Any chance there will be sales or rebates on Canon cameras soon?

I am going to be getting a new camera body for my birthday in a few weeks, and was wondering if there was a typical time that they offer rebates or anything. I am going to be upgrading from my rebel to the 60d if that information is helpful.

I just don't want to get a new body and then a month later learn I could have saved a few bucks that I could apply towards a macro lens!

Thanks!

This is the rebate period. Not all models of bodies or all lenses are eligible for rebates. Shop reputable authorized dealers.
And don't wait to long. Not sure exactly when the rebates end but if memory serves it will be by Feb 1 if not earlier.

If shopping online some reputable dealers are:
b&hphotovideo.com
adorama.com
calumet.com
keh.com
mpex.com

Also check Amazon.com. They are usually very competitive with their pricing.

I think Volt may have a typo in her post. Kes.com is not a camera equipment site.

Thanks. You are right. It should have been keh.com. I've fixed it.

I was going to order from Amazon, they have the best price, does anyone know when the rebate period ends? I was going to hold off until closer to my actual birthday, but maybe I should order now?
Thanks for your help!!!

I appreciate the links, one of them takes you to the Kraft website, which has a delicious looking recipe for chocolate spiced cheesecake!!

Tonight apparently isn't my night for links. If you know what you want I'd get it ordered. Lots of inventory will move with the rebates in place and I don't think they honor it as a rain check. They normally end Feb 1 or there abouts I think.

I want to thank you for asking this question. I was wondering the same thing myself !

I am also eyeing the 60D. I have the Rebel XT and the 30D, but I am definately feeling like it is time for an upgrade.

My daughter can always learn with and use the XT. She's only 9, but loves taking pictures. It may be time for her to learn with a better camera than a P&S. And the 30D can always serve as a backup.

Ahh, what we'll do to justify the purchase of new equipment. LOL




HHCC always welcome & appreciated !!
