Melville, NY—For a limited time, Canon USA is offering a free CarePAK Plus promotion to aid consumers when they accidentally damage their Canon products. “Accidents happen all the time. One minute you’re embracing your creativity and capturing amazing photos and the next minute you’re staring down at what’s left of your Canon camera after it’s been dropped off a cliff, smashed by an overeager toddler, knocked off the picnic table and into the pool, or had an extra-large latte (no whip) spilled all over its LCD screen,” noted a company spokesperson.
Canon wants consumers to focus on taking great photos, not on worrying how much it will cost to get their camera repaired. Beginning May 1, 2016 and running through July 30, 2016, Canon USA is offering a complimentary CarePAK Plus protection plan that is good for a 13-month period from time of purchase, when an eligible camera or lens is purchased at a Canon authorized dealer.
With Canon CarePAK Plus protection, the damaged camera will be repaired by Canon factory trained technicians using only genuine Canon parts—no third party parts. “No confusion—just the promise of protection from accidental damages, for a 13-month period—absolutely free,” added the spokesperson.
Any camera repaired under this promotion will receive priority service, free return shipping and support direct from Canon. Once the 13-month period is completed, Canon camera and lens owners will have the opportunity to purchase an extended CarePAK Plus plan.
Eligible Canon DSLR camera bodies include the EOS-1D X Mark II, EOS-1D X, EOS 5DS, EOS 5DS R, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D and EOS 7D Mark II. Eligible Canon lenses include the EF 17–40mm f/4L USM, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, EF 50mm f/1.2L USM, EF 16–35mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 24–70mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM, EF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS II USM and EF 100–400mm f/4.5–5.6L IS II USM.
All eligible product(s) must be registered on the Canon website at usa.canon.com/protection within 30 days of the purchase date to take advantage of this special promotion.
