You AAFES people get ALL the best deals.

Yea...like 18 month deployments and other cool stuff like that.

But for real, I love my job and I'm proud to do it. It makes me feel appreciated when places offer a military discount.

Consider it an extended all-expenses-paid vacation? :p Deal-wise, those 25% off coupons really can't be beat.

FWIW I had to call Canon 3 times, only then did I find someone willing to deal with my demand for a discount on a refurb model. :)

So you were able to get a discount on the 5D2? How much? :D

I got 5% off, others have since said they were able to sneak 10% off! I told them I could get 5% off online but I would rather deal with them direct so they gave it to me. The 10% off was because they told the rep that they had only ever owned Canon bodies. I tried that before I got my 5% to no avail.

Seems that it REALLY depends on the rep that you get on the phone really.

I must have missed that post. Do you know who and how? I have been trying to hold out for the 5D3 however I might have to get a refurbed 5D2 for 15% off.

It was on the SlickDeals thread.. I think he ordered a 5Dc or a 7D and then decided to return it. He then asked the rep if he could keep his CLP discount and apply it to a 5D2. She told him it wasn't offered anymore, but agreed to give him 15% anyway

I can make up a story like that too--but in my story, they give me a 95% discount. Don't believe everything you read on slickdeals--lots and lots of trolls. 10% is believable, 15% not so much.

Lol, the point of the story is to keep asking different reps and be persistent. Of course not everyone is going to get 5%, 10% or even 15% off, but it couldn't hurt to try.
