Canon is offering a steep discount on one of its high-end photo printers. For a limited time, you can pick up the PIXMA PRO-100—formerly $380, and originally $500 MSRP—for just $130 after a mail-in rebate. This price simply can’t be beat.
We rarely cover deals here at PetaPixel. Really amazing deals are often mistakes—remember those $200 Sony a7Rs?—and many other so-called deals are just cyclical price drops. In other words: nothing special.
This Canon printer deal is an exception.
From now until the end of May, Canon is offering $250 off their PIXMA PRO-100 photo printer, bringing the price down to a measly $130. That’s closer to what you would normally pay to buy a standard all-in-one, except now you’re getting a printer that can fire off 13 x 19-inch prints at up to 4800 x 2400 dpi resolution using not two, not three, not even four, but eight ink cartridges, three of which are for monochrome printing.
The PRO-100 isn’t on par with Canon’s ultra-high end PRO-1000, but compared to what most of us are printing with at home (if you are at all), it’s a huge step up… and now you can have it for just $130.
On the other hand, if you are interested in the PRO-1000, the $1,300 printer is also part of this promotion; Canon is offering a $300 mail-in rebate that brings the price down to a more reasonable $1,000. That’s still a far way off from the $130 that caught our eye, but you’re also getting a lot more printer.
