iPod 30GB for $399 shipped

Dealmac: Apple’s iPod 30GB MP3 Player, a discontinued model, costs $399 with free shipping at Amazon.com, as a reader found. (It’s new, not refurbished.) That’s the same price as the current 20GB model at The Apple Store.

Just be prepared to wait a month to get it, with all the backorders they will have. :) A very good deal, though.

Be aware!

Dell must have used a stolen credit card, and now he walks with $400 cash and the bank is stiffed with $500.

Be aware!

Just ordered it ...no problems whatsoever! Did get dinged w/ tax however for a grand total of $428.03.

Already received confirmation and acknowledgement emails from Dell.

Also, estimated ship date on or before July 22, 2003.

I ordered my 30GB iPod from Dell on May 15 and didn’t get it till June 27th.  Be prepared to wait a good long while to get it.

Chad ...This is the path I took: go to dell.com which reroutes you to http://www.dell.com/us/en/gen/default.htm then click on the Software and Peripherals link at the bottom of the page (http://www.dell.com/us/en/gen/topics/segtopic_software_seg.htm). Then click on Home & Home Office (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/default.aspx?cs=19&c=us&l=en). Then I did a search for ipod in the search box on the left. Today nothing comes up since I assume the offer was only good/available yesterday (July 17th). I’ve poked around that search box in the past looking especially for this deal and sometimes ipods came up and sometimes they didn’t (and of course the models varied). Good luck.

I jumped on this deal when I saw it.  I placed my order on July 17, however, it was backordered until July 22….

Anyway, it shipped on the 18th (well before that July 22 date), and I received it today (on the 22nd).

So luckly I’ve got no horror story.

Just for the record ...mine shipped UPS on the 21st after ordering on the 17th.
