if you missed last week's deal on the canon rebel cameras, don't worry because this deal beats those by $50! and it's the lowest price i've EVER found on this camera.
right now you can get the Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm IS II Lens for $299 shipped! this is the lowest price ever on this particular camera. it's almost the exact same camera i use, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i, with a couple less bells & whistles, but the same exact picture quality.
i always highly recommend this lens with any DSLR purchase too – it will allow you to get those amazing shots with a blurry background! totally worth $100 bucks.
