Amazon has a great deal on a Canon EOS Digital Rebel T3i 18MP SLR Camera 18-55mm Lens + 55-250mm IS lens + Canon Pro 9000 Printer + 50-pack 13x19" Photo Paper. Price is $681.53 after $400 rebate + free shipping.
Wow what a fantastic deal! I paid slightly over $500 for refurbished T2i body only slightly after Fukushima disaster. 18-55 and 55-250 are both fantastic lens. IQ rivals that of much higher priced lens. I might add a decent E-TTL flash and a cheap prime to this setup, and perhaps Sandisk 16GB Class 10 SDHC, and a Case Logic camera sling. A black rapid strap will also be handy if you find yourself carrying DSLR everywhere.
you can unload the printer on fleabay for about $200 shipped if you don't need it.

The rebate says it should be from Amazon and not its merchants. The printer link and paper are from different merchants. Will the rebate still hold good?

crap! I bought this am and just noticed that! I could not find this printer anywhere else sold by Amazon itself. Why would they even have the rebate if it's not really possible to use? I hope I don't loose big on this one.

Correct. Looks like the price went up another 10 dollars. Pls make sure you choose only Amazon as the seller to get all credits and rebates. All of them are still available thru Amazon except for a 10 dol price increase.
During checkout you get a credit of 150 for lens and 45.99 for paper

I checked and didnt use the link below to buy, there are some sold by Amazon. Problem might be that it says the order may not be delived until Oct 15th and rebate has to be mailed by Oct 30th. Just hope they get the printer to me in time.

Thanks rhemphill. I see the credit of 150 for lens and 45.99 for paper at checkout which brings my total to: $1293.96 - $150 -45.99 = $1097.97 and with the mail-in rebate of $400 it comes to $697.97 (with Free Super Saver shipping)
too bad I'm nikon guy, just too much on nikon lens ...

Even if you have to shell out another $10 or $15 beyond OP's price, this is still a great deal. I bought my T3i (600d) 18-55mm kit from Sears for $618.40 (minus 6% FW CB pre-tax) last December and just recently sprung for the 55-250mm from Amazon for $149. Enjoy the extra $40 (and printer) in your pocket!
(OTOH, I would've been taking crappy pictures for the last 6+ months.)

You have to add items one by one per OP and make sure Amazon is the seller

Thanks guys ... making sure Amazon was the seller sorted it all out ... just ordered.

Given that the product availability/delivery time for printer/paper is more than a month, this could cause an issue with the rebate. If I stick to only buying the camera and the additional lens, i get the instant $150 discount $898-$150 = $748.
This still seems like a good deal to me.

Canon is hurting with low sales excess inventory. Wait a couple more months for even better deals.

Looks like the Camera price went down further by 7 more dollars from 699 to 692.. the total price after discounts is coming to 1,091.53 for me

Love this deal, but tax puts a damper on it for me. Are we still allowed to bitch about tax?

if you sell everything except the t3i kit you should end up be paying about 350 for the t3i kit itself.

Not quite as good as the B&H deal but I always prefer ordering from Amazon vs. everyone else. Now my total came to $1070.50. Paper 79.76, Printer 325.36, 55-250 lens 200.84, 16gb card 16.99, t3i 691. and 2 58mm filters 7.62 = 1,329. minus "promotion" -12.39, "free paper" -79.76, "free 16gb" -16.99, "55-250 lens -150. = 1,070.50. My non-Prime member account said shipping for the camera and other items in Nov/Dec. I switched to my daughters Prime account and everything but the filters will be shipped 9/24/12. FYI - Prime members get free 2 day shipping. I'm still shaking my head at the difference in ship dates.
