Also, Lowes is on the Kitchenaid.ca site under "where to buy" - so should be no problem getting MIR. When I looked at the PDF for the $50 rebate, it says purchase must be made by Dec 24, 2012. The link where I read about the rebate is:

For anyone in Ottawa, Kanata is sold out and don't think they're getting more soon. Orleans still has 9 or so.
One final question - I bought the Breville 550W (that Consumer Reports liked so much) last night for $235 , so will need to return one mixer. If anyone out there has used both, I'd love to hear which you preferred and why. Thanks.
