Help sought for Canon Rebel T5 Camera

Looking for a camera for my dad and he wants Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens. (Camera with lens.)

I've seen some historical/expired listings, but nothing current. Some of the options we've narrowed it down to are:

Abe's of Main $324.95 [abesofmaine.com]
Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens
No shipping, no sales tax.

Or Walmart where we'd get the camera with lens plus the accessory bundle: [walmart.com]
Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens kit
$399 but also sales tax, so probably about $431.

We are leaning towards the Walmart one with the accessory pack. It includes two additional lenses which retail for about $16 each, 2 tripods, a camera bag, few other incidentals.
No matter what, we'd have to get a bag and those can be $25-$100 depending what you buy. I doubt it all adds up to $100 more, but we probably don't want to take the time to track down on the items separately, plus figure out a bag that fits well before we even have the camera in hand. Since it's a gift - we want to give it all at once, no unpack the camera and carry it around to stores to select a bag.

And BTW - we know the two extra lenses aren't great - but they'd be good starter features in this situation.

So does anyone have additional ideas? Or some place that might price match Walmart but perhaps not have to charge sales tax? That alone would save about $30. Or even someplace that would pricematch and has some other benefit, like rewards. For instance Kohls sells this online and has $10 Kohls Cash. They price match, but their exclusions list Canon cameras.

I found the Walmart option is actually through Focuscamera.com. If I order directly from them, doesn't look like sales tax is added.
