    save up a little longer.

    or else get an SX bass if you need one RIGHTNOWRIGHTNOW

    investing in a quality instrument will pay off hugely, especially if you're just beginning

    if you only have 100 or possibly 200 dollars, then try to buy something from a private sale from say a craigslist ad or something.
    A guitar shop will want more for what you can get through a private sale.

    There are some great used American-made Peavey Foundation, Fury, and Patriot basses out there for that kind of money. Very well-made and fun to play. I got a fretless Patriot for $80 with case about 10 years ago. Checked it as luggage flying to the NXNW and SXSW festivals--held up great. Long gone but I miss it.

    If I were trying to get the bass and the amp for $200, I'd try to go used, most likely the SX or the Squier and pair it with a Peavey Minx or if possible on of the Nemesis N8 amps. The amps would help you develop your tone, and either bass should be fairly reliable. Once in a while, though, you can find a nice Peavey used within the price range you are talking about.

    Save up another $400. Seriously, don't waste your money. There is nothing worth having for $100.

    Fender made in Mexico Squires are very good basses for $100-ish. You can find Mexico non-Squires for $200 (and sometimes less).
