Apple doesn't give discounts to students anymore on the iPods. The prices are lower now then they used to be with the discounts. So that's why no discounts. I know, it sucks. That's the reason why I went back to school, just kidding! =)
Best Buy has 4G Nanos for 199, free shipping and you get a free 25 dollar gift card. I say, buy 2, then get your third for 150 and then you still have another 25 dollar card coming from the third to buy another gift or give as a gift!
Hi. The Philly Inquirer had a tech report on the IPOD over the weekend. After reading the report, I feel that the best place to get one that is top of the line and current is on the IPOD website. They said Apple regulates store prices so they don't go too low. They said the ones that are offered lower are older styles & models.
Just to co-sign on the refurbished ipod bandwagon...I have referred several people to the Apple's refurbished product store in the last few months...I got a mini this summer (which I had been eyeing for over a year) and I did have a slight problem but I took it to the apple store and I received a new one on the spot! Some people maybe wary over used goods (I must admit I did not like having to return a recently purchased item) but Apple has the best policy and process (on tech stuff) that I have seen in a while...Just a thought...happy shopping
