Canon 2009 Instant Rebate ??

I know it has been rumored for a while but nothing offical until I saw the below on Broardway's site. It seems they are the only ones have them up, not even the Canon Canada does...

Is it legit ??

How does the rebate work? I see that Henry's has the 430EX II at $329.99. Does that price reflect the $30 rebate?

Not sure about Henry's but I just bought a 430EX II from Aden for $309.99. It clear states on Aden's site that the price includes the rebate. It's an instant rebate so I would assume their list price already includes it. Plus Aden usually has the lowest prices from my experience.

Thanks, I ended up getting it at Adorama.com for $250+30~ USD shipping = $308 CAD. Hope I don't get dinged by customs :|

EDIT: **** YOU CUSTOMS!!!

Why did you not expect to get dinged on customs if it's from a online retailer in the US? They always fill the customs form with actual value.

In the past I found that some US retailers would put a lower value on the package.

Hmm this is odd... I didn't have to pay any customs charges even though I got a message from UPS telling me that I would. I called them back and they said although it doesn't say COD on their system, there is definitely a customs fee.

Are they going to come back for the money after they realize they ****ed up?

I ordered it last night, shipped from New Jersey. It arrived to Canada in less than 12 hours so I'm wondering if the package even went through customs

Wow that's some crazy fast shipping ahah. Hope you don't get the extra charges! But damn that's basically the price I paid before tax. :(

I've received an invoice for brokerage/duty/taxes from UPS sometime after delivery on more than one occasion. Don't count yourself out of the woods yet!
