Expiring 1/31/15: Canon, Nikon and Sony Rebates & Savings

The various mail-in rebates (MIR) and instant savings of Canon (see PDF MIR form) and Nikon (instant savings, not MIR) and Sony (instant savings, not MIR) expire on 1/31/15. You can find them all at the aforelinked Adorama pages. I don’t know what happens after 1/31/15. Sometimes they get extended, sometimes they change, sometimes they take a break and return later.

These offers are also available at B&H Photo with a 1/31/15 expiration: Canon DSLRs and Lenses along with Nikon DSLR gear and Sony gear.
