you might have a hard time finding brand new 450d already, since the 500d has been out in the market for so long.

who knows?? you might be lucky :)

Have a look at the Marketplace here for price information and details about reputable shops. Do your homework. Freebies might be free .. but which shop can afford to give away good stuff for free? So either don't expect much from freebies or skip them and get the real things later, step by step.

Try my luck :)

If you do not mind, you may want to consider a 2nd hand 450D.
Check out the B&S sections, quite a number of sellers there.
Save the $$ for better lenses, they really make a world of difference.

September pricing for that kit is about 1160. You should check the price guides section.

I know one that comes free: be careful and stop worrying about dust.
Dust is normal in this world and any attempt to keep it away from your lens is futile. Dust on front element doesn't show up in images in any way (unless it forms a colony already and forms a government). Get a blower (e.g. Rocket blower, cause of its form) that you need anyway also for your sensor, that's it. In addition I recommend reading about lens flare / filter flare and ghosting effects in conjunction with lens hood. If you like lens flare then get the cheapest UV you can find, should be around 15 dollars for standard kit lens (58mm). Otherwise "go naked" (cause your lens was designed that way to work best) or get Hoya or anything further up the quality range.
Something to read: Recent UV Filter Review
