for macro, which combination

I currently have a Canon XSi with three lenses. They are the 18-55mm kit lens, the 28-135mm IS lens, and the 55-250mm IS lens. I can't afford a dedicated macro lens right now, so I've been looking at the Canon extension tubes and the Canon 500D close up filter. I'm mostly interested in using one of these with my 55-250mm lens but probably would try whichever I chose with each lens.

I would like your opinions on which is the better choice. B&H reopens on Thursday, so I hope to make a decision by then. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Dan
