Where can I find a cheap mp3 player?

I want to get my husband a MP3 player for christmas but I only have like 30 bucks. I thought I would get more back from selling back my textbooks but I didn't so now I have to go really cheap. Any one have any ideas?

  • In these hard times. Try a PAWNSHOP. People pawn everything. Fairly new stuff too.

  • Buy a no-name brand. I bought one for my daughter last year for Christmas and I think it cost me about $30 and it works just fine.

  • my SIL got one off QVC for her newphews she only paid 20dollers for it. It works great. I dont know if your up for shoping on QVC i never have but my SIL buys lots from them and she says they are great about letting your return things if you dont like them. You could just go to there website.

  • Bought my boys each one for $10 and it is nice. They are dirt cheap at the stores especially grocery stores who are trying to boost their sales. My DH rarely goes along with my 'good finds' but he asked someone who had it and they said it puts out a nice sound and good quality. Will it have the name brand ipod NO but it is an MP3 and very nice. Now if you want to step it up to an Ipod walmart has them for about $30-40 its called a shuffle. Last year went for 80-100 now they are under $50. Good luck. If you have a grocery store called Kroger check them out I heard they still had a few.
