Three-deal Thursday: A Canon EOS Rebel, Nook Simple Touch, and free video converter

A little something for everyone today, plus a bonus deal on PC games for folks who need something fun to do this weekend.

The Canon EOS Rebel T3.

It's a Thursday three-fer!

Deal No. 1: Convenient though it may be to snap photos on your phone, there are times when you want a real camera -- one with interchangeable lenses, a big image sensor, lots of shooting modes and manual settings, and so on. In other words, a dSLR.

Today only, 1SaleADay has the Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.3-megapixel digital camera for $399.99, plus $4.99 for shipping. That's about $100 less than the prices elsewhere.

This isn't just the camera body; the T3 comes with Canon's 18-55mm autofocus lens. Plus, it's new, not refurbished, and backed by a one-year warranty.

Deal No. 2: Springtime gift-giving season is just around the corner. You know: Mother's Day, Father's Day, and graduation. And as awesome gifts go, it's hard to beat an e-reader.

For a limited time, and while supplies last, you can get a refurbished Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch e-reader for $59.99 shipped. That's the lowest price I've seen on a touchscreen-equipped reader.

Don't let the "refurbished" part bother you. B&N packages them up like new and backs them with a full one-year warranty. Your loved one will never know the difference.

Deal No. 3: Need to convert a video file from one format to another? For a limited time, you can get WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro (Win) for free. Update: the deal has expired. The registration name and code you need to activate the software (which will appear as a trial version when you first install it) are right there on the download page.

HD Video Converter Factory Pro supports over 150 formats. With it you can merge or split video clips, add special effects, convert files for viewing on mobile devices, and more. It normally sells for 30 bucks.

OK, deal fans, what are we liking here today? Nothing? Oh, come on. Sounds like you could use a little fun, Mr. Grumpy. Try this: GameStop is slashing PC downloads by up to 75 percent. My top pick: Batman: Arkham City for $14.99.
