Has anyone actually received the cashback after buying a new Canon camera and / or lens? I tried to find out about it on their website but there is nothing on their UK website. The John Lewis website has a link for it which takes you to their european website and gives an Irish address. The cashback amounts quoted are in euros and not the pounds quoted on retailers websites. I am not sure how I could deal with a cheque in euros without incurring bank fees.

Check this out...


You do have to send the form, barcodes and COPY of receipt to Tipperary in Ireland and they send you a check to spend on more lenses :wink:

Thanks for that mirageii. As I said the website is not their UK website and quotes in euros when retailers quote in pounds (£140 for the 40D). Do you receive a cheque in euros? That would be a bit complicated with UK banks. I thought this was meant to be a UK offer for UK sourced cameras?

Thanks for that Defiance. So despite the website quoting in euros the money should come as pounds - unless they have changed the procedure from when you got it. I notice that a 40D camera body attracts 150 euros cashback and a lens 50 euros giving a total of 200 euros. That is actually closer to £160 now! (Around 1.25 euros to the pound).

That is strange... I took the link I posted above from a page that was displaying the prices in £'s (PC at home). After reading your reply I tried it again (at work) and it is in Euros.

If you go to canon's UK site and click through the links from there you should get to a page with sterling pricing.

This is what was listed on the page

1. Purchase any of the selected products listed below between 01.03.2008 and 30.06.2008.

Cashback Offers Cashback Amount
EOS 5D body £150 Cashback
EOS 40D body £100 Cashback
EOS 400D body £45 Cashback
EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM £40 Cashback
EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM £40 Cashback
EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM £75 Cashback
EF 17-40mm f/4L USM £40 Cashback
EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM £50 Cashback
EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM £45 Cashback
EF 50mm f/1.2L USM £50 Cashback
EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM £75 Cashback
EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM £45 Cashback
EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM £50 Cashback
EF 70-200mm f/4L USM £40 Cashback
EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM £40 Cashback
EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM £40 Cashback
EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM £75 Cashback
Speedlite 580EX II £40 Cashback
Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX £20 Cashback


Good luck

I also got cashback from their last promo, transfered to my bank account. However it did take quite a long time, so you might have to sit back and wait a little. Also i had trouble with the system that should allow me to check the status of my cashback during the peroid from when i sent them the letter, to i recieved the money.
I live in Denmark btw. Might be faster in other countries.

I have just received a confirmation email from Canon mentioning that my cashback is been processed and they will send me the cheque with in 28 days. Canon actually have sent me this dedicated website www.submissionstatus.com from where i can know the status of my cashback.

Thanks. I didn't see the link of 'cashback and promotions' on the UK Canon site (under 'Highlights') before. I don't think it was there before as I looked pretty carefully. Maybe they read this forum ...

The system certainly works. I've just checked my own submission status and the cheque was mailed yesterday so the whole process has taken around six or seven weeks.

Now I am a bit confused. I bought my 400D for £349 2 weeks ago at John Lewis. I had thought that the cashback was actually part of this price. I understand from this thread that the cashback needs to be collected seperately. Am i correct? Sod oes that make the current UK price for the 400D with kit lense £309? *confused*

Don't be confused. Head on over to the promotions site and claim your £45 from Canon. While you are there check out the cashback on some of the lenses as well. 8)
