About three weeks ago I was talking with my husband and I mentioned that since upgrading the operating system on my MacBook Pro, I couldn’t scan photos from my scanner anymore. I could still print from my laptop, but I couldn’t scan photos into it. We talked about having to get a new printer/scanner and then went on with our day.
3-4 days later (it was actually April Fool’s Day!) I received a notice from Klout letting me know I was chosen for a Klout Perk because of my influence in business. And guess what it was —
A Canon Maxify printer/scanner/fax.
I checked their site to make sure it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke. They had a new front page talking about their new “perks”, one of which was a trip to Mars for April Fools Day (very cute by the way!) but nothing about a printer. I confirmed my information and they said it would be delivered shortly and a few days later, it arrived!
My daughter and I decided to try and hook it up ourselves since my husband wasn’t home and he would have normally done it. The instructions were easy to follow and we had it up and running in about 25 minutes.
One of the reasons I wanted the scan option was to digitalize old photos that my mother had. I wanted to share them with my cousins and also preserve them in case they got damaged. I grabbed some of the photos to see if I could scan them — and it worked!
The first photo is my mother (third in the row) with three of her five siblings. The second photo is me with my grandparents and some of my cousins on vacation in 1967. I’m the one on the front with the striped shirt.
Thank you, Canon and Klout! Not only will this help me with my business, being able to scan these treasured photos means so much to me.
Disclosure: Even though I received this fabulous printer/scanner/fax from Canon and Klout, they did not ask or require that I write a blog post. I’m sharing my experience because I’m grateful and happy to receive it!
Nice! I have to say that I’m a little jelly. My printer doesn’t and I’ve been procrastinating getting a new one. The features on this thing is awesome. Have a ball.
This looks like a great printer! I love all things Canon, and my daughter was just asking if I could look into a photo printer and scanner. I”m going to check this one out!

wowsa that is quite the printer. what great timing for you to receive such a great perk.
Talk about perfect timing! That’s so awesome:)
Oh, wow this is a great perk. I have gotten quite a few perks but nothing like this. It is also about time for me to invest in a new printer as my current one is on its last legs.
That is an amazing perk. So happy you received it, and I hope it works well for you!

That looks like a wonderful printer. This would make a great resource in my homeschooling!
I think that is the best Klout perk I have seen. I am glad you were able to preserve those old photos.

Having a quality scanner/printer is such a great way to protect and share those treasured photos! I have a Canon and have been really happy with how easy it is to operate as well as the quality of scans and copies! P.S. Love your photos!

Wow, now that is some perk! I love your photos, and it’s great that you can use this to scan. I need a new printer and will definitely be looking into this one.

Nice perk from Klout! I too would of thought it was a April’s Fool joke – nice that it was not, Looks like a really nice system – having a good printer is so important.
That’s great Joanne. I’m happy for you. You must be a big influence on the web for them to consider you for such a great gift. Enjoy.
