Now that the new sixth-generation iPods have been announced and are commin' out next week, it's entirely possible the older versions will make some good doorbusters. At leas that's what I'm hopin' for as well. :yup:

Toys R Us and I think a couple others had the iTouch with a $50 gift card last year. I think that's all I've seen though.

Someone told me once at a department store that Apple doesn't allow discounting. So, the best they can do is throw in a gift card. However, with the new ipods coming out, Apple will lower the retail price of the older gens.

Any major differences between old and new? This is new territory

Did they say exactly when they will be available? I have 10% off at Target, but it expires on Monday. I was hoping to use it on the new 64gb touch.

In about a week, but I'm guessing they won't hit Target until days/weeks after they first appear in Apple Stores, so I'd be very surprised if they were at Target on Monday.

With it being almost 3 months until BF, I doubt stores will have enough inventory of the old model to make them a BF ad item.

Defiantly the new Nano, it now has a touchscreen and looks like a mini iTouch. The new Shuffle looks more like the Shuffle before last with bringing the buttons back and the new iTouch has a few new things including rear and front facing cameras! Check them out here: http://www.apple.com/

That looks like the last generation but Apple lowered it to that price months ago. Kmart is making it look like it's on sale. ;)

Hopefully the Nano is too because I have to charge mine like every other day. My Touch lasted weeks! ;)

Wow, I need to charge my Touch every single day. Though that could be because I leave the White Noise app on every night to put me to sleep.

Haha, yup that's probably it. Be thankful you don't have a Nano! ;) I pretty much just used mine in the car.

I had planned on getting a touch for my 10 yr old, but the new one is really cool. Do you think that the new one will have some sort of parental control on the browser? Maybe that is too much to ask. lol

I THINK there is one, my husband locked down his sister's touch somehow.

I have my first gen Nano and I still haven't bought a new one. :D I wonder how long I can keep this up

GO BRUINS!

Don't like the shuffle or nano. They make a nice overpriced MP3 player, but I'd rather have the touch so I can use it for more than just music.

The touch is really nice. My DD has had 2 (the first was stolen). I would recommend it over the other Apple MP3 players.

Apple seems pretty hardcore about NOT discounting items, even those that are now not the current model. I'm not really sure what they do with all that old stock, but I remember when the new iPhone came out, my current phone (3GS, 32GB), IMMEDIATELY became unavailable anywhere, even though it's still a perfectly good phone. I think Apple wants people to upgrade to the newest versions ASAP so they don't have to keep supporting the older version. That said, I agree with the people up there, the most they could do for apple stuff is to offer a gift card, or possibly deals like a free case or something.

iPods DO go on sale. Last Black Friday, I bought the 32 GB latest version Touch for $269 on Amazon. Regular price was $299. No gift card - just a discount.

I don't believe that was a "real" discount. That was the regular price as I bought one for DD months before Black Friday and got it for that price.

Mine lasts 4 hours with just the Kindle app running. Maybe turning off the wifi would help. I just bought this one in March- and it's been like that since I got it.

Yes, Sugga- Amazon inflates the prices a bit causing it to look like a discount. MSRP was $269 on it. BUT- Amazon somehow has the ability to fluctuate 2% on their prices, so they can usually offer it a buck or two cheaper than somewhere else.
