Has anyone dealt with https://www.fumfie.com/? Looks to good to be true. Some of the deals they have right now:
T1 - $539
T2i - $670
A500 - $400
A550 - $600

All including the 18-55mm lens kit.

Based on these prices, what would you consider the best deal?

If a deal look too good to be true, it probably is. Read some of the customer reviews about pressure to buy high priced accessories, shipping/insurance costs, receiving gray market gear (not intended for sale in the U.S.), etc. Look for patterns when reading customer reviews (as some vendors have been known to pad the ratings sites with glowing reviews). ;-)

Suggested Vendors:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com

http://www.adorama.com

http://www.amazon.com (making sure to order directly from amazon, versus one of the merchants listing there, unless that merchant is known to be reputable).
