You've a math error. $370-250=$120.

Even if you factor in the paper, that gets you to $70, not $60.

The coupon code takes another $60 off.

Derek Morf's picture

Mike is correct, the code brings the price down to $310, the rebate takes the price down to $60, the value of the paper takes the "price" down to $10.

I don't do mail-in rebates. I always forget to send them in. :-(

Anonymous's picture

Do it the moment you get it home. That's what I did because I normally forget them too.

Deleted Account's picture

That sounds like a good idea but I have really bad short-term memory. It can be debilitating. :-(

Sorry to hear that, Sam.

This is a legit deal. I did this last fall.. Good printer and a package of paper for $50.

One trick, though, is to be sure you cut the correct code off the outside carton.

You're lazy. It took me 45min to buy/open and cut the label off. I went for groceries later and mailed it out lol. Three weeks later I received a check and applied it too my card.

I already made the money back printing to clients.

aaronbratkovics's picture

Errr sigh yeah I guess I can be rude. Sorry.

too bad it's available only in US.

I received this printer when I purchased my 5d mark III a few years ago for free. It is a great printer just perfect for matted 18 by 24 prints. Off the shelf it is close to true color when the printer controls color with Canon paper in Photoshop. Maybe I am lucky but my prints match my monitor very close without all the ICC rigmarole. The 13 by 19 luster paper produces deep vibrant colors with reduced glare.

Maybe I'm missing something, but on the B&H site specs, it only shows the "maximum printable area" as being 13 X 19 inches. Unless your 18 X 24 is including the matte?

S Dreamer's picture

Think he means using an 18x24 frame with a matte to fit the 13x19 in it.

Keith Davis's picture

Yes Jeff I should have stated that better. the 13 x19 plus a 2.75" matte border works great in a 18 by 24" frame.

Have considered one of these printers for a while, but have read some horror stories about the amount of ink wasted if the printer isn't used every day.
Would appreciate some people's real-world experiences.

Lee Morris's picture

They do drink a lot of ink but its $60! That's cheaper than buying more ink.

aaronbratkovics's picture

I bought mine last year. I've replaced the ink about twice now (comes with ink) I print a couple times a month. The ink can sit but I'll print a photo or three every so often when I'm not using it to keep it fresh.

I'd be more worried about the types of paper you'll buy to experiment with rather than the ink lol. I dunno. I don't regret it =]]

A printer is a harsh mistress. You've got to use them regularly printing something. Can't ignore it for a month or 2 and expect it to comply. Same goes for any ink printer. Regular use is a must.

Keith Davis's picture

Steve I can only go by my experience. A while back I had some surgery and did not print for almost 3 months. I have two printers...a Epson R1900 and the Canon Pro 100..both are great printers and print 13" 19 " paper. When I started printing again I ran print tests on both. The Epson had dried up nozzles that required multiple printhead cleaning routines and a lot of wasted ink to clear. It did work properly after the printhead cleaning. The Pro 100 printed perfect the first time.

Gary Robinson's picture

I've had one of these since the fall of 2014. Have printed roughly 240 sq. ft. at a cost of ~$0.016/sq. in. No issues with nozzles clogging from lack of use. If you can afford it, buy 2 or three - for $60 you get at least $125 worth of ink and an extra printhead.

Kirk Darling's picture

"Wasted ink" is in reference to the nozzle cleaning sequence it will go through every couple of days if it's not used. This is my first Canon printer. Before this, I used Epson printers. A lot of Epson printers, because when the nozzles dried after not using it for a while, it was time to get a new Epson. The Canon avoids buying a new printer by cleaning itself periodically. If you're subject to going for weeks without printing, the choice is a spurt of ink every few days or a new printer.

ALLEN MARCUS's picture

I've been using the Pro 100 since January and have been very pleased with the output and quality of carefully-profiled files. I've found the ink usage to be on par with other similar printers I've used, specifically the Epson R1800 and 3880. The Pro 100 will run a purge cycle if the printer remains idle for more than 48 hours and this does indeed use ink. It will also run a purge cycle every time you switch it off and back on again, so I just leave it on. But even printing a 4x6 image on plain copy paper within the 48 hours will save you from these purge cycles. And now, there are very high quality 3rd party inks available for this printer which cuts ink costs to a fraction of OEM inks. Take a look at Jose Rodriguez on YouTube. He is a printing specialist and is the go-to source for owning and managing the Pro 100, among many other printers.

