Crap, I just purchased an 8GB refurbished iPod Touch from Apple Store Online for 249.  Do you think they’ll either give me a 50 dollar refund or return it for a full refund to buy another refurbished iPod Touch at the new prices?

Thanks,
Adam

Good news, I just got off the phone with Apple Support and about 3 minutes later, the wonderful gentleman on the other end credited 50 dollars back to my credit card.  I was tempted to return the 8GB and buy the 16GB for 50 dollars more but thought $200 is pretty cheap for an iPod touch that looks and feels just like she’s brand new.

Glad to hear it worked out for you.  Apple is usually really good about maintaining customer satisfaction.

It’s been on the site for a while. It’s very tempting, though I think I will hold out until even higher capacity touches are announced.

twinsbb17,

I also just bought one for my son’s upcoming birthday. Just called Apple and got a $50 refund with no hassles!

Does this point to a price drop or an upcoming update for the iPod touch?
