When I first asked the lady on the phone if I was going to get the 20% discount off that price, she said "No, you have to chose either the bundle or the CLP price". So I decided with just sticking with the CLP price because it is $320.

But as she was processing my order, it was giving her trouble so she spoke with her supervisor and I ended up getting the $50 off the original CLP price of $320 (Camera cost me $270) and it comes with all the extra accessories!

Just thought I'd let you guys know about this deal, but I doubt it's permanent because it was only in correlation to the refurb Canon XS being on sale on their website.

In conclusion, I'm really excited that I finally get to have a DSLR for a really appeasing price. I can't wait 'till it arrives on Wednesday!
Now that is a great deal!

The "refurbished" Rebel gadget bag is $80 (0_0 does anyone know why it costs this much, or this th e norm with gadget bags, and if so what's so special about it'?).
And the Rebel XS tutorial DVD is normally worth $40 (again this seems really expensive, to me).
1. Not sure about the card brand, but hey, if it works, it works. I'd rather get 2x4GB for JPEG or 2x8GB for RAW myself, but that's just me. Still, free is free.

2. If you're going off of Canon's MSRP, it probably sells for less than it says on Canon's site. If it's the typical Canon bag I'm thinking of right now, I usually see it go for $15-$20 used. Again though, free is free.

3. Worth a watch if you're new to DSLRs, but I agree, price is inflated. And hey, afterwards, free coaster!

I ordered my 4th Canon, a 60D body through the CLP today. They didn't have the kit option in stock. Everything went very quick and smooth. I'll be sending in my first PowerShot, an A70.

Yeah, CLP is some pretty sweet business. Canon actually just had a 15% off sale on refurbs, etc, dropping the price of the 5Dii to $1700 ($1806.25 + ~12 shipping, sick, sad I missed). Can't wait till March when (hypothetically) 5Diii is announced and (hopefully) the 5Dii goes back on the block. That would be ONE HELL of a birthday present from Canon

Yep, they added the 60D a month after I bought mine brand new (luckily I got it on the last day of a decent rebate) but that's how it is.

Someone's interested in my 5Dc, so when I purchase that CES will have breaking news that the 5Diii will be released next month, after I bought my 5Dii, which will invariably go back on the CLP the moment I purchase it at retail.

It is true. Mine will be here tomorrow 1/5. Ordered on Monday the 2nd and they said it was just added that day. Body only, mine was $511.99 + tax. I called in to inquire about my TXi that took a poop. After being given the option of repair for $200 (minimum) or CLP, I asked to talk to the CLP people. After telling the first lady I was looking for a T3i, she said great, it was just added today. Since I had already been researching the T3i's, I called the wife to lay out my case. Got the ok. Called back and had to walk the second lady thru it's availability and then price.

Ordered a pretec 64GB sdxc card from NewEgg for $80 shipped.

Ordered a parts camera from ebay for $8.50 shipped, thanks to a previous posters tip.

I hope the camera is a good one. I've been researching how to check shutter count on it with Windows OS and keep reading to give it a shot but probably not possible. So if anyone has successfully done it on a t1i to t3i, please post up what program you used (I have read it is possible with Linux, but I do not have Linux or access to any other OS besides WindowsXP)

T3i is a great camera from what I've seen. I started out with a T1i and jumped to a 60D back in March, but my wife's cousin's husband shoots a T3i and I got to play with one over New Years quite a bit. I'm actually kind of shocked with some of the differences (both in controls and ergonomics) between the T1i and the T3i. Less intuitive since I've gotten used to the xxD/xD formats of cameras (going from the 60D to the 5D/7D combo).

Green box mode is weird on the T3i, that's about the only thing I'd say. I think they call it 'intelligent auto'. Didn't make a lick of sense to me. I did find it funny when I natively took a few pics and had histogram and other info on the LCD that when I gave the camera back to my wife's cousin, she was like 'uh, what's all this' and gave it back to me confused. I really need to teach them how to get the most out of what they have in their hands...

This camera came in brand new factory condition. No wipe down lint bits/dust/finger smudges, no slight scrapes.. just perfect. Going from the TXi (from the Elan II), operating this will have a slight learning curve.
