Alright folks, we don’t often post about deals but this is a great one and it’s only available through midnight tonight (Eastern Standard Time). If you’re in the US and you’re okay with buying some refurbished Canon gear instead of brand new, today only, you can get $20 off a purchase of $100 or more, $50 off of $250 or more and $125 off $500 or more.
Obviously the best deal is at the $500 or more level, where the discount (if you manage to make your cart worth exactly $500) is 25%, but any of these is a great opportunity to snag some gear for cheaper.
As far as photo gear is concerned, you’ve got 22 SLRs, 57 compacts, 26 lenses and 4 speedlights to choose from, and as long as the total in your cart exceeds $500 before the discount, they’ll take $125 off the total. Reddit user djhughman posted about the deal in r/photography, and he managed to get himself a refurbished 60D (body only) for $425 before they ran out.
If you’re just starting out and have a body you’re happy with, we would use this opportunity to buy some glass and add to your collection. Package a 40mm f/2.8 Pancake and a 100mm f/2.8 Macro together and take $125 off the total. Or buy yourself a 50mm f/1.4 and $270 after the discount.
These are just a couple of combos we came up with off the top of our heads just taking a quick look at the list, the options go on and on. Beginners can pick up a T3i, pair it with a nifty fifty, and get the whole package for under $376!
So if you live in the US and you’re looking to grab some Canon gear on the cheap, whether it’s for yourself or as a gift for someone on your list, we suggest you jump on this one. Just make sure you place your order before midnight Eastern time.
