Apple is currently offering a selection of refurbished iPods that come with a free bonus accessory as an added incentive. Apple is selling white and black 2GB iPod nanos for $169 along with the Apple Lanyard Headphones for free. The company is also offering refurbished 512MB iPod shuffles for $49 with either a free Apple iPod shuffle Armband or Apple iPod shuffle External Battery Pack. In addition, Apple is selling 20GB fourth-generation iPods (color screen - $199, monochrome screen - $169) with a free Apple iPod Dock. Apple said that while the iPods are reconditioned, the accessories are brand new.

This isn’t really news, now, is it? I’ve been considering buying a shuffle with accessory for a couple of weeks… I was just hoping it’d be a better accessory.

But if you were going to buy an armband or battery pack anyway, it cuts the price of the shuffle to a mere $20. I suppose you could always exchange the accessory at a store that sells them to buy something better.

Just got my shuffle and armband this week.  I’ve been wanting something lighter than my 3G to workout with for a while now and this ended up being a perfect deal.

wow sweet, i think that pretty awesome, i mean… nothing close to the newer ipods out today, and not even on the same page as the greatly antcipated 6g ipods, but still, pretty cool idea.

With all the problems ipods have though is it really a good bet to get a refurbished ipod?
