I can't find anywhere that it says you have to buy it at this site...I also don't know if it is a valid rebate or not. It would be great if it is....peace y'all
This is the exact same rebate form as the one on jr.com. I've bought quite a few A/V componets from J&R in the past and never had a problem. And they are an authorized Canon reseller according to the person at Canon I spoke to. If this form is legit, it certainly is enticing at $3330 - $250 = $3080 plus free ground shipping.

Hey ....Work Your Best Deal

Ira

I know that TapeWorks Texas Inc and ZotzDigtal will work for your business. Call I bet you can get a better price than B&H. Just got off the phone with TapeWorks Texas Inc , and they beat B&H on a FireStore by a good amount.

Best To You

Rebate?

Wow,
http://www.jr.com/images/pdf/rebates/CAN4_20080331.pdf

it sure looks like a legit rebate form. Would they really risk the legal ramifications of falsifying a rebate form? Somehow I doubt it. Also, this form should be valid anywhere, not just at JR. Just now I tried calling the rebate center that is listed on the form. Customer service is closed for the night; I will try tomorrow and let everyone know what I find out. Itís certainly worth a try. Thanks for the find!

Comparison

As a comparison, here is the previous rebate:
http://downloads.canon.com/cpr/softw...XHA1_Sep13.pdf

The rebate found on the JR website looks to be legit. How strange that there is a valid rebate going on, but its not announced? Hum...

Ok,
Be Well...

I just visited B&H and the rebate IS valid!...as of 02/04/08 at 7:00PM CST, B&H is offering a rebate of $300.00 until 02/29/08. B&H price (after rebate) is $2999.95...I think I've finally found my newest aquisition.

Strange tho..the rebate coupon on the J&R site is different...hmmmmmm.

BTW...this rebate is on the XL-2. The XH-A1 is listed at: $3299.95.

I would consider a purchase, but since they do business here in Texas (where I live), I'd have to pay tax. I wonder if they would still offer a better deal perhaps...?

OF INTEREST....there's a camera shop here in Dallas called, "Competitive Camera," and they are usually pretty good at matching deals when I tell them about B&H offers. But when I contacted them a few weeks ago, his offer was off by at least $150.00. I usually tell him that I would pay him what the advertised price is + shipping/insurance, and he has literally matched every offer I've come to him for. But he wouldn't budge on this last inquiry...hmmmmmmm.

Derek, when I go to the BH Photo website I cant find that 300.00 rebate. Can you provide a link? Where did you find it?

Rebate Cancelled

OK, I just got the phone with Canon. Apparently they were going to have a national 250 dollar rebate on the XH A1, but it was cancelled. That PDF was legit, but it has been cancelled. I guess JR did not pull it from their website?

ZotzDigtal

Derek,

TapeWorks Texas Inc Just might do that, I would call Scott Cantrell. Right now he is working on a deal for me on the Firestore FSC-HD60. My wife said "Yes, if that's would make life better, You can buy one"
Man! I Love Her!!!

or

ZotzDigtal cut me a good deal this afternoon on my A1. They don't charge TAX :). Call them and see if they will beat B&H.


I can't buy (XH-A1) from B&H, the warranty will not cover people from Oklahoma. Something about our great football team or something...HEehheheh
( really, its that Oklahoma wants B&H to collect tax on the warranty sale, some stupid law here on the books. The company providing the service must have a presents or collect taxes in the state and MACK does)

ZotzDigtal uses MACK 4 Year Pro and then I buy a $39 (a year) policy from USAA insurance to cover the A1 from water, dropping, theft, sand, being a dummy, or any thing other than the manufactures defects. It totals (MACK + USAA = $326 for 4 years of coverage. Not bad.

I just bought my XH-A1 a few weeks ago from B&H and I sent in a rebate they had at that time for $250 off between Jan 1st 2008-March 31st 2008. I just found the PDF saved on my computer.

I bought from JR.com without issue and because they waited a day to ship when I asked for overnight, they shipped it free overnight which was nice because the price they quoted me was reduced to reduce the overnight charge. So I ended getting it in 2 days for 3284 and then rebate. Jr was great.

BTW the Canon rebate never stopped, one immediately followed the other.

Texas Tapeworks -I bought the Libec 38, varizoom, Mac Warranty, wide angle lens, filter and they had the best prices on all of it, the libec 38 was almost $100 cheaper than B&H.
Had a slight shipping delay with a few of the products and they apologized profusely. I would certainly buy from Scott again.

I also have USAA, I got an $8000 rider policy for all computers\cameras (cell phones) in the house for $34 a year. I love USAA.

Mike, have you heard back from Canon? I wonder if they will honor the rebate if you already bought a camera before they cancelled the rebate?

I went to their main page, and typed, "XL-2" in the SEARCH window, and clicked the GO button. It brings up a list of items, with an XL at top, and there to the right of the camera it shows the prices:

Price: $3,299.95
Instant Rebate:-$300.00
After Rebate:$2,999.95

Then below the prices, it had a little green box that read," View Rebates."
When I clicked that, it showed the rebate info.
From my POV tho...it looks as if it may be their own rebate, rather than Canon's, but I may be wrong.

Here's the link that was from that page: (although it probably won't be valid too long I guess...as links sometimes expire)

CJ,
Can you provide some info on USAA warranty? Do they have a website? It is available in Texas, etc?
Thanks!
