So I call the CLP on a Powershot I have that's broken. After 20 minutes of conversation, they tell me that they have NO power shot models for the CLP. None. But she could maybe get me an SD1200IS for $90 (not to bad a price I guess) but it's NOT in stock just like all the other Power Shots. Or she could get me an SD940IS refurb for $179 which is about $50 above Adorama refurb prices on that same model. I couldn't believe what I was hearing but they were stone cold serious.

Moral of the story, keep calling.

the main point of CLP is to get you OUT of the powershot and into a dslr.

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

Wow, you took my message to heart Tom. I really meant that one must keep trying with the CLP program since it really matters who your get on the line. I hope I didnt send you into a spiral.
