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.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
