I didn't see that they were for sale, and they only send one or two depending on your membership. Does Canon sale them?

Not that I have ever seen. They only give them to CPS members. But they are for sale in the classifieds section pretty often.

It's most likely people getting them from the CPS program and not wanting to use them so they sell them off.

You don't buy them--you sign up for Gold or Platinum membership to get them.

Yea I believe the strap is just a Crumpler "Industry Disgrace" in red with CPS on it.

Yea, and some people have said its an Op/Tech Pro Loop. Either way its def not worth the amount of money people get for it and an Op/Tech Pro Loop Strap for ~$20 is way better IMO.

the CPS strap is made by OP/Tech, even has their logo on the plastic connectors.

same strap you can get for $20 as Ben mentioned, just without the "Canon CPS" logo on it.

Speaking of CPS (external link), the free membership is worth it. Whether you want to pay $100 for the Gold membership and the strap depends on how much you might use the services. But two free lens or body services on out of warranty equipment make it a no brainer, given how expensive a simple cleaning and adjustment can be.

and it's compatible with the OP/Tech sling adapter, which I prefer over the Black rapids and Sunsniper straps since it keeps the camera connected by two points instead of the tripod socket.

Nice, yea they do look nice, but not worth the extra money for a Canon logo. Personally this is the only logo Id prefer to sport:
