One of my favorite geeky gals, Chip Chick recently shared some geeky fabulous shopping news that somehow slipped under my radar. Target is selling pre-owned iPods on its website. The iPods are discounted up to 15 percent off their regular price, so you can get cute Pre-Owned Colorware 30GB Video iPod - Red (5th Generation) for $237.49 instead of $249, or a 2GB iPod Nano - Black (1st Generation) for $109.
Of course, you can always get "Apple Certified Refurbished Products" from the Apple store for less than the new models. Thinking of trying this?
Apple Certified Refurbished products are pre-owned Apple products that undergo Apple's refurbishment process prior to being offered for sale. All Apple Certified Refurbished products are covered by Apple's One-Year Limited Warranty. For extended coverage, you have the option of purchasing the AppleCare Protection Plan with your Apple Certified Refurbished product. If you are a first time iPod buyer, this is definitely the way to test the water as it will save you money and you'll have a warranty in case anything goes wrong.
