The Bing cash back program is scheduled to end on the 30th of July, I know that many people have resorted to buying most of their equipment from authorized ebay dealers and have obtained brand new equipment at 'used' prices by combining rebates/discounts/ebay bucks with the Bing cash back discount program, seems that option will end quite soon..

So I am wondering what you all think, do you think this will drive the overall market prices of all 'used' photography equipment, namely lenses and bodies to rise here on the forum?

Hard to tell. I'm leaning towards maybe just a slight increase. I think it will make it easier to sell used gear. There will still be the 3% Mr. Rebates and 2% eBay Bucks.

At least no more PM's from potential buyers asking sellers to reduce price due to them being able to buy said gear for less on eBay with Bing.
