Question DSLR for HS Senior?

I need some help with suggestions/recommendations on a good DLSR camera and lens for a graduating senior (my son) for $800-1000. He found a Canon deal but it is a refurbished camera and I have never bought a refurbished electronic or camera before. Any help would be appreciated on the below deal or what you would recommend on a new camera/lens. Thanks.

Nikon guy myself. Plenty of options in that price range for both Cannonites and Nikonians. Stick with a cropped frame DSLR, he does not need a full frame camera nor can he afford one on that budget.

Go with something like this, Im sure Cannon has something similar.

What you posted only comes with one lens that's not really that spectacular and the budget is blown. If you go another route you then would have money left in the budget to pick up another lens plus already have one more than you would with that refurb deal. IMHO

I wouldn't worry about refurb. My D800 is refurb and is still running fine. Refurbs usually come with an 30 day warranty as well.
