Hi, I wasn't sure where to post this so I thought I'd try here. I've never done much Black Friday shopping but I was wondering if there's a chance I might find a deal on a Canon 5D3 and where I might see a deal on one?
I appreciate any help!
Ryan

It has been a few years, but I got my 6D at Best Buy at Christmas-time in 2012 for a really good price. You may want to consider Canon refurbished gear, also.

Last year I saved $200 on a refurbished 5D3 from a Canon black Friday sale.

I've always read about great deals at BestBuy on Camera gear, including the camera. My nearest one is lacking, to be nice about it, in what they stock. I did find another BestBuy about 45 minutes from my house that actually has great gear. It's where I bought my 5DIV and a couple lenses. I don't know about Black Friday deals, but I'll watch and see, I guess. I really don't need any more gear.

this is the answer to your question: https://www.canonprice​watch.com/ (external link)

they will notify you via email and text too, i think.

Rather than wait for Canon Price Watch I'd simply sign up for the email lists of those companies you want to do business with. Adorama. B&H, Mpex, etc all have email lists to sign up for. By contrast I have signed up for email notifications from CPW before and to date still have yet to receive a single email.

Also, If it is a lens you are looking for, check out Greentoe and see if you can put in an offer. May just get something at the price you want.

Please fill out our contact form (external link) and get in-touch with us (or you can send me a PM on the forum with your e-mail address), we'll figure out why you're not receiving CPW e-mails. Our notification system surely works as we have tens of thousands of other readers successfully receiving e-mails. It could be your ISP blocking us silently or some spam filtering going on.

It is useful to sign-up for both us as well as retailers directly (if you can tolerate the volume of e-mail). We will often have CPW-exclusive deals, and retailers will occasionally have e-mail only private deals for their subscribers.
