I've had good luck with cheap Arduino's on ebay.  I did have *one* scam 
get me. Make sure the price is about the same as the others, and look at 
the reviewers.

Once I got one Arduino, it was actually pretty easy to use that as a 
Programmer for raw AVR chips, which are available cheaply from a few 
places.  The down side to that is you don't get the USB connectivity or 
power supply.  The upside is that the MCU cost < $5 usually, and you can 
get other cheaper AVR MCU's as well, with similar capability.
