The Deal Digest: Canon Rebates Expire In 12 Days

By Anthony Thurston on August 18th 2014

Let’s take a break from the mirrorless realm and focus a bit on some deals from our good friends over at Canon. I mean, at least SOME of you shoot Canon still… right?!? :)


Today’s deals, unfortunately, are not instant savings. These are old fashioned (fitting, for Canon really) mail-in rebates, meaning you get to pay full price and then get a check in the mail from Canon at a later date. Not ideal, but still a nice savings if you can take the full price hit up front.  The rebates range from $20 to over $200, but most fall within that $50 to $150 range.

These rebates expire on August 30th too, so if interested, act soon! You can find all of the Canon rebates over on B&H here.

    I guess they have to keep their retail prices at some kind of standard so they can offer some kind of sale, but I would have to say that I agree with Matthew, I have never bought a lens at full retail or even 100 dollars off, it’s always a few hundred or more to an effect of like 35% off.

    Rebates are not the way to sell more lenses.

    I get that $200 is $200 but these rebates are the savings equivalents of less than 10%.. not that I’m ever expecting some sort of 50% blow out deal on glass or anything, they are just underwhelming sales. .

      They’re underwhelming because they’re so incredibly common. In fact if you pay the normal price, you’re almost an idiot in my personal opinion. It sounds mean to say, but honestly as someone who has been around this for 10+ years, simply put both Canon and Nikon have rebates running more than 50% of the year, if not more than 75%…

      Stinks that these are MIR rebates, though, as most of the year they’re instant rebates.

      I agree. It’s completely ridiculous.

      While I agree that they are underwhelming, as you said $200 is $200. Id rather spend $2800 than $3000 any day. So while they may not be huge savings, they are big enough that I thought they were worth noting at the very least.

      Sorry Anthony, Its not that I don’t think its worthy of noting. Specifically, the fact a deal is ending is worth note. It’s just more of a gripe with the actual Deal itself.