Bought this deal the last time it came around for $80! Just the ink alone is worth that. Thinking of doing it again.

Jeffrey R Farmer's picture

The ink cartridges are going to set you back $125 dollars down the road, so unless you're serious about printing your own images, you'd probably be better off using a printing service.

Matt Kantecki's picture

I already own this printer, and might buy another just for the ink.. :)

davidlovephotog's picture

Awesome, so just the $100 every time you have to add ink? Is it like most where you can't print anything when only one color is done?

David Strauss's picture

Yes, this one works that way.

Kirk Darling's picture

Real world: That really only happens when you do a lot of black and white printing and deplete the black and gray inks. But then, if you're doing a lot of black and white printing, you need to buy more black and gray anyway. Or anything else. If you've used up a color, then you need to buy more of that color. Why is that an issue?

Neil Wallis's picture

Each cartridge can be bought separately, you don't have to buy all 8 together so if you are using a lot of one colour just get some spare cartridges of that particular colour.
If you don't use the printer for a while, like any other printer on the market the print heads will get clogged but it is so easy to remove the Canon print heads and flush them clean and hey presto full colour printing again.

Neil Wallis's picture

I would definitely buy one but the shipping costs to Australia kills the price...

Mike Van Tassell's picture

Does anyone here have an opinion on the Canon PIXMA PRO-10 vs the 100?

Kirk Darling's picture

The primary difference is that the Pro-10 uses pigment inks.

Tony Teofilo's picture

I bought one of these on the B&H Christmas deal. Printer works well, and makes nice prints. There are definitely things you should be aware of before buying:

-It's huge, and heavy. Requires two people to carry and move. Not a good printer for someone who lives alone or has a bad back.
-The USB cord is ridiculously short. Some people use this printer wirelessly, but I can't/don't, and I had to buy a cable to make it work.
-The ink seems to be on a timer, rather than on how much is used. I don't print anywhere close to what other people have said, and I just had to start replacing cartridges far earlier than I thought I would. As per usual, there's no way to bypass a spent cartridge. The printer's dead until you replace it.
-Because of the printer's size, it needs a VERY solid base to sit on or you get blurry prints because the printer moves around while the carriage plunks back and forth. Especially if it's sitting on carpet. I tried several options before settling on an unused bookcase with four heavy sandbags placed on it to keep it solid while the printer works.
-I've done head balancing, test prints, etc, but when I'm printing with good Canon Lustre paper, I can only print one sheet at a time, and it takes several attempts to get the printer to grab the paper.

Overall, the output is good. But I have found this printer much more finicky and tough to use than people who probably use it in a more proper studio or office setting. FYI.

chrisrdi's picture

yeah but....how much is ink and how long does it last?

Lisa Fritz's picture

I just got mine and unpacked it. I don’t see a mail in rebate. Does anyone know what I’m missing? Thank you!

David Strauss's picture

I think you have to get the mail in rebate form off canon's website and then cut out the correct part of the package you got to send back in with the form.

sunny tam's picture

can't enter the promo code now.. i just spoke to the rep in B&H, it was not valid for a long time. so bad

David Strauss's picture

Yes, unfortunately it was a limited time offer.

Steven Hack's picture

where do you enter the pROMO CODE - CANT FIND A SPOT ?

David Strauss's picture

Unfortunately, the sale is over now.

Mark Stutzel's picture

Been burnt and heard so many stories of so many people being burnt on rebates I don't think I can do it. I mean really? Mail in a cut out of the UPC symbol, the receipt, the form has to be mailed even though you can presubmit it electronically. The whole thing is designed to discourage you from doing it, or trick you into making a mistake. Nevermind when they "lose" your form and you spend so much time on hold you just give up.

Robert Huerbsch's picture

Use code: PPEBH18 to get the extra $60 off

Autumn Marcum's picture

Has anyone actually recieved the rebate back and was it just a visa card? I hust want to make aure before I buy!
