Is the T6 is decent upgrade from a T1i?

Howdy,

We have a T1i with the 18-55 and 55-250 IS lenses that has served us well for many years.  Lately it has been acting up a bit and we're not sure if it's the camera or the lens or what.  Walmart has the T6 on sale right now since the T7 came out and I picked up the T6 in a package with the 18-55 and 75-300 III lens for $350.

I've seen some people mention that the 75-300 lens isn't very good since it doesn't have IS on it and that I'd be better off using the 55-250 I already have (assuming it's not the reason my T1i is having issues).

We have a very small budget ($400 or so) so I'm just looking for opinions on if the T6 bundle I got is worth what I paid or if I should look into a used T5i or do something else.

This is used as a family camera to take pictures of kids events, vacations, etc.

If anyone has suggestions, ideas, or anything else, please let me know.

Thanks!
