iPod 3G closeouts begin; $249-$399 inc. $50 Amazon GC

Been waiting for the best deal on an iPod? Amazon.com’s sweetest offer just became even sweeter thanks to the release of the 4G iPods. Free shipping, $50 gift certificates, and no tax in most states.

  • 15GB iPod (3G): $249 – add $1 worth of additional items to get a free $50 Amazon gift certificate.
  •   20GB iPod (3G): $299 with free $50 Amazon gift certificate.
  • 40GB iPod (3G): $399 with free $50 Amazon gift certificate.

    And remember, Apple’s online store typically begins a gradual evolution of closeout deals following the discontinuation of earlier models, ending in stronger (but very limited quantity) discounts several months later. Tax and shipping will be extra.
