Deciding on a camera.advice welcomed.

So here we are looking at Nikon and Canon and here is where I start getting unsure of what to do.
The salesman sets me up with the T3 and the D3100. Both nice cameras but??? The T3 is a 12 mega pixel and the 3100 is a 14.5. I start doing my research and the T2i and the T3i are both 18 mega pixel cameras. Problem is that the i's are sold body only. That means a good bit more change from my pocket. The 18-55 lens isn't going to take advantage of the extra mega pixels if I am not mistaken which means buying at least 2 lens' right off the bat. If I buy at the local shop, which is what I would like to do, I am probably looking at upwards of 1200 out the door. I can get the T3 with the 18-55 lens for about 600 with tax and another 150 gets me the 55-250 lens. So i'm looking right around 800. I believe I have all the same auto settings with either camera which will be important as I want to be able to use the camera as I learn the manual functions. So the question is whether or not the extra 6 mega pixels are really worth the 400 bucks?
I want to make my purchase at least a week before the April 26th seminar on the Canon EOS cameras. From what the salesman told me it is worth 4 times the 50 bucks it costs.
So what say you experts?
Then I am looking at their website and find this.

Can't go wrong. Nice choice.
