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.
