'Cash in With Canon' Program Returns with an Array of Rebates; Double and Triple Savings For An Even Greater Value

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y--Oct. 18, 2005--Football season, leaves changing color, holiday gatherings and other fun activities are all opportunities to capture and share memories. This year Canon U.S.A. helps make it easy and affordable with the "Cash in With Canon" Rebate Program. When customers purchase program eligible items from a Canon U.S.A. Authorized Dealers and resellers from Oct.15, 2005 to Jan. 15, 2006 they will receive up to double or triple savings!

Canon is offering mail-in rebates of up to $100 on select products, including the EOS Digital Rebel XT, EOS 20D, select PIXMA printers and a variety of EF lenses.

When a customer buys any two different products in the program, the rebate value is doubled, if he/she purchases three or more, the values are tripled. For example, if a customer purchases a Digital Rebel XT camera with a $75 rebate value and then adds a telephoto lens, like the EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 III with a $5 rebate value, the value is doubled ($80 becomes $160). If the same customer adds a PIMXA iP6600D printer with a rebate value of $25, the rebate value would be tripled for a total savings of $315 ($105 becomes $315).

All cameras, lenses and printers in this season's Cash in With Canon program are eligible for double and triple savings. Single rebates are also available on four EX-series Speedlites and six IS (Image Stabilizer) Binoculars. Full program details and permitted product combinations for double and triple values are available at Canon U.S.A. Dealers and on Canon's Web site: www.usa.canon.com/nfl.

Upon submission, rebate recipients are automatically entered into the third annual Canon Fantasy Photographer Sweepstakes drawing. All customers who submit their claim forms by Dec. 30, 2005 and that are received no later than Jan. 6, 2006 will be eligible for a chance to shoot the 2006 NFL Pro Bowl game from the sidelines in Hawaii just like the pro photographers. No purchase necessary; entry is also possible through Canon's website www.usa.canon.com/nfl

The lucky winner of the Canon Fantasy Photographer Sweepstakes drawing will win a trip for four to the 2006 NFL Pro Bowl on Feb. 12, 2006 in Honolulu, Hawaii, one EOS Digital Rebel XT camera kit, air and seven days/six nights hotel accommodations, four game tickets and one pass for on-field access to shoot on the sidelines along with professional sports photographers. Just like the pros covering the game with their Canon gear, the lucky winner will have the experience of a lifetime shooting the game's biggest stars in paradise.

"The Cash in With Canon Rebate Program gives consumers the chance to save big when they purchase a Canon system - camera, lens and printer," stated Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the Consumer Imaging Group at Canon U.S.A., Inc. "This package will deliver the ultimate photographic experience and a tremendous value at the same time."

To claim rebate, purchases must be made from Oct. 15, 2005 through Jan. 15, 2006. Customers must complete and submit the following to be postmarked by Feb. 6, 2006 and received by Feb. 13, 2006: rebate form, a copy of the sales receipt with price paid, dealer name, product model and date clearly legible; a copy of the customer portion of the original Canon U.S.A. warranty card and an original cut-out of the UPC code and body/lens number.
