The same iPod touch models are also available as refurbished units for $179, $219, and $319, respectively. 80GB and 160GB iPod classic units are also available, selling for $199 and $299 new, and $169 and $249 refurbished. Finally, Apple is offering iPod shuffle models in earlier colors for $49 (1GB) and $69 (2GB) new and $39 and $59 refurbished. As with all Apple Special Deals, all products are limited to the amount of stock on hand.

I am a huge fan of Apple’s refurb site. The pricing on the nanos and classics are very good, though the touches (in my opinion) aren’t as big a steal if you intend on doing the software upgrades.

Now if only the 2G touches went on the site ... (Yes, I know it will be a while!)

If you have an older (or broken) iPod that you don’t want anymore, you can physically bring it to an Apple store for a 10% discount. That brings the 32gb Touch down to $360.

Though you can’t use a Shuffle for that 10% discount. Only a non-shuffle gets you that discount…trust me, I tried…
