Find Better Prices with New CanonPriceWatch “Street Price” Feature

Even with the new mail-in rebates it looks like stores are strictly sticking to MAP prices — which means, no advertised deals to be had. At the time MAP was introduced, we promised to “find ways to share the current Canon price trends”.

Today, we’re proud to launch a beta of the new CanonPriceWatch “Street Price” feature.

Using our connections in the Canon user & dealer community, we’re now able to estimate the price at which you could buy the item brand new from an authorized dealer with Canon USA Warranty. We’ve launched a beta on some of the most popular items:

On “Street Price” enabled items you’ll see a box like the below. If you are seriously considering a purchase, you can click the link in the box to contact us for assistance in obtaining that price.

(The link below is just a demo — go to the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM II page to use the real thing.)


We estimate a street price of $2000 – $2030 After Rebate on this item from an authorized dealer with full Canon USA Warranty and free shipping.

Fill out this form to get in touch with CPW for assistance in obtaining this price.

We’ll continue to improve and refine our street price as we get feedback from users and dealers alike. Feel free to contact us via the contact form with your experiences.

    Sounds like a good idea. I’ll be waiting for the 70D street price feature.
