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.

    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck.

    • Bobby: I am currently a mechanical designer for HVAC/Plumbing/Fire Sprinkler systems... Although i am just using my two year degree and would prefer something more in management since i have a bachelors in operations management. Yes i have started using Indeed, just seems like a lot of "recruiters" post on those sites and not the actual company something about that just bothers me, although i have been going to different company websites to see if they are hiring.    Chasin: Thanks for the response although i get your point of view and I do enjoy fishing/hunting/being outside and all the above. There is limited time for all of that. We are just in the beginning stages of our children.  I noticed that up here the "Vibe" & "Pace" is much slower than the cities.  The big thing is family like some have said 4 hours isnt too far although when your kids only get to see there family 1-3 times a year its hard! That is the main motion for moving back never did we think we would with our first son although once these twins came it was a large decision that we wanted to be able to see family more.  As far as school etc my wife is a teacher and knows what she likes to see in a school district. we currently reside in a  town of 3000 people so we are in a very small school district along with many other things. Do we like it Yes, although things could change!  Ultimately we would raise our kids near family and HOPEFULLY be able to afford a cabin and then retire there at some point... Out kids are young and we are not that old so we have some time for that though!   Del:  Thanks, Unless you have land you will have a crazy neighbor in every neighborhood.
