Canon XSi Pricing

So I've been looking around to replace the XTi that I lost a few weeks ago and I've decided to go with the Canon Rebel XTi, just want to be sure I get the best deal possible What I've found is the body and 18-55 IS lens for $799 at Ritz/Wolf and Best Buy, or the 'starter kit' from Costco which is the XSi body, 18-55 IS lens, 55-250 IS lens, Canon bag, 2GB SD card and a few other things for $999.

The Costco deal seems best, since I really want that 55-250 lens for other stuff around Chicago as well. I'm just throwing this out here to see if anyone knows of any better deals on the above setup

How you found us:
It would be hard to beat, but not impossible - the lens alone should be about $270, Amazon sells the body, and these same 2 lenses for $912, bag should be something around 30-40 and SD card - the same - so if picking up these items from Amazon - you would pay the same, maybe save some on tax.

I recently picked up mint xTi with Canon 18-55 kit and Sigma 18-200/f3.5-6.3 lenses for $600 from ebay - I did that to keep the Sigma lens, and turning the body and the 18-55 around right now on ebay for $400 - I PMed you about that
