B&H has a really good deal on it right now, for $700 you can get the camera and two lenses:
EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III Lens
Basically you have your standard zoom lens and a telephoto lens in this kit.
EF-S means it can only work on a crop sensor camera.
The IS means that it has image stabilization on the lens (note the telephoto in the kit doesn't have it)
STM is the new Canon Stepper motor, which is designed for video. That doesn't mean it isn't also designed for still photography, it's just optimized for video AF. Basically it's better in video than non-STM lenses.
