I go out and buy a new camera before our trip.
Off to Future Shop (land of the hassel free return policy) and buy a Canon Elph SD200.
It's very tiny...
Ok... so the price is reasonable.
(hence the purchase decision)
... and then they tell me that there is a promotion going on...
puchase your camera for $100 over the purchase price...
get a tag to do a "mail in rebate" for the full $100 and they kick in a Lexmark Snapshop Photo Printer.
I've been down the "mail in rebate" road before... it takes a while but if you do all your bit... you get the cash back. :)
~ just say'en... sweet. :)
