This is the official thread for Black Friday related discussion of MP3 players, regardless of if the items are actually in ads or not. This post will be updated with information about MP3 players that appear in Black Friday ads as they are released. As this thread will likely get very long, if you are responding to a specific question or comment, please quote that post to keep the thread easy to follow. If you are looking for a deal before Black Friday on a specific MP3 player, post in our Deal Finder Service board and others can help you out. Threads posted about MP3 players in the Black Friday Discussion forum will likely be merged into this forum, so to help out the admins and mods, please keep all discussion in this thread.

I've noticed that everyone seems to be having price drops (temp or otherwise) on the Microsoft Zune. Any guess whether they will go lower? Currently "on sale" for $199.99 orig. $249.99.

30gb PMPs(Portable Media Players, know your jargon please..) that play videos have been sold for as low as $149 after rebate, so a black friday ad would have to do much better.. say: $99 a/r...? Just to clear out the old stock....

If it is true, and it is a pretty enough device (how vain of me), I'll make sure to get one too. Last year they had enough mp3 players that there was no need to hand out tickets, hopefully it will be the case again this year.

Right now in the Online Deals section of the forum, there is a thread about a $99.99 refurbished Zune (black only). I ordered 2 last night to go with the 2 new ones I got from Woot for 129.99ea a couple of weeks ago. I'm almost done with the big stuff!!! Yea

I am lucky - my dd wants an mp3 player, but isn't picky about what kind (whereas my ds HAD to have ipod) so bring on the deals. i am hoping for something 2gb for under $50:cheesy:

After buying three no name mp3 players for my son, I am thrilled that I got him an iPod last year. The plus of the iPod was the casing. He didn't have friends lose his mp3 players, they would drop them and break them. I have been lucky enough to win/earn two iPod shuffles, I am hoping to get one more to give the only nephew that doesn't have one.:jester:

I bought a little Insignia MP3 player that has 3 full length ballets and about another 100 songs on it, and it's still not full! It cost me about 80$, but I just saw it for 60$. Great sound. No arm band though, which stinks, but I bought the armband for a Sansa and it works fine. Still thinking on getting a little bit more of an upgrade and giving my insignia to my DH.

ipods almost never have deals, because the price is set by apple and no retailer will want to make apple mad by lowering the price. the most i've ever seen it down was 2 dollars at fry's.

you will have to look at the ad and see what the store is bundling with it - free travel charger, free case, free itunes downloads, etc.

there are apple education discounts if you qualify:

I thought so. I was thinking that they would see any of the old generation ones that they had before the new ones came out in September.

I'm looking to get a mp3 for dd12(13 in feb) and possibly one for dn13. I was going to get dd the new nano, and dn a shuffle, but have seen some others with more gb for less. I have a 60gb ipod, ds17 has a gen2 nano. Can someone let me know how good the Zune and and Sandisk Sansa are? If I can save a little and keep decent quality, I'd rather do that! :D

My dd (12) and DH both have a 1 gig Sandisk Sansa....we got them on BF last year. They work well enough, never had any issues with them other than it's small, DH needs a much larger one, but it was a good starter. We paid $35 for them.
