    Do the refurbished camera bodies from Canon Store have zero shutter actuations?

      No, most will have from a few to a few hundred actuations.

    I received the e-mail. Code won’t work. Spoke with Canon, they said that the sale starts on Friday. There is no mention of this in the e-mail.

      There is a code that you should have received which starts with “PRESPOOKY”, we have confirmed that these codes work.

        I didn’t get that one. Guess I’m left in the dark…it’s spooky there!

    I need a 15% code, afraid my lens will go out of stock by then 🙁

      If anyone got a code but is not using it, please do share here to benefit other readers… much appreciated!

    5D3 body is also refurbished? And what’s the return policy on this deal? Do you guys think the quality is still decent even for the ref lens?

    If you have an extra code, please contact me, thanks.

    I wonder how they determined who got the codes. I have bought from them, most recently a month ago. It is a little frustrating.

    No email for me too. Even though I’ve ordered from them before. I’d take one if someone received one they won’t use. Thanks in advance!

    I would sincerely appreciate if someone can paste me their unused and unwanted code at Thanks!

    Canon sent out a follow-up email today titled “We made a boo-boo, here’s the correct code!”

    Hey Gordon,
    Your post is a little confusing. If someone goes to the “Click here…it will take them to the Canon store. Or if they click on the Canon store link at the top, it will take them to the right place. But if you click on the individual links to each lens it takes you to where you need to fill in the info for Basically yoru place.
    So, due to that, people may lose out on getting a lens or camera that goes pretty fast. I think you should label the individual lens groupings to be noted correctly of what that is. Just sayin!

      Thanks for the note. The right link for each individual lens (e.g. the price) links directly to the Canon Direct Store. The left side (lens name) links to our page in case people want to see all the options for purchasing that lens.

    Thanks for the code! Any update on the possible 5DM3 deal? Thanks!

      We were told it would be 15% off on the 5D Mark III with the code … but it looks like they changed it so only the kits are getting a 15% discount. We’re still looking to see what’s up with that.

    Will this promotion be better than the coming thanksgiving or black Fri?

      The chance of you catching a premium lens like the 70-200 II or 100-400 II in-stock at a discount is very low… it’s much worse during Thanksgiving Week with 5x the people trying to get that deal. If it’s in-stock now, I would go for it.
