    This looks like a great price on a well-reviewed Canon wireless inkjet photo printer from BuyDig.com. It's bundled with a 50-pack of Canon 13" x 19" semi-gloss paper (~$38 value) and a Lexar 16GB flash drive (~$8 value). Up-front cost is $388 with free shipping in the US (sales tax charged for New Jersey residents only). There is a $300 rebate which brings the final cost down to $88.

    I haven't used this printer, but I've had good experiences with Canon printers in general. This product seems to be well reviewed. Note that this printer uses dye-based inks. The upside of dye-based inks is that they are less likely than pigment-based inks to clog the jets when the printer is not used regularly and they provide marginally more saturation. The downside of dye-based inks is that the prints will fade more quickly as compared to those from pigment-based devices, although Canon claims a 100 year life from their latest dye inks.

    Some reviews:

    Yeah, all the major camera retailers have almost as good deals going on, even if they aren't bundling a couple of trinkets the going rate is still about $90 for printer/paper after the rebate. I did 2 of these rebates, 2nd one was just approved and is pending shipment...so long as they are different specific promotion codes (the major retailers each have their own - bh, adorama, buydig, amazon and probably a few others, while smaller ones like cameta share a joint promotion code). I strongly advise sending priority mail - sent both of mine, they were entered in the system in a week, approved the next, and the first one arrived at the end of the 3rd week - given the same progress with my 2nd rebate I'm expecting a second $300 card back sometime next week.

    BTW the printer is great, finally set it up today and did a couple of test prints, never done anything this big at home before and I'm pretty satisfied!

    These deals do come around from time to time. I got the predecessor printer (9000 mk 2) for $150 last spring. The 9000 is a great printer, and the 100 has a few improvements (ink set works better for B&W, for example). Also keep an eye out, Canon has had some great deals on photo paper.

    The deal above does also include 50 sheets of 13x19 paper, which runs close to$50 on its own!
