Canon Christmas Cashback

It’s that time of year again, only a mere 60 days to go until Santa brings the toys for the kids, and photo gifts for the lucky photographers.

Canon UK cash back promotion

Canon’s cash back promotion rewards you for buying cameras, lenses, Speedlites, camcorders and printers this year. However if you are feeling generous, or more clever you will see that if you buy two items that qualify for cash back then you get the cash for the two items PLUS a bonus £25 too.

What this would mean is that if you have been a really good “kid” this year; an EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM with a Speedlite 600EX-RT would get your “parents” a handy cash back of £225. £40 for the Speedlite, £160 for the lens and the bonus £25 for two items.

My top choices from the list would be…

£40 off the Speedlite 600EX-RT – in itself a good enough reason to get two giving £105 cash back! I got my first pair of these in May, add the Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite
and you have an awesome set of flash photography possibilities.

£50 off the brand new EOS M compact system camera, Canon’s first of this type and beautiful to use. What’s more you can get the Canon Mount Adapter for EF-EOS M
to allow you to put your existing EF and EF-S lenses on the EOS M.

£50 off the EOS 650D – so much camera for the money. I’ve been shooting with the EOS 650D recently and it has amazed me at how good it is for all kinds of shooting situations. Great for beginners and more advanced users alike.

£55 off the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, if you have an EOS camera with an APS-C size sensor this is the wide-angle lens for you.

£80 off the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM a favourite lens, yes please. It’s small, lightweight and stunningly sharp – if this is your first L-lens then you’ll be hooked on L-lens quality with this one.

The only downside to this lens is that the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM has £160 off 🙂

Being only 60 days to Christmas also means you’re about 90 days away from the Christmas credit card bills too 🙁
