Updated the First Post to add the 5 states without sales tax.

I would think if you live in one of the five states without sales tax you would already know it, but just in case...

i would hope so.... :D

I just got my 7D from CLP - it looks brand new, except the battery came dead :(

A 7D should be arriving here from this last batch today or tomorrow. Having owned several "refurbished" cameras I'd personally rather a refurb than new, unless the price is close. Regarding refurb another benefit is extended warranties such as Mack fully cover "refurbished" bodies & lenses so you have more options there and better resale value.

I think people underestimate the Mack which is transferrable versus the manufacturer warranty which isn't.

There is a one-time transfer fee of $20 each time you transfer ownership

So, I got my 7D and now my buddy wants one. What's the best way to keep tabs on stock for the Loyalty Program?

A representative told me that they show on Canon's Refurbished Cameras website at the same instant they show up in the CLP rep's computer. Another representative told my friend that it's better to call by phone frequently.

Anyone know how it actually works?


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

I typed obviously used so there would be no question with the next owner buying something "new" and not having it be so.

Helen likes to chime in on various fora and can do so here for all to see. PM doesn't help others.

Are you on the payroll too?

Pointless, as she already answered this exact question in another thread. I can only repeat this so many times. The question and answer is already here, in print. I'll repeat it again--customer returns are sent back to Canon for refurbishment. That's a general umbrella--doesn't matter if it was returned because a defect was detected, or the customer simply didn't like it. If you need to verify the information that badly, PM her and be done with it.

I'm sure she's happy to answer your question, but that's kind of weak. You can't expect her to read every single thread every day.

Here's the exact answer she provided. The context was regarding refurbished returns, but the rules apply to new customer returns as well:

How's the reliability of refurbished cameras? I'm thinking about picking up a refurbished S95.

Serious? *jawdrop* How do those states even continue to function?

Oregon has a state income tax.

Keep tabs on the refurb website with something like Follow That Page. I was told by 4 customer service reps that that's the page to watch to see their inventory as it's update near real time.

Is that how you discovered availability, as opposed to calling every so often.

Can you count on it.


Perhaps a better question is, did you call or get page update when you purchased.
