Canon 6D (body only) for £749 AFTER John Lewis price match & £150 summer cashback from Canon (£1379 upfront)

Found 20th Jun 2014
There seems to have been some interest in my purchase so here's the deal....

I submitted a price match with John Lewis here:
johnlewis.com/nev…old

The Canon 6D is listed on their site here for £1379 (Product code:82903304):
johnlewis.com/can…208

SLR Hut have the 6D for £899.95 here:
slrhut.co.uk/pro…iew

John Lewis don't typically match online retailers like this, however they have a UK (London) presence, so when completing the form I added the following:

For "competitor price" section under the price I said that the retailer is both online and in London.

For "Where did you find it cheaper" I put High street competitor website

The rest should be self explanatory (I got email back from JL within about 1.5hrs) and its valid for 28 days.

Note: You have to pay the full price of £1379 to John Lewis who then refund you the difference AFTER you've bought and confirmed everything OK. Then you submit the details to Canon for the £150 cashback here:
canon.co.uk/sum…ck/

Picked mine up from John Lewis today so happy days (you can have free home delivery if required).

Don't care if this goes hot or cold - putting it out there as a deal. For me it's probably the best bargain I've come across (~£1400 camera for £749!) and I've been wanting a 6D for some time.

Happy Shopping

For any non-believers out there, I'm happy to post pics of the price-match and boxed 6D I currently have on my desk

... and I'd love the cold voters to provide a better price

Have Jl actually accepted the price match? as all you say is you summited one but no mention of if they've accepted.
Having seen similar 'deals' Jl don't accept the price match for everyone, I do t mean similar deals for this camera rather for etailers where they only have a brick and mortar store in one location.

Edit: I'm a slow typer, op posted a reply while I was typing, well in that case good for you.

I wouldn't have ordered without their confirmation

Was probably just lucky they price matched. Most wont price match for online retailers or places like that. Good on you if you are lucky enough to get it but for most people it's not worth the risk! The camera isn't worth anywhere near £1379 as we had one at work. But for £749 it's a great price!

Here's hoping!

great camera, got one a while back!

Cheers toonarmani, have sent in a request - got fingers crossed, Think you might have hit lucky with an inexperienced CS rep.

If it comes off watch my avatar change ;-)

Greatprice, camerapricebuster have the cheapest as £1299

so got yourself a bargain

Well since the op mentioned this bargain he got in the other thread.
I was thinking it might be SLR Hut.
So I submitted the form for the price match yesterday.
They got back to me this morning.

Given it a go, fingers crossed.

Cheers for the heads-up.

....But I'll try anyway

Did you mention their London address? It's technically not online only as they are registered in the UK. I would submit a request again.

UK address and UK contact number

I have been considering upgrading my 5D mark I for this camera - have sent off a price match request so hoping they match SLRHut's price.

Their UK address is a just a mail handling company, their phone number is just a call centre they have hired. SLR hut are in the US. The stuff they supply are grey imports. You were lucky to get an idiot at John Lewis who didn't know that! I can't believe this deal is based on a member if staff making, what I'm sure will be a one off mistake.

Is that a joke?

I do not think John Lewis are going to take this address as a high street presence.....Especially if they look on Google Maps....

Stick the john lewis pricematch they sent you up on here so people on here can see that they gave it to you.

Tried it too, let's see if it comes off.

Is this better than the 7D? does it shoot good video? And RAW?

Why don't we all just give it a try before moaning at the OP? It probably won't come off but hey, I'll be happy if it does.

Different class

snapsort.com/com…_7D

Just remember its a full frame camera. If you've owned a previous Canon SLR and built up a few lenses they may not fit.

SLR Hut sell the N version without wifi. If the JLP one you received the more expensive WG version they advertise?

I wondered what the difference was on their site between the 2 bodies. I used the cheaper link which they matched. But I've got the 6D WG version from JL which has the instruction manual for setting up wifi and mentions GPS too

Yeah, only takes EF lenses, not EF-S (fortunately all of mine are EF). Low light this evening with 50mm on is simply stunning.

Didn't realise they still made the non gps & wifi,thought they all had this

Giving it a go.

voted hot as this is a good deal if you can pull it of, but with the inevitable influx they may just Google the place and stop all claims.

So now they knowingly underselling it...

They didn't accept mine for Nikon D700 last week (SLRHut). Probably somebody made a mistake - Lucky

Great deal for an excellent piece of kit. ++++Heat added to an otherwise cold football free summer!
