Holiday Deals 2014 — Recap of Last Minute Deals


This post is a recap of all the major Holiday deals still available, as of Wednesday, December 17th! Some can still get to you with free shipping before Christmas, but not for much longer!

5D Mark III


7D Mark II



Canon Refurbished Store Restocked — 15%-Off Lenses


The Canon Direct Store sale on refurbished lenses just restocked, about 30 minutes ago. They’re offering 15% off. See the refurbished stock tracker for all items still in stock.

It looks like many of the desirable lenses were available, but sold out within minutes! Browse the used item feed to see what sort of items were re-stocked, their price, and how quickly they sold out. This was probably the last major restock for this sale, which ends on December 20th.

If this post is the first time you’re hearing about the restock — well, you’re doing something wrong! You need to sign up for e-mail notification on a specific item, readers who did were notified within minutes when the restock happened at 12:55 PM ET. We put together a new notification management page where you can see all your active notifications (and manage them from one convenient page). It’s important to set notifications on specific items as these e-mails happen automatically when the restock happens.

If you did this and you snagged something in this incredible sale, leave a bragging comment below!

Most Popular Street Prices: 24-70 II $1699 AR, 70-200 II $1849 AR


Thanks to the recent unexpected price drop, our most popular street prices at the moment are the:

Both are brand new, after the Canon $150 mail-in rebate, from Canon USA authorized dealers with a full Canon USA warranty. Guaranteed delivery before Christmas with free shipping.

These are the lowest street prices we’ve ever had for these lenses, and the lowest price we’ve seen since the sales in December 2013. These prices are bringing out a lot of first-time street price users (and the usual skepticism)! For their benefit here’s a quick recap of what street price is all about:

In April of 2014, Canon began strictly enforcing their Minimum Advertised Price policy which forbids retailers from advertising items for sale below a certain mandated price. It doesn’t prevent stores from having deals, it just prevents them from telling you about it. The “street price” is a price we know some retailers are willing to sell at. You can fill out the contact form on a product’s page to get in contact with us, and we can help you obtain this price, from a Canon authorized dealer with full Canon USA warranty. All items are brand new, eligible for mail-in rebates, come from reputable retailers with return policies, free shipping, and no tax to most states. Street price orders generally ship out the same or next day.
