Do you think $240 for an iPod Touch is a good deal?

    Used, comes with a case and the January update. I'm really just going to use it for testing iphone specific webapps I write.

    It's about $40 lower than any prices I can find online :dunno:

    Just buy it from Costco and return it in a month when prices drop.

    Just bought the refurbed 8 gig ipod touch...
    had $30 credit + free shipping...

    don't really want it as a music player (have a 20 gig in my car hooked up to the stereo, and a 1 gig zen stone for quick bursts), i just wanted a small web enabled device to do stuff with when I'm on the go. do a jail break and i'm good to go.

    thanks for the heads up :cool:

    edit: typos

    I've returned over 5k in equipment. Once the guy processing a return scolded me about it, but I just shrugged it off.

    I could see them giving you a hard time - but the store policy is they shouldn't.

    Also the way Costco's business model is setup they really shouldn't give a shit if you return something (which they usually don't).

    yeah, I usually return things with no hassle, but I guess they get butthurt about electronic items :greddy:

    they were treating me like i was returning my iPod Touch after 89 days and it was completely scuffed/scratched up. I just gave them the :ugh: when they were hassling me.
