Canon D-Rebel T5i Two-Lens Kits with Pixma PRO 100 and Extras for $430 (18-55, 75-300) or $530 (18-135, 75-300) after $350 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC)

The Canon 18-135mm is more versatile as a beginner lens than the 18-55mm and in this case the versatility costs $100 more, which for many, it may be well worth the 20 extra PSLs 🙂 But as always, we blog, you decide!

Adorama is having another round of Canon Pixma AMEX mail-in rebate bundles, good until Sunday night (or earlier if sold out, or later if extended).

The bundles center on the Canon D-Rebel T5i with two lenses, the Pixma PRO 100 printer, its 50pk 13×19″ photo paper sidekick, and a Canon shoulder bag. Both options get the 75-300mm f4-5.6 III non-USM lens. The difference between the two kits is that one comes with the 18-55mm IS STM lens, while the other kit for $100 more gets the 18-135mm IS STM lens.

Good lord this is a long winded post, so here are the links before I continue for another ten paragraphs:

+ D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 & 75-300 & Pixma PRO 100 printer + 50pk 13×19″ + Bag for $430 after $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card)

Internets Price-Match Canon D-Rebel T6i w/18-55 and 55-250 for $800

Amid this chaos, we continue to price-check the BF ads in the Black Friday Ads Digest post, the latest one to get matched by the internets is the Canon D-Rebel T6i two-lens kit with the 18-55 and 55-250 lenses for $800. The online match is at B&H Photo with 2% rewards, 32GB Sandisk, Canon bag, for $800 with free expedited shipping. As of the time of writing, this kit is not available at Amazon or Adorama (or I couldn’t find it).

Adorama defeats the Black Friday Ads for the Canon D-Rebel T6 with free Canon Printer and Corel Software and more (T6 w/18-55 and 75-300 for $450)

The Canon D-Rebel T6 two-lens kit (18-55, 75-300) for $450 is perhaps the most advertised of DSLRs at the Black Friday Ads, offered at least at Office Depot/MAX and BJ’s Wholesale and HH Gregg and Target and Walmart and Best Buy.

Now this offer has been handily defeated by Adorama offering the following additional free accessories to the two-lens kit: Canon Pixma MX922 wireless AiO printer, and Corel software bundle (including PSP X8 and AfterShot PRO 2), extra 3rd-party battery, 58mm UV filter, 16GB SD card, and the obligatory cleaning kit.

B&H Photo offers 2% rewards ($9 in future purchases there) and 16GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC and Sunpak 58mm Filter Kit, while Amazon itself includes a 32GB Lexar Professional and a Wasabi charger with two extra Wasabi batteries [this is NOT edible Wasabi].

(SOLD OUT) Friday: Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 and 75-300 for $399 with Meh warranty

As of 8:21pm ET recheck, this sold out…

The Meh deal of the day for Black Friday is usurping the official Black Friday Ads by offering the Canon D-Rebel T6 two-lens kit (18-55, 75-300) for $50 less. They can do this because they are not authorized Canon dealers, so their kit comes with a 1-year warranty from Meh, not Canon USA.

The Canon USA blessed kit goes for $450 by various sellers that offer a variety of free accessories.

The way Meh explains the whole MAP thing is very refreshing:
