any repair or replacement, ever.

CarePAK PLUS is transferable. Purchase a product as a gift for someone else or sell it during the covered period and transfer the benefits to someone else.

Always Genuine Canon Products
If your product cannot be fixed and needs to be replaced you will receive the exact same model, or better, always!

NEW – Image Recovery
With Image Recovery, we can help retrieve your lost or corrupted images or videos, so you won’t lose your precious memories. Included only with Cameras and Camcorders.

Of course CarePAK PLUS can be purchased generally if you do it within 90 days of purchase, but it can run into the hundreds of dollars. So if you were in the market, and you don’t particularly like to always baby your gear or live in fear, this would seem an opportune moment.
