Default which of these CPL filter would you pick?

Hi,
I've been reading some of the other threads about filters. I've narrowed it down to these circular polarization filters and UV filters, but would like your insights on how these three might be different. I've included the full URL for these after the main text.

About me: I just got my first DSLR camera! It's a Canon T1i, kit lens. I want filters that will help with sunny photography. I understand that my lens isn't top quality, so it may be that the filters I've picked are over the top? I'm not sure. Will I notice any difference with a cheap Tiffen filter kit? My plan is to have the UV filter on most of the time, and use the polarizing filter on top of it.

1. $30 - Hoya 58mm Pl G Series Circular Polarizer Lens Filter - G58CRPL
2. $37 - HOYA 58CIR 58mm Circular Polarized Filter
3. $32 - Kenko E-Series 58mm Circular Polarizer Filter

I also would like your opinion on which UV filter.

1. $23 - Hoya 58mm UV (Ultra Violet) Multi Coated Glass Filter
2. $22 - B+W 58mm UVA (Ultra Violet) Haze Filter #010 (uncoated?)

One other question. I can't tell if these UV filters have threads on the outside to put an additional polarizing filter on top. Is that pretty standard?

Thanks so much for helping out.
