Where should I shop for an ipod?

I want to get my husband either the ipod classic or ipod touch for Christmas but I don't know where to shop for them? Is it cheaper to buy it on the ipod website or somewhere else? I also wanted to get him an FM transmitter so he can hear it in his car, do any of you know if it comes with it or I have to buy it seperately?

  • FM transmitter you need to buy separate. Apple controls the prices of Ipods fairly closely, so I generally haven't seen much variance. Your best bet would likely be some where that you have a coupon for -- I bought my husbands at Best Buy because I am a "Reward Zone" member (so I get coupons for cash off as I spent more) and I had a coupon that took 10% I believe. Not bad, not great. If you really want to save Apple sells refurbished directly on their site and occasionally they will take a decent discount off of items, or you could get a previous generation.

  • Googling you can find a little savings buying from B&H photo, JR Electronics, or another reputable store. If you do search a place out online save yourself a MAJOR headache by checking the store on Reseller Ratings There are places that advertise prices "too good to be true" on hot items -- and they are scams, bait and switch places, and places that sell knock-offs. Just be careful :)
