Amazon's rebate practice?
Oct 23, 2007

I had been keeping an eye out for the Canon rebates, specifically because I wanted to buy the 85L. Prior to the rebate announcement, Amazon had the 85L listed for $1,765. Imagine my surprise when I realized that a $125 rebate only dropped the price to $1,691. Yes, Amazon raised the price by $51 before tacking on the $125 instant rebate.

Are other retailers doing the same thing? At this point, I don't care about the $51, and would pay it gladly just to deal with a more ethical merchant.
