I hear a lot of people talking about how they paid downwards of $60 for one. Since I got my 500d, I've yet to see it below $89. Anyone know of a place? Please help!

Probably you'd have to find one used?
They're usually $90-100 new.

I think you either misunderstood, they lied or they bought it in the 80's.

They raised the prices. I bought mine back in 2007 or 2008, and it was $78 on Amazon at the time.

Just buy it for the normal $90. In a month you will forget about the 20 bucks you might have saved if you found the perfect deal, and you'll be using the lens in the meantime. I'm a tightwad, too, but it is not like it is $900 vs $800.
