This presumes a proper US dealer... A super low cost may be from some dealer selling grey market imports with nothing in the box so they can boost the profit selling cheap third party stuff.

Amazon is a "proper US dealer"

A new camera can be purchased as a "body only" version or a "kit" which includes at least one lens (usually that lens will be an 18-55mm, the 18-135mm is an upgraded kit lens).

Regardless, a strap, battery, battery charger, all necessary cables and basic software, will be included.

What will NOT be included is a memory card (you MUST have a memory card to use the camera.) The T2i uses an SD or SDHC card. They are fairly inexpensive.

A bag will not be included either (unless the merchant packages one in the deal -- but it wouldn't be included by Canon.)

I have 3-4 "camera bags" that came with camera purchases. I have never used any of these bags in the field. It would make sense to ask the forum for bag recommendations (how do you plan to use it; how many lenses and accessories do you want to carry with you; will you use the bag in the field or just for home storage?), and purchase a bag separately.

I've always had to buy my own bags... and they kept growing in size as accessories were collected (the Canon A-1 body became the smallest thing the bag, after adding a shoe flash, power-winder, a cheap [K-mart house brand!] wide-angle&telephoto lens set, macro photo coupler/lens reverser, a few A-series Cokin filters, a pair of zoom lenses, a "handle-mount" flash gun with remote sensor head... tripod).

The bag finally turned into what felt like 30-50 lbs of carry-on luggage, at which point I purchased a Canon EOS 10s, 35-105 zoom, 100-300 zoom, and a photographer's vest; and thereby "wore" the camera kit on travel, leaving me room for a regular carry-on bag.

The EOS 20D went the same route: a photographer's vest [though they don't have the same amount of padding as the old ones] to hold body, two lenses, charger, shoe flash.

My EOS 50D graduated to a Tamrac Expedition 7 (I think) back pack. With all its gear and with a tripod attached, the back pack runs around 35lbs.
