Future Shop is a rip off, they sell the 10, 15, and 30 gig for $459, $629, and $799 respectively when the retail price at apple and any apple dealer is $459, $599, and $749 CAD…...

BUT you can give them a taste of their own medicine because they offer the lowest price guarantee…. Just price match and you can get it 110% of the difference back, and their website offers free shipping…. So it could be better than buying it at the other stores…..

Though I’m waiting for a better price than retail…..

Incidentally note that Best Buy is owned by Future Shop (not many people know this since Best Buy uses both the Best Buy and Future Shop brands in Canada, with some stores situated almost across from each other, to create the illusion of competition)

No, regardless of currency, Futureshop is usually always overpriced..

As I said, “they sell the 10, 15, and 30 gig for $459, $629, and $799 CAD respectively when the retail price at apple and any apple dealer is $459, $599, and $749 CAD…...”

Basically, everyone sells the 15 and 30 gig for $599 and $749 while Futureshop attempts to sell them for $629 and $799…

Well…
I know really much about Future Shop and they always overprice the products for their profit.
