Best deal on a point and shoot

It need to be slim and easy for a technically challenged woman to use. Yes my wife....

She had one of the cannon cybershots, but dropped it in the water or something.... anyway im looking for something close to 100.00 or less to replace it. It does not have to be the best camera in the world, but i do want to get the best bang for the buck.

Ideas? I was also considering the woot for the day...http://www.woot.com/

Here is a great one, know how I know? I got it a few weeks back...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16830122138

8.0MP 5x zoom lens and face detection

$114 + FREE shipping + today only Paypal is having a $15 off $75 special when you use Paypal to pay for items and Newegg takes Paypal.. so $99

My favorite thing about it is, even though it is a 5x zoom....it is still completely flat, the lens doesn't protrude from the housing.
