I don't know if you'd call it "cheap," but I got a new Canon Rebel T1i (with 55mm lens), a 250mm lens, and Pixma Pro9000 Mk. 2 photo printer at a real good price from Amazon after instant and mail-in rebates.
How do you like the T1i? I've been eyeing it. The Youtube reviews of the HD video looks great, but I would like to have some hands on impressions. Also how's the picture quality? I'm really interested in night time shots and the amount of red eye you're getting.
Myself...I jumped on the Walmart Xbox arcade/2 games/ 12 months of live for 270 to replace my RROD'd xbox.

I think I still have those sealed from BF. I kept telling myself I'd get around to watching them.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end
There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in
We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it
I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given
I just want to sell out my funeral.
I just want to be enough for everyone.

The week that Spirit Tracks came out, TRU was doing a Buy 1, get one 50% off deal. I went to BBY to ask them to price match it.. decided to get the new Might and Magic game (MSRP $30) along with Zelda (MSRP $35).. however, M&M was already $10 off... I really wanted the game, and decided to buy them anyway. I expected a $35 game at full price, and one game at $15 -- if they followed their own policy, they should have given me the discount based on M&M's normal price, which means I only should have saved $5.
It was busy in the store, and I was tired, so I wasn't paying much attention throughout the checkout process. I had a bunch of reward zone and some other purchases, so I just smiled and nodded through the total. The cashier handed me the receipt and, after I tossed it in and tied my bag (it was snowing, didn't want the stuff to get wet) I, as an aside, asked the cashier if she gave me $5 or $10 off my total. She responded, "That one (M&M) was on sale, so I just took half off of the other one (Zelda)".
I stared at her for a few seconds, and asked "Are you sure you don't want to fix that?".. She said "No", and they kind of just waved me off because they were busy. I thanked them and went home. Sure enough, she took $18 off Zelda for some reason.
So.. rather than spending:
$35 + $15 - saving me $15 on the pre-discount total of $65 (23%),
$17 + $20 - saving me $28 on the pre-discount total of $65 (43%)
That's my best deal for the month, so far.

I'm also interested in teh T1i, but might just get the XSi. The only real difference from what I can tell is the T1i shoots 1080p movies and has a higher pixel count on the LCD.
