p.1 #1 · CPS membership application


Just wondering, does it really take 30 days? And how long until they send your welcome package which I heard include some free clean and check vouchers for bodies? (CPS Canada Platinum)

Hoping to send in at least 1 body and 2 lenses asap.

I forget how long it takes for the application to go through. I don't recall anything that concerned me. There was a delay in getting 'welcome' and 'renewal' gift packages last summer/fall. I think they ran out of inventory for some of the stuff. It's probably OK now.

AFAIK, the clean & check vouchers are for CPS USA members, not Canada. OTOH, CPS Canada gives substantial discounts on 1D-series cameras and L-lenses, and the US doesn't.

That's true for USA CPS -- two free clean and check per year with Gold. That is for each individual piece: i.e. one body + one lens, or two bodies, or two lenses, but not three. You'd need to pay for one, and I'm not sure, but maybe it's around $75? But you'll be wanting Canada CPS, and that's as Jim said.

Boo, oh well. My 24-70 and 100-400 need to be checked and the 24-70 repaired for sure, can't MF and AF sticks. So the discounted repair is the main draw at the moment. Hopefully it doesn't take forever to be accepted.

It was about 3 weeks for me to be accepted CPS Gold, but a mixup on their part delayed the welcome package another 4 weeks. They had emailed me on a shirt size when I was accepted I responded right away but I heard nothing back, when I followed up the girl apologized she had misfiled my response email. I had it less than a week later.

All I had to do when I signed up this time last year was go to CPS, setup an account, enter serial numbers for the gear I owned, that then told me what level I was at, then I paid the $110 or whatever it was and about a week later I received a welcome packet in the mail.

I did this part but without paying - it just said it would be reviewed and could take up to 30 days. Fingers crossed.

how much is a check and clean on a body without a cps membership, or can you even do that?

In my experience it was very fast. Signed up on a Sunday night, package was sent my way next morning and arrived on Wednesday. Three days total is pretty decent in my book.

My membership in 2011 took about a month before anything showed up. I recall they said they mail out the packages in batches, so I had to wait for the next one.

My renewal in March 2012 was weird. I kept getting messages into April that I was overdue after I had already paid. I can't remember when the shirt size survey came out, but I didn't receive the package until Fall. I think it was a few months---I had forgotten all about it.
