U2 iPods on the Apple refurb store

I know I've seen a few people around here still wanting one of the U2 iPods. There are some listed on the Apple refurb store this morning, for $219.00. I've bought almost every Apple product I own from the refurb store and never had a problem. It comes with a 1 year warranty and you can buy an extended one for $59.


http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL....7.1.5.1.1.5.0
If that link dies (I think refurb store links are timed), go to the refurb store and scroll down to the "Apple Certified Refurbished iPod with Click Wheel" section.


I just ordered one, yay my first iPod.

Nice! That's a pretty decent price. I got mine last June---about two or three weeks before they came out with the color U2 iPod (which only lasted about three weeks for some reason). I've seen the color U2 ipods being resold on Amazon for over $500! Probably more as a collector's item than anything else.

Good find, Neutral! You'll be happy.

Way to go! I bought my colour U2 iPod in October. It was about $400, but that's Canadian funds. I didn't particularly care about the price, but it would have been nicer to have it for a few hundred less. Good find! Enjoy.

Hmm, but can I still buy it with all officially released U2 songs? Even if in my country i-tunes aren't available?

The U2 iPod doesn't come with any songs on it (it really should have, but alas--I'm not the one making the decisions!). You get a $50 gift certificate to be used on the $150 Complete U2 set on iTunes. If you can't access iTunes, you can't get the Complete U2 set (unless other folks email you the songs....).

Can you not use itunes.com in any country? Or are there legal issues, etc.?

The refurbs may not come with the $50 gift certificate , in fact I doubt they will. I'll know for sure Monday.

And you can only buy songs from an iTunes store from your own country, yeah legal issues I guess.

Oh, I stand corrected. I thought I tried before and it gave me an error about needing a UK billing address. Must try again.

You can't buy form the apple store without a billing address in one of the countries where the store is supported. I am from Mexico, so I don't have access to the store officially, however I managed to buy from the store because I have credit cards with a valid US address.

I'm debating whether to get a refurbished one from Apple or a slightly used one off of eBay for even cheaper...

I would get the refubrished one, it will look like it is new, plus you will have a full year warranty. In my opionion, it is a lot better deal.
