The canon rebel no longer has an in cart discount. it is now $575 - $50 promo discount = $525. I realize this is after the expiration date.

@bee7 Apologies, this deal has expired. We're updating the roundup to reflect that.
for the canon Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens, the regular price is $2,499.00 and with the Mail-in Rebate $300.00. So total $2,199.00 not $1,899..

But please correct me if I'm wrong.
