New member here so please forgive me if I'm off-base. I've searched here and online and can't seem to find an answer.

I was looking at buying a Canon refurbished DSLR, most likely a 60d or 7d, which I thought were offered at 20% off the refurb price if you have a broken camera to "trade-in," which I do. The prices on many of the refurbs show a "Save 15%" sign - is that just a current sale they have going on which makes the loyalty program rather useless right now?

No... I believe the "save xx%" shown for the rerfurbs at the Canon Online Store is merely comparing the price of the refurb vs their "street" price for the lens brand new, elsewhere on their site.

They do have sales and offer add'l amounts off refurbs occasionally, and/or free shipping offers. It sort of depends whether they have a lot of refurbs in stock or not. Their inventory of refurbs sometimes spikes shortly after a big event where Canon Pro Services was providing support or a big photo show where they used a lot of demo units. This would be largely limited to events and shows in N. America or the U.S., since the store is here. It also occurs when new models roll out, probably when dealers return a lot of out-of-box display models. Recently the 7D refurbs were pretty steeply discounted, which might indicate they are drawing down stock anticipating rolling out a 7D Mark II in the coming months.

CLP is somewhat different... though it seems to tap into the same stock of refurbs. Search here for more info. You have to call them and find out what's available and if your trade-in qualifies... The CLP discounts are usually greater than the refurb sales prices, but are also limited by availability.

No, if it says "Save 15%" it means the camera is on sale for 15% less than their normal price on that refurbished unit. the CLp program gets you 20% IIRC so you would save 20% off the "was" price that is crossed off. Many people who need a camera also take the chance if possible to buy a lens at the same time because the discounts extend to many lenses as well when purchased at the same time. be aware that you will pay sales tax and shipping. Depending on the camera you are looking to buy, also watch adorama or B&H as they also have sold refurbished Canon stuff and you normally won't have tax or shipping.

Appreciate the responses. I had asked about either the 50mm 1.8 or 15-85 IS and neither of which were on the discount list unfortunately. I am not as enamored with the CLP prices as they currently stand so I may just wait until the 60d-successor announcement.

What "list" were you looking at? Here is the current list: http://shop.usa.canon.​com …wAll_10051_1005​1_-1_22751 (external link)
Which shows that both of your lenses are indeed included in the sale. The Refurbished EF-S 15-85mm regularly sells for $640 and is now on sale at a 15% discount for $544: http://shop.usa.canon.​com …uct_10051_10051​_269486_-1 (external link)
The refurbished EF 50mm f/1.8 normally sells for $101 but is now on sale at 30% discount for $70.55, however they are showing it as currently out of stock. http://shop.usa.canon.​com …uct_10051_10051​_269494_-1 (external link)

I would recommend signing up for a notification on http://www.canonpricew​atch.com/ (external link) and they will send you an e-mail when the lens is back in stock.


Canon EOS 7D | EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM | EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS |

Correct, they are both on sale but were not part of the CLP program. The link posted above has the list of lenses that are part of that program. Either way, 15 or 20% off the lenses is a great deal and I may go ahead and take advantage while I decide on a body. I'm also trying to heed the advice of glass > body that so many here preach.

Again, appreciate everyone's responses.
