Got a question? Here are answers to some of the most popular queries about this special offer
When will I receive my cashback payment?
We aim to issue a bank transfer within 28 days of receipt of a valid cashback claim with supporting receipts. Once your claim has been validated, you will receive an email to confirm that no further documentation is required, and your claim will be processed within 28 days.
How will I know if my claim is delayed due to incorrect or missing information?
There are 2 options:
- You can quickly check the status of your claim here and enter your claim reference number (this is on the top right of the confirmation email sent to you which you would have received when you submitted your claim).
- For more detailed information, or if there is a problem with your claim, click here and use your personalised login details previously emailed to you when we received your claim.
How will the payment reflect on my bank account?
Cashback payments are made by our fulfilment provider and payments are always referenced as ‘Canon’. Please check your bank account for this reference.
Why is my bank charging me transfer fees?
We will transfer the exact amount of cashback in local currency as advertised and endeavour to use local banks where possible to avoid beneficiary charges. However, Canon cannot be held liable for additional charges levied by your bank and you will need to speak to them if that occurs.
How will I know when payment will be made?
Once your claim has been successfully validated, we will arrange the cashback payment and you will receive an email informing you that the funds are in your account. You can quickly check the status of your claim here by entering your claim reference number.
I paid for my product by credit card so why can my payment not simply be refunded back onto that same credit card?
Canon cashback payments can only be made by bank transfer from our bank to the personal bank account details that you have provided at the time of registration.
Do I need to pay taxes or can I claim VAT back on cashback?
You are solely responsible for paying any taxes that they are required to pay by law Canon cannot advise on any of tax return procedures. Please check with your local tax authorities.

I have ordered a Canon product within the dates specified for the promotion, but it will not arrive/be delivered by the retailer until after the valid promotional dates – can I still apply for the promotion?
