Canon’s free 13-month CarePAK (free accidental damage protection for select registered products) has been extended until the end of July 2016. You can learn about the plan at Canon’s website and you can see a list of eligible Canon DSLRs and Lenses for this promotion at B&H Photo. Eligible items include the full frame DSLRs, the 7D Mark II, and a few lenses. You have to manually register for the promotion after purchase though, it does not activate automatically.
After the early adapters are fed at the trough of time (vomit-worthy poetic imagery here!), newly released digital cameras start getting free accessories with purchase, often before the first discounts arrive. Such is the case with the Canon 80D kits, all three official kits (body $1200, w/18-55 $1350, w/18-135 $1600) are getting three free accessories at B&H Photo: extra Watson battery, 16GB Extreme SDHC, and shoulder bag.
On the other hand, if you are the mail-in rebate and gift card type, there is one such bundle centered around the 80 body only at Adorama. You pay $1600 at checkout, and receive the Canon 80D body only, the Pixma PRO 100 printer, its trusty sidekick (50pk 13×19″ SG-201 photo paper), a 32GB Lexar SD card, and an extra 3rd-party charger with two 3rd-party batteries. After you make sure all is well, you submit the mail-in rebate, and if all is well, a few weeks later you will receive a $350 prepaid American Express Gift Card by snail mail, making it a $1250 after $350 MIR offer.
If you are interested in refurbished Canon SLR lenses that come with a 1-year warranty from Canon, they have a sale on a number of them (the ones on sale have a price in red ink) at the official Canon Outlet store. Unlike Amazon, the Canon Outlet store won’t let you buy out of stock items, so it’s finders keepers for these type of deals.
You can sort price (high or low) or alphabetical (either direction) or by “recommended”. You can also increase the items per view to up to 72 if you are on a bigger screen and computer with enough power to handle a bigger page.
Bubbling in the eBay Top 100 Trending Deals, the BuyDig eBay Store is offering a new condition USA-authorized Canon 80D PiXMA MIR bundle. You pay $1200 at checkout. You receive the Canon 80D body only, the Pixma PRO 100 printer, its sidekick 50pk 13×19″ photo paper, and a 64GB SD card. Then you submit the mail-in rebate, and if all is well, a few weeks later you receive a $350 prepaid American Express gift card, making this a $850 after $350 MIR promotion.
Please note BuyDig is closed for Passover, so orders will be shipped after they reopen in May 2016. The eBay listing there has a delivery estimate based on that and your delivery address (if you are logged on with your eBay account).
Among the longer non-daily deals at Woot, there is a mini camera sale good until 4/28/16 at 12am central featuring three models:
+ new condition Canon SX530 HS superzoom for $190
+ refurbished yellow Fuji XP80 waterproof for $90
+ refurbished white Fuji Instax Mini 8 instant camera for $50
The limit is three of each camera per customer. Shipping is $5 flat for everything you buy from Woot in April 2016, so if you already bought something, you won’t pay shipping again in April 2016. This may be an experiment to try a monthly/annual membership or a competitive counter to the $5 per month Meh.com MVP plan (they funnily call is VMP rather ironically!).
Among the many NAB Specials at B&H there are some DSLR Video bundles that include accessories help with DSLR Audio/Video, such as mics and such. There are bundles centered around three different DSLRs, the Nikon D750 kits and the Canon 7D Mark II kits and the Canon 5D Mark III kits. Most of the NAB specials expire 4/21.
Also note that B&H offices will be closed starting 7pm ET on 4/21/16 and will reopen 5/1/16 at 10am.
Canon 80D body and Pixma PRO 100 printer and Paper and 32GB Lexar and Extra Batteries and Charger for $1100 after $350 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC)
It’s not just older Canon DSLRs participating in the Canon PIXMA mail-in rebates. It is also the brand new Canon 80D offered in a bundle for $1100 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express Gift Card) at Adorama. You get the Canon 80D body only and the Pixma PRO 100 printer and 50pk SG-201 13×19″ photo paper and two extra batteries and extra charger and a 32GB Lexar SDHC card.
This too is one of their featured Wearhouse Sales.
The Canon Pixma mail-in rebates are also good for some of the Canon RAWsumers. The Canon G9 X goes for $400 on its own at authorized dealers, but if you also want the Pixma PRO 100 printer and don’t object to mail-in rebates (prepaid American Express gift card), you can get it for $350 after a $350 mail-in rebate at Adorama. This includes the standard Canon G9 X kit, the Pixma PRO 100 printer, its trusty SG-201 sidekick (50pk 13×19″ paper) and camera bag and 32GB Sandisk card.
If you just need the Canon Pixma PRO 100 printer and don’t need any of the DSLR bundles that it is typically offered with, there is a limited promotion on the printer alone at B&H Photo. The price you see on the page is $400. The $250 mail-in rebate makes it a $150 after MIR shown on the page. Then you use coupon code BHNAB16 at B&H checkout to drop by the price by making it a $100 after a $250 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express Gift Card). It comes with its trusty sidekick, the Canon SG-201 (50pk of 13×19″ photo paper)… This coupon, like many of the B&H NAB specials expires on 4/21/16…

This runaway sentence is included as well 🙂

For the week of April 17 to 23 in 2016, at Staples brick and mortar stores, they will have a 50% off sale on all the Canon photo paper they carry in the store. No coupon is needed, the prices will be adjusted by their system automatically. Price check these since 50% off may or may not be a good deal depending on the paper. At the same time they will also have a promotion that gets you 25% back in Staples Rewards (if you are a Rewards member), so the combination (assuming photo paper is eligible), could make it a good deal. The promotion is limit two per customer but you can visit the stores multiple times. Keep that wig and fake mustache handy 😉

CORRECTIONS: the blog-post title price was incorrect, it is $2900, not $1000. The downside of reusing the previous post to prevent introducing new typos is that if you forget to edit it properly, it’s wrong… Also corrected my math in the blog-post text below, the price is $2900 after rebate, not $2950 after rebate (because $3250 – $350 = $2900)… Thanks to one of our readers for the email alert with all the error details…

For the risk takers out there, the eBay Deals have an imported lens at a big discount, with just a 30-day seller’s warranty.

It ships from Brooklyn (NY) with over 600 units sold from this listing per the eBay data over there.
White box typically is when they take a lens out of a DSLR kit. Typically Lens + DSLR kits sell for less than buying them separately, and imported gear sell for less than authorized dealer gear. So there’s a double discount on this, the imported discount and the disassembling the kit discount.
