Since this is a low priced simple prime lens, for some people, this may be a reasonable risk… At authorized Canon dealers, this goes for $105 after a $20 mail-in rebate (eg Adorama, B&H Photo).

Canon SX170 IS red + 1yr Spills/Drops for $90

The Sanity Break is over! A new Deal Parade begins now!

If you love red superzoom digital cameras, and like the idea of the spills and drops additional warranties, Adorama is offering this Canon SX170 IS red superzoom PLUS 1-year New Leaf Spills & Drops warranty for $90 with free shipping. Simply add the camera to the bundle (blue button) and add the bundle to the shopping cart (green button) and you are good to go. No coupons, no rebates!

Canon 50mm f1.8 II (imported/grey) for $98

Included in the camera sub-section of the eBay Deals is the new condition Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens offered for $98 with free shipping by eBay seller RedTag Camera (99.9%). There is no mention of a warranty on the product page and they are not an authorized Canon dealer, so this is likely an imported / grey-market model. As such, it is not eligible for the Canon mail-in rebates. This is a simple prime lens in double figures, so, for some, this may not be an unreasonable risk to take. The blessed by Canon USA model goes for $105 after a $20 mail-in rebate at authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo, Adorama). Not sure how many people would want to go through the hassle of a mail-in rebate for $20, unless they are buying other Canon DSLRs and lenses that are also part of the mail-in rebate promotion. So if you are interested in this lens, the trade-off: imported vs mail-in rebate. We blog, you decide!

If you don’t need the extras, the default Canon EF-S 24mm f2.8 STM lens (without the extras) goes for $150 with free S&H at Adorama.

To get this, go to the individual product page of a camera or lens, click on the small link under “Buy together and save” and manually add the New Leaf warranty to your bundle. This is on top of the standard manufacturer warranty, since most manufacturers don’t cover spills and drops.

If you are not familiar with the Adorama pages, here are a couple of badly annotated screenshot crops to help you locate it quickly…

Click on the small link under “Buy together and save”…

adorama_newleaf_1

Manually add the New Leaf warranty to your bundle. If there are multiple offers, the New Leaf promotion will be under the “Adorama Holiday Gift” tab…

Another trip to the latest eBay Deals find a high-risk high-reward option.

This camera is imported (grey market), so you don’t get warranty from the manufacturer. The seller, Get It Digital, offers their own equivalent one year warranty. High risk because this is an expensive professional DSLR, high reward because it is around $1300-$2100 less than the blessed by Canon USA model which goes for $6800 ($6000 after mail-in rebate) at Amazon and B&H Photo and Adorama and BuyDig. Over 130 imported 1D Xs got sold so far through this listing. Again, please note this is an imported model without a Canon USA warranty.
