Crissy told me about this a couple years ago and I was telling someone else about it just now in an email....
It's not mentioned anywhere on their webpage, but Canon has a loyalty program.
They will accept any junk Canon camera (film or digi) as a trade in and give you 20% off a currently available refurb camera.
(Trade-ins are crushed and not resold)
Call: (866)-443-8002, Pretty sure it is option number 2.
But they do require you send them a junker as part of the deal.... they will want the serial number of the junker while you're on the phone.
If you "forget" to follow through and send your junker in, they will come back and charge your card for the extra 20%
It's a popular program among the Canon crowd.
Here are the current refurb offerings: http://shop.usa.canon.com/webapp/wcs...10051_-1_29252
Just a heads up and not anykind of product endorsement....
But if you're looking for a Canon DSLR on the cheap.
