    Hey guys, first of all, sorry if you get a bunch of these posts from newbs asking if this is a good price.....but I really want to get a canon 300d and I was wondering if someone could assure me that this is a good deal.

    Right now Dell has them priced at $799 (which includes a EF-S 18-55 mm Lens). They also have a 10% discount on this camera. Which makes it $719.10. Plus there's a $75 off of $550 coupon floating around that makes it $644.10 including tax and free shipping.

    Should I go for it????

    thats a good price for a new one, but watch the taxes. I looked at that deal earlier with the 70-200 IS lens, as it had a 15% off making it 1509 before taxes, well below reatail but taxes were 125 pushing it has what I could get it from buydig.com for

    Actually it doesn't look like Dell charges tax (to colorado atleast). Maybe that whole "tax everything sold on the net no matter what state it's in" law hasn't gone in effect.:dunno:

    Yep, free shipping and tax says $0.00. Maybe it's a mistake.

    Ended up buying it, the $0 tax was no mistake so I got it for $644.10 total. If anyone needs anything from dell here's the codes (from slickdeals.net):

    • $20 off $225: BJ3CJ3H8MGS1SR
    • $35 off $325: 1902C2WWPZFRTN
    • $45 off $375: 0KQ1MC41QXC5B$
    • $50 off $400: 1TLC97PSN7$?9W
    • $65 off $500: HNG4H3PDCP2L3G
    • $75 off $550: JL6MK$330H9ZT4
