Many of the refurbs in Canon’s online store already have reduced pricing from their original refurb prices, and now with coupon code PAYPAL10 you can add another 10% discount to the price. These deals come with free shipping (for everything over $100, which most of it is).
The Canon Rebel T5i with 18-55mm IS STM lens kit is a great DSLR camera to start with. It’s a $600 camera when bought new with a lens kit. Normally refurbished versions run around $515. The refurb on the Canon store is currently marked down to $429, and with the PAYPAL10 coupon code the final price is $386. That’s a huge discount, plus it’s covered by a one-year warranty from Canon.
The T5i is a powerful camera for any beginner in the DSLR scene. Professional photographers are probably looking for something with a more advanced feature set, but they’ll also need to be willing to pay more than twice as much. The T5i is great because in addition to a solid kit for photography, it also does video really well and comes with a swiveling touchscreen for taking photos or video from unusual angles.
With this deal, it’s a good investment and good way to break into the hobby without breaking the bank.
