Love a good deal? Canon has added a few amazing rebates on their DSLRs and lenses, and I automatically thought: I could use a new lens for my canon SLR.
Was I shopping for one? No, not really. But I can't turn down a good deal, and gadget rebates are a huge temptation, much like passing a department store with a huge sale sign.
The thing is, I love them when there's a rebate on something I was already planning to buy — it's like icing on the cake. But sometimes a rebate is all I need to get my credit card out (bad habit, I know). That said, I've never been shopping for a gadget and had my heart set on a brand when a fabulous rebate swayed me the other direction.
What about you? Do rebates sway you into a buying a certain brand or product?
