canon wide format pricing and warranties

I am thinking of upgrading from an Epson 3800 to a canon ipf6400 to be able to do 24 inch prints. I will not be printing very frequently and I see too many posts about clogging with the Epson 7900 if not used frequently enough.

The canon wide format printers seem to have less problems with clogging.

My questions- it seems that the canon printers were discounted much more heavily last spring- 2013 than at present.   What is the likelihood based on Canon's past history that these discounts will appear again?

secondly- Canon offers for ~$1400 a 2 year extended warranty on the ipf6400, whereas B&H has a Square TRade Protection plan for around $139.  Does anyone have a strong recommendation either way?  An extra $1400 for two years warranty seems pretty steep.

thanks very much

Jordan
