I've got absolutely no idea about the structure of this specific tournament, of course, but I'd be surprised if you got a slow blind structure for a buyin that low.
Reason is, as soon as you've bought in and made your rebuy / add on, the casino stops making money from you - so these kind of tournaments usually have pretty fast structures so they can get the tournament over and done with and, hopefully, have you all move back to the cash tables as quickly as possible.
Another thing you'll sometimes see is a $10 buyin, but rebuys and add-ons at a higher price ($30 rebuys and add-ons, for example).
I'm not necessarily saying this tournament will be structured like that, but it's something to maybe be aware of or check out before you go.
Aside from that, it's almost always a good idea to take the rebuy and the add-on.
