You can rationalize any behavior you want. That's what rationalization is! Call Canon and tell them that you have bought 3 of the same item and you're submitting 3 separate rebates from different addresses but they're all to be paid to the same person. If you're right then they'll say OK. I bet not one person will do that because you know what your answer will be.

Andrew did email me after my post here. Either he's following this thread or jjaenagle (thank you) contacted him. Either way my bid is being adjusted to a very reasonable amount and Andrew thinks it will get accepted later today. If it does I'll be very pleased with what my net on the lens will be after the coupon and rebate :)

Yes, everyone wants full retail for the lens and advertises that it's $100 off after rebate, like it's coming from them! Andrew thinks he can get me $149 off retail, plus his welcome50, and the $100 mail in rebate. Final price $1200 :) Now I need to sell the Canon lens I just bought.

Interestingly, rationalization works both ways, ie. to fill in your own views of intent and opinion of stated guidelines and holding others accountable to those views. In the end, your view or mine don't matter, the exact rules and regulations matter. ;)

Canon's rules are clear, rebates are per address per rebate period, and those should be observed. If I needed to use the rebate twice, I would have no issue in calling Canon and letting them know my wife would like a camera upgrade, as would I, for our respective businesses, and they would allow me to buy those items under those business addresses. If their intent was one per person, they could very well add that to the rebate rules, like many other places do.

For example, here is a contact lens rebate program. This company's expectations and intent are quite clear. We would have no room for rationalization, from either perspective.

Please note: Rebate submissions must be postmarked within 60 days of lens purchase. Contact lenses must be purchased within 90 days of your eye exam, and all receipts must be from the same eye care practitioner who prescribed your contacts, or from a location affiliated with that practitioner. One rebate per person per twelve (12) month period and five rebates per address per twelve (12) month period. Monthly maintenance fee for rebate prepaid gift card waived for first 6 months after issuance. If a check is issued, it will expire and be null and void if not cashed within 60 days of issue.

Greg, im glad that you are getting it for what you want... hopefully.

As far as asking canon about the lenses. I called them and asked them about the rebate. As long as i had it sent to 3 different addresses on the form, it will be ok.

To verify this, i sent them an email if one person buying the same lenses is a violation of the rebate policy and also how they measure household, whether it is by shipping/ billing address, or by the address that is put on the form.

i will let you guys know what they say

Good job! Perfect way to handle this, than to assume. I have already done this as well, albeit quite some time ago, and unless they have changed their intent, I already know the answer.

That's integrity! Hopefully I'm wrong.

or very stupid... haha.

really, i know that one of my rebates is already coming. If it violates the policy, then i will know sooner that i wont get the rebates. And if not or if they just do it by address, the POTN community can put this thing to bed.

Also on a side note, greentoe has been great about honoring people with their rebates as well.

Unique Photo has charged my CC. The price they accepted was $1350. Get it by the end of the year and you'll also get the manufacturer's $100 mail in rebate.

I put in low ball offers on Feisol CT-3472, CB-70D and CB-50DC. Got suggestion of $510 for the CT-3472 and counter offer of $157 for the CB-50DC. Tripod is going to be shipped, after verifying with Adorama the CB-50DC could handle all intended uses I upped the CB-50DC tot he counter offer(it's still accepted but it seems like Greentoe quits working on these things early from my email exchanges with them over the past few days).

I also put in offer of $1,900 on a TS-E 24 and was suggested to up to $2,000, since Canon refurb has upped the price by about $200, $2,000-all rebates is still less than going current Canon refurb so upped it. It has been accepted but had issue getting processed because I used set up my Paypal Business card on Greentoe and the max backup funds limit on the card is only $1,000 and I had >$1,000 in Paypal balance. I added a second card without any limit issues, tried calling and emailing Greentoe but as mentioned they seem to take off early so it should get sorted tomorrow morning(kind of sucks as I was hoping to get the lens by this weekend and shipping today still might have made it from the east coast).

Have you tried the chat feature? I check it every once in a while to see if he may be on or not. Just scroll down to the bottom... looks like he is on as of right now 4:08 EST - he works some weird hours
