Or you can use a firmware hack called magic lantern on the t2i to get the same functions..

Has anyone been able to negotiate a lower price than the current $511 for the t2i kit? I was planning on buying the t3 as a christmas gift for my wife as I never really trusted used/refurb items, but now looking at the aewsome price of the t2i kit refurb i'm trying to decide whether or not to just go for it. Although I will probably wait until December and hopefully the prices will drop further unless I can negotiate a cheaper price for the t2i kit.

Negotiate? You're getting 20% off refurb prices by sending them a broken camera that will likely only cost you 10-15 bucks. Don't bite the hand that feeds here, asking them to reduce the price on cameras they will indefinitely sell just makes you look like a fool.

$511 is already very cheap. I'm pretty sure you're not going to be successful negotiating the price down any further.

Plenty of people on this forum (and others) have used refurb/used gear with no issues. You're fine. Plus, you're buying straight from the manufacturer with a 90 day warranty.

Second, I wouldn't negotiate. Like the others said $512 is already a very low price.

My 7D, 50 f/1.4 and 480 EX ii are all refurbs and they're treating me just fine.

Ok cool I won't ask. Ill probably place my order sometime in december though. I still want to wait for the black friday deals plus I would rather not have the camera sit in my closet for two months before christmas with only a 90 day warranty.

My 5D2 and 70-200 2.8L IS II are both refurbs and they are great.

The camera came with only 600 or so clicks on it.

Well, dont forget. Your camera/lens may not have been returns. They may have simply failed the initial quality testing during production and pulled to be brought up to spec. Legally, Canon can't sell units like that as new, so they put them in refurb boxes and away they go.
