Zoom-zoom! The Canon SX400 IS superzoom (30x optical) is on sale for a limited time for $129 with free shipping at B&H Photo. As the “IS” in the model name suggests, this has a CCD sensor (vs “HS” which designates a CMOS sensor). Offer ends by 12/19/15 at 11:59pm ET.

For a limited time, B&H Photo is offering 10% promotional rewards with the purchase of the Canon EOS 5DS R Body Only at its regular authorized dealer price of $3600. That’s $360 in promotional rewards to be used in future purchases… If you prefer tangible goods instead of promotional rewards, Adorama bundles it with the Audio-Technica AT8024 Stereo/Mono Camera-Mount Microphone ($250 on its own) and the Corel Software Bundle (includes AfterShot Pro 2 and PSP X7)…
The Canon-Pixma-MIR bundles are not just available for the Canon DSLRs. Some of the more advanced Powershots are also eligible. For example, the Canon G7X standard kit goes for $600 at various authorized Canon dealers at the moment. But if you want a printer as well and do not object to mail-in rebates and prepaid AMEX gift cards, you can get the Canon G7 X with the Pixma Pro 100 printer and 50pk 13×19″ photo paper and 32GB SDHC and camera bag for $500 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card) at Adorama.

Alternately, if you prefer accessories instead of promotional rewards, Adorama has a bundle with various lens-y accessories along with the Corel Creativity software bundle (including AfterShot Pro 2 and Paintshop Pro X7).
In addition to that, Adorama has another listing with the same price but 10% promotional rewards (=$80~). There is an “RB” in the product code and “RW” in the item description, so I’m not sure what this means. I am not sure if RB is short for refurbished? I don’t know what “RW” is.
B&H Photo is offering for a limited time 10% promotional rewards (= 10% of the purchase price) on select Canon and Nikon DSLRs and Lenses. A total of 46 options are available. The items are intermixed, so check both pages or filter them by Canon or Nikon using the “Narrow Results” section on the left-hand-side of their website over there.

We have a quarter of Canon-Pixma mail-in rebate promotions. We start with the Canon G16 compact with RAW, bundled with the Pixma Pro 100 printer and 50pk 13×19″ photo paper and Lowepro case for $250 after a $350 mail-in rebate at Adorama.
F you are cool with mail-in rebates, Adorama has a Canon D-Rebel T5i bundle.

Alternately, for $600 after $350 MIR, you can get the T5i with 18-135mm IS STM with the Pixma Pro 100 and photo paper (but no bag or SD card). So with this kit, you pay $200 more and get the 18-135 instead of the 18-55 lens, and skip the bag and SD.

You pay $750 at checkout, receive items, submit mail-in rebate, and a few weeks later you receive a $350 prepaid American Express Gift Card by mail.
