Default Best deal: EF-S 55-250 f4-5.6 IS vs EF 75-300 f4.0-5.6 III

hey guys i'm getting a Canon 600D and since Amazon have got great deals now on lenses it comes out cheaper to buy the body +18-55mm and then buy the zoom on the side.
I know these aren't fantastic lenses but it's almost 100 off on kit prices and to start with it isn't bad
Assuming EF mount also mounts on the 600D which i think its true..

So which of these is best?
Canon EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS http://www.amazon.co.uk/Canon-55-250...5309295&sr=1-3

or

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III http://www.amazon.co.uk/Canon-75-300...5309295&sr=1-4

They have great deals on them atm.
Tell me off if i'm incorrect.

The 55-250 is a better lens that the 75-300.

And, yes, the 75-300 isn't stabilized.

55-250 is a good lens and punches well above its weight
