This seems to be Canon's new way of being "fair" on refurbished sales, rather than have a massive feeding frenzy at their sale start time (which is regularly Sunday at midnight ET).

The last few sales we saw not much stock at the original sale launch, but stock magically showed up in the middle of the week -- Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon, if I recall correctly. About 5-30 of most of the popular lenses, and they would sell out within an hour.

In the October sale they mailed out coupon codes early on Sunday morning, with a 10% code, a 15% code, and a 20% code. I thought that was a very clever thing to do, as by the time the 20% code was widely known most of the great stuff was already bought at 10%-off.

So, I picked off the email about the sale as I was getting ready for bed. I played follow the link, and behold--there were four 135L lenses in stock. I sat on the Canon site and put it in my cart, added the hood . . . and just the hood is in my cart. I try again like five times and the same thing.

The sixth time, the 135L is mysteriously gone from the refurb selections.

What in the world is going on over there, and why don't they want to sell me a 135L?

I wanted it too, but it was not showing up on the lens list and I could not add it to my cart from my wish list. You got it to show up in your cart?

I did get an order in for the 70-200 2.8 is II as the consolation prize.

If I received an email about my order, what's the chance I will get it?

Does the canon loyalty program discount stack with this 20% discount?

Crap, neither the 85f1.8 or 600ex is in stock. Both at a great price.
