Walmart's BF Nikon D3000 bundle...

Hey all:
My momma is looking for a new camera and has been eye-balling my Sony Alpha since I bought it last year. Anyhow, I just saw Walmart's Black Friday ad posted online; in that ad is a Nikon D3000 bundle which includes the 18-55mm and 55-200mm Nikon lenses, a camera bag, 8GB SD, and 2 tutorial DVDs for $449.

Does that sound like a pretty good deal? (I assume so since it's a Black Friday special, lol).

Is the D3000 a good camera for someone with fairly basic skiils? She's coming from a point and shoot and an iPhone 4...

I have almost ZERO experience with Nikon, except for the D40 my buddy has that I've used a few times. I've always used Minolta/Sony SLRs...

Any advice is appreciated. And other suggestions are welcome, but it would have to be in a similar price range. The same Walmart ad also has the Canon T3 for the same price, btw - but no second lens or DVDs (who cares about the DVDs, though).
