The last few months, we’ve had some fantastic lens deals. This has been the best Canon holiday deal season since we started watching prices in 2007. Unfortunately, this big lens sale is all coming to an end in a little over a week: the last day for the Canon mail-in rebates is January 4th, 2014.
Once the mail-in rebate is finished, we expect to see the net prices to go up. Lens prices are currently at their lowest levels in years. Many stores are also now offering free expedited (2-day, or overnight) shipping with many lens purchases.
You can find many double dip deals at B&H, Amazon, or Adorama, where the store has instant-discounted by the amount of rebate or more, effectively doubling it. Note, you need to add to cart and proceed to checkout to enable the deal at most stores. You can also see a summary of our favorite double-dip deals above.
