Nikon D7500 Package. Is it a good deal?

I've spent the last month looking for an upgrade for birding from my D3300 with the AF-S DX VR 55-200mm kit I bought a couple years ago. My brain cant handle anymore research. I need more reach but am not ready for a 400mm+ lens yet. The kit i'll list below is $1199 vs $899 for the body only. It doesn't seem like I can really afford a great 55-300 (sub $400-$500). My thoughts are this kit will get me going with an upgraded body that will last me for years, a little more reach, and buy me some time to really save up and figure out what my next lens will be. I just want to make sure I'm not wasting the $1200.

My last post you guys mentioned used lens but I just don't know enough about what to look for in the off brands or second hand market.

kit is as follows:
The D7500 Dual Zoom Lens Kit consists of the D7500 DSLR along with two NIKKOR lenses, the compact and versatile AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and the far-reaching AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR lens. Both lenses feature Nikon’s Vibration Reduction image stabilization for sharp images. Capture sports, wildlife, concerts, landmarks and more with precision. Both lenses use a pulse motor (utilizing stepping motors) for ultra-fast, near silent autofocus. Also included is a Nikon camera bag to conveniently hold your camera gear.

Also are all memory card basically the same? I'm buying a new one and would like to get it correct the first time.

Once again thank you for all your info.

Have a look at Steve Perry's Youtube Channel. He has a review of the D7500 and lots of really useful tips for NIKON DSLRs. The one about the AF system of Nikon DSLRs for instance will help a lot.
