You have to work a bit for this- involves selling extra lenses and a printer but the effort could pay off and you end up with a T3i and kit lens for almos $300 less than retail.
All of the following need to be purchased from Amazon NOT a 3rd party retailer through Amazon
Tiffen 58mm UV Protection Filter = $12.39
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras = $199.00
Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras = $200.00
Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Inkjet Photo Printer (3295B002) = $449.99Total: $849.00 + $12.39 + $199.00 + $200.00 + $449.99 – $12.39 (UV filter instant rebate) $150 (55-250mm instant rebate) – $100 (75-300mm instant rebate) – $400 (printer mail-in rebate [images-amazon.com]) = $1047
Printer = ~$200
55-250mm lens = ~$150
75-300mm lens = ~$110
For a net total of ~$587.00 on the T3i 18-55mm kit.
It is a bit of work and there are no guarantees on the sell prices, especially if you have to do Ebay fees + shipping costs but those are fairly reasonable estimates for sale prices.
