I can't find this rebate on the Canon site, is this specific to ordering the camera from Texas Tape Works only? Thanks.

Here is the XHA1 rebate form!


Kipjaz Savoie March 13th, 2007 08:08 AM

Ah that's what I was looking for - thanks very much Chuck!!

Ben Crosbie March 13th, 2007 08:44 AM

Dang! I bought my camera in February, so I just missed this. Anyone know if there is still a way to get the rebate?

Jason Lowe March 13th, 2007 09:10 AM

I suppose a price drop in conjunction with the rebate is too much to hope for, but this rebate makes this really tempting.

William Boehm March 13th, 2007 12:58 PM

xh a1 rebate
contact the company you bought it from and have them post date a new invoice.

Ben Crosbie March 13th, 2007 02:43 PM

Would a company really do that? Either way, it may be more complicated than that, because I just had to send in my camera for repairs to the canon service center, and I had to give them the date of purchase. I would imagine this could prevent me from getting the rebate.

Don Palomaki March 13th, 2007 05:48 PM

Rebate effective period starts in a couple days, so Canon may not post it until the start date, no reason for them to delay what would otherwise be a no-rebate sales.

Texas Tape Works or B&H?
So Im going to order the XHA1 today or tomorrow morning. The only question is do I order from B&H or Texas Tape Works?

B&H has a stellar reputation with thousands of recommendations on resellerratings.com as well as excellent marks from the DVX forum.

Texas Tape Works is endorsed by Chris on this forum. Theyre offering the camera for the same price as B&H (for $100 extra, you can get a CamRade CB single 1 cambag). Id like to support a company that supports this forum, but Texas Tape has only 8 (albeit excellent) reviews on Resellers, none newer than last year.

Im in Boston so geographic location is not that much of an issue.

Which place would you recommend?

(And if I've placed this message in the wrong thread, please feel free to move.)

Glen Elliott March 15th, 2007 11:56 AM

Thanks Chris- now I want to buy a second A1!

Paulo Teixeira March 15th, 2007 04:56 PM

The 3500 dollar price tag at B&H was already very low and now you get a 250 rebate from Canon for a final price of around 3250. Is Canon loosing their mind? I think Sony have to lower the price of the V1u because of this. Canon is really respecting their costumers with this promotion.

Unfortunately, corporate policy from Canon Inc. forbids their participation on message boards -- something I have been lobbying for a very long time to get them to change. It must be understood that Canon USA and Canon Europa are two separate companies, each with their own particular promotions, specials and similar programs. Here's hoping that the EU & UK divisions will step up to the plate with an equivalent rebate.
