Canon started a new special mail-in rebate promotion: you can receive an AMEX reward card by mail when you purchase two different eligible Canon EF lenses (or an eligible EOS camera and EF lens combination). These rebates run from March 25th through July 9th. The AMEX card can be used as cash anywhere AMEX is accepted, or it can be refunded to a check by calling AMEX.
In addition, currently there is an amazing instant rebate (up to $200 off on Canon lenses) which will expire on April 2nd. So, you can take advantage of both active Canon rebate promotions from March 25th through April 2nd. If you are looking to build your kit, this is a great opportunity to save some cash.
To qualify for this promotion, you must purchase at least two (2) different eligible new Canon EF lenses OR an eligible new Canon EOS Camera (body only or lens kit) PLUS one (1) eligible new Canon EF lens. (A lens included in a camera lens kit does not qualify as an eligible EF lens under this promotion. Multiple purchases of a single lens do not qualify for this promotion.) All product purchases must be included on the same sales receipt. You can review the rebate instructions here for a very lengthy list of all items in this program.
