Need to give a bit more info as to what sort of camera you want and what you plan to use it for.

Just been looking on Jessops Website.

They've got the Cannon 550D on offer for £509 or the 110D for £479 (Including extra 70/300 lense, bag, uv filters, screen protector etc)

Is one of these a good option?

Is it worth spending alittle bit more (£500+) for a better camera also?

It's £40 more for the 550D + lens at Jessops (they're taking the £40 cashback off, but you pay £540 then apply after).

I'd get that anyway, the 1100D isn't as good and the bundled kit is of questionable value and quality.

You can always spend more. Another £100 gets you a 600D (flip out screen is main difference) and a rather ugly looking bag:
Canon EOS 600D Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm IS II Lens (5170B072AA) - wex photographic
+ £50 cashback on this model.

Or you can look at the Nikon D5100

But the 550D is a nice camera, good value and I suspect you'll be happy. Try and buy one quick before the Sony people wake up.

Is the cash back you talk about from quidco?

Edit: just seen the cash back offer on their website

Right, Thanks for all your advice.

I've just bought the following from Currys (needed a camera today).

Cannon EOS 600D (15/55mm IS II Lens) + extra battery + IR remote.

Cannon Bag and stand

£675 + 50 Cash Back = £625
Jobs a goodun.
