Canon Loyalty Program

9 posts in this topic

Just thought I would share this as some may not know about it. Canon offers a discount for current Canon owners. If you have an old or defective Canon and want to purchase a new one. Check with them first at they DO have a program.

Here's an example:

Broken G5 was offered:

SD850IS for $150

G9 for $250

Digital Rebel XT for $275

From what I've read, the offer depends on the camera you own.

Might be something to check out if you are in the market for a new camera.

Great information dtro! My understanding is that your present camera must be un-repairable. You have to contact Canon through a customer service number to see if your broken camera applies. They also have a rebate program going for the 40D and Xti with lens combinations. I will probably have two new bodies by next week with one of them starting with a 5 grin

Thanks, Darrin!

Dan, I'm holding a Canon camera with a 5 in its model number right now! Mmmmmmmm. Sure wish it was mine to keep. gringrin

Anyone with the applicable Canon customer service number could e-mail it to me. I've got an old non-working 20D that may apply.

Me too please. I sent my D.Reb and 24-70 to Canon CS and I am pretty sure the body is shot. That might be a sweet way to hook myself up with a newer body. grin My email is my screen name at yahoo.com

Tom, I forwarded Dan's e-mail to me to you.

Dan, were you able to get a 50D ordered and shipped to you by next week?

It sounds like they are shipping out on Monday from Canon, that was a bit of a surprise. I am buying locally so I may have one by the end of the week. Depends on how many they actually get out of the 40 they ordered. I will know more on Monday, I am number 13 so even if they get half the shipment I should be good. We will see. I may also buy a 40D if my 30D sells this week as well. Lots of things to juggle to get it all to work out.

I've been doing some soul searching on what to do but I can buy 2 cameras plus a bunch more for one more used Mark IIN. The high ISO capability on the 50D is what pushed me over the edge. I would love to not have to strobe this winter! Still the 50D will an indoor camera and backup, you just can't beat the MarkIIN.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
