Yeup, Im in the US - I've seen that and debating about the refurbished option.
I have never purchased a refurbished camera and I guess Im on the fence to either purchase the new or refurbished for a difference of about $250

Well, the risk is less now... Refurbs have a full one year warranty just like a new camera. My first DSLR was a 60D refurb. It came with a shutter count of 44 and looked brand new.

Since then, though... I bought my 70D and 7D2 new.

The 70D is near the end of its production life, at least, based on the recent history.

Take a look at this... It might help: https://en.wikipedia.o​rg …Canon_EOS_digit​al_cameras (external link)

I bought my 70D off the refurb site with the 18-135mm it had 34 clicks on the shutter. I'd much rather buy a refurb than brand new. all the Canon products I currently have I bought from their refurb site and couldn't be happier with them. I paid 799 for the kit which is what they currently have it listed at but currently out of stock. Far better deal than the 1,199 price for a new one, with the $400 savings that a lot of other goodies you can pick up. with the savings I had I got the 55-250, 24mm, 40mm, and the 270 flash and only paid a little more than what I would of if I had bought the new and would of maybe had the money for one of the pancake lenses.

No difference other than them giving you a bigger discount to buy the one with the kit lens. I had the 18-55 STM when I had my old T3 it was a great lens considering it's a cheap kit lens.

Go the refurb if you are saving money. I bought the 60D about 2-1/2 years back. 40 something clicks on the shutter and unable to tell from new except for the plain white box it came in. Back then there was a Canon Loyalty Program that got you an additional discount when you "traded" in a Canon camera, even one that was non-functioning or a 35mm vintage P&S.
