Deals Expiring: Free Grip (5D IV, 6D II), CarePAK, Holiday Rebates




Happy New Year! Unfortunately, the new year also signals the end of the Canon holiday deal season. All of the current promotions on the lenses, as well as the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS 6D Mark II are set to expire on the same day, Saturday January 5th. Three major promotions are going away:

  1. The free Canon battery grip promotion is ending.
  2. The free 13-month CarePAK PLUS promotion is ending.
  3. The holiday instant rebates on lenses will be reduced, which will be an effective price increase on most lenses.

Please take advantage of our street prices (some options are eligible for the free promotions above) before it’s too late. Please ensure street price orders are entered before Friday January 4th.



Street Prices on Lenses Expected to Go Up at End of Week




As previously mentioned, Canon instant rebate program in the USA ended last week with no renewal. We had street prices available at the “old prices”, but we now expect those prices to expire at the end of the week. We expect that prices will temporarily go up for a short time, before coming back down in the build-up to Black Friday sales.

Street prices still available (this week only):
