The current "Mystery" spotlight eBay Daily Deal is a new condition Canon D-Rebel T3 w/18-55 for $290 with free shipping, with a limit of five per buyer, offered by eBay seller "electronicsvalley" (99.7%). The listing states this is new condition and unopened but it does not mention Canon USA warranty, so assume this is an import/gray-market item. If you don't feel comfortable or don't know what this means, don't buy. As usual with eBay daily deals, this is a limited time offer, but the expiration date is not known ahead of time.
eBay should do a better job in making it easy for a potential buyer to figure out the warranty situation of a product. Some people are more than happy to take a risk with an import item, however, some people are not aware of this distinction and may end up getting "surprised" later on when they have to use the warranty or resell the camera.

Limit three for yourself and an additional two units as gifts for other photographers. This offer expires by 1/27/14 at 1am ET... Research with Nikon D3200 reviews list...
If you are planning to buy this, the amount gets you free shipping at Groupon, so you can add any of the sub-$20 Groupon items that don't get free shipping on their own - check the Groupon Buying category to see what's available.
Keep in mind, the D3200 is no longer the "latest iPad". The latest model in the D3xx series is the new Nikon D3300 with 18-55 for $650 (currently in pre-order state).
