Default Which Budget point-and-shoot?

My wife is going to Italy on vacation and needs a budget point-and-shoot.
Really need to stay as close to $100.00 as possible.
Any suggestions?

Thanks, I went with the Canon PowerShot A3000IS before you responded.
Pretty good?

Problem,

I ordered the Canon A3000IS five days ago from Amazon, and it still has not shipped.
I just called them, and it doesn't look like it will arrive before my wife leaves for Italy on Saturday.

I check out all the Radio Shacks in the area for the Canon A3100 IS that's on clearance, but all they have are floor models, and I'm not sure if it's a wise decision to buy a camera that people have been checking out for months on the floor.

I need to buy a new camera locally for around $100.00.
I would be grateful for any more suggestions.
