DAY#80 - Crazy Schemes
Totally off topic, but if it benefits someone it is worth it, and hopefully you will be amused at my crazy schemes. Yes, this is how my mind works.
So a few people have wrote me and asked what kind of camera I use. I use a t1i from cannon. it is great. But the story of how I got it is cooler.
Amazon had a great sale and had a huge rebate and I paid less than $500 for a brand new Digital SLR that even shoots HD video. I bought everything the rebate
called for snipped off all the upc symbols sold all the stuff on EBAY and got the rebate and I got the camera for more than 60% retail.
This is how i got mine and the a very similar deal is back on right now. They just announced it today.
This is how you do it:
by a new cannon camera t1i
Canon EOS Rebel T1i 15.1 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3-Inch LCD and EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens
by a canon 55-250mm lens
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras
by the canon printer
Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Inkjet Photo Printer (3295B002)
So your initial costs:
cannon camera t1i - $706.94
canon 55-250mm lens - $231.00
canon printer - $449.95
Grand total = $1,387.89
Use coupon code: 5525OMAY (Save $200.00 on this item when you purchase 1 or more Canon XS or T1i Digital SLR offered by Amazon.com. Enter code 5525OMAY at checkout)
so a total after coupon of $1,187.89
then use this rebate: REBATE FORM
get $400 back in 6 weeks (make copies of rebate and spend the extra buck for proof of delivery from the post office)
That takes your investment down to $787.89
Now list the printer on Ebay, i did this around Christmas and sold it for a little over $300. And i did it on a 3 day auction, I sold it before I got it from UPS
slapped a mailing label on it and shipped it back out. Just need to take the UPC symbol off of the box before you ship and advertise it that way on ebay.
This takes your price down to $487.89 for a brand new camera and a new lens(retialet @ $1,000).
This is a great deal. You can even sell your old camera and get some more money back.
OR sell the lens for $200 on ebay and pay only $287.89. for the $700 camera
Anyway, crazy but it worked well for me. and the camera is killer.
