A new round of Canon Lens Mail-In Rebates has gone live, covering the period of March 1-28 in 2015. Just like before, the rebates are in the form of a prepaid American Express gift card (not a paper check). You can see participating lenses at Amazon. Each eligible lens has the mail-in rebate offer on its product page. This is a direct link to the PDF form.
The previous round of Canon mail-in rebates ended on 2/28/15. The camera rebates were not carried forward, but the price of the Canon 5D Mark III body only officially dropped to $2500 (without rebate) at various authorized dealers such as Amazon and Adorama (page down to see all the bundles with various free accessories).
However, if you don’t mind mail-in rebates, and you have use for a Pixma printer and photo paper, you can get a lower after mail-in rebates if you do one of the bundles. At B&H Photo your price is $2250 after a $250 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express gift card) with the 5D Mark III body only and Pixma Pro 100 and 50pk Canon 13×19″ photo paper and camera bag and 32GB SD and extra Watson battery.

It’s not just 500-packs of toilet paper. Costco has cameras too and at the moment they are offering the Panasonic FZ70 superzoom for $250 thanks to an instant savings discount ending by 3/29/15. If you are not a Costco member, you can buy it with a 5% surcharge, so in this case $250 + $12.50 = $262.50. The kit also includes a camera bag and 16GB SD card, both Panasonic branded. With free shipping. Sorry, a rotisserie chicken is not included
Costco memberships are $55/year or $110/year for Executive (you earn 2% rewards up to $750 in rewards). Sometimes however they have special new member promotions that get you a handful of household freebies – including the rotisserie chicken – well you get a certificate for it so you can grab it whenever it’s convenient, they won’t force you to eat chicken the moment you sign up
Speaking of Costco, their relationship with American Express as the main credit card of choice at B&M stores will end on 3/31/2016 (next year). So if AMEX exclusivity (for the B&M stores; website is more flexible) was the main reason you didn’t become a member, there might be better payment options.
