With the switch back to Canon, I decided to join Canon Professional Services. I always send my equipment in for a checkup and cleaning so I thought this would be a more cost effect way of handling things. It also gives me an opportunity to try out the latest gear. I went for the Platinum membership, which give you 5 or 6 free cleaning and checkup in addition to 60% all repairs. Plus you get some goodies with the membership too, like a few straps, a nice bag, etc. All worth the price IMHO!
