Saw a fantastic price on the Canon T3i and it seemed too good to be true - turns out it was. I read a lot of reviews about how they try to upsell everything and the kitchen sink - the classic bait and switch. So I decided to call and look into the price and ask some questions.

The first question I asked: "Where was the camera manufactured - Japan or elsewhere?" he stuttered and said "of course it's made in Japan". I informed him that not all Canon's are made in Japan and any reputable dealer would know this immediately.

I asked if the item price of $529.99 was still available and he said "YES" without hesitation.

So that was a segway into my last question: I asked about was the upselling and how I read about the bullying sales reps forcing people to buy more accessories. I said I just want the camera and none of the BS.

Before I could finish the sentence he interrupted me and said the camera was suddenly "NOT" available as they "ran out this morning".

Funny thing how I mention the sketchy sales tactics and it's all of the sudden not available.


Just wanted to warn everyone who thinks about using these scammers.

They are making this right after I had a little hick-up with them, its good to know that they handle their customer's concerns in a very professional matter. They are in the process of making everything right and I cant wait to get my new Canon camera.
