I'm on the brink of taking the dive into DSLR. I have done a lot of research, talked to some different people, and have decided that the 5100 is where I want to land.
I've been looking around and comparing prices, but it's not easy with all of the different packages out there. On the Best Buy web site I found 2 packages which, to me look identical, but are $100 different in price.
The 5100/18-55 VR package is on sale for $749
There is a 5100/18-55 VR/55-200 VR/bag combo for $899 $899 combo (sku: 9999167700050002)
And another 5100/18-55 VR/55-200 VR/bag combo for $999 $999 combo (sku: 9999165000050015)
The sku on all 3 piece is the same... just can't figure out why one is $100 more. Is the 55-200 VR lens and bag even worth the extra $150-$250? Just hoping to get some input. If this is in the wrong place I apologize in advance...

I know that you have no way of knowing this, but Best Buy doesn't sell gray market Nikon products. However, they are usually no cheaper than anyone else unless they get all of the discontinued portions of a product. Case in point - they got all of the D200s at the end of the run and sold them for $500 each.
They also have a 14 day return policy, and then a restocking fee if the box has been opened, for camera and other electronic equipment.
Try the link you provided now. The page for one of them no longer exist. It appears to be a timing issue when the vendor updated their web pages. If the site updates the price for an SKU on the check out page, it should pickup the revised price.
