I just ordered a couple from their Applestore and I got $20 off each! I signed up as a student and they gave me the discount. Free shipping and no sales tax. Saved over $40 on each. Whoo Hoo!

I got the 4meg $199 minis. But I paid $179 to my door. NO TAX NO SHIPPING. Similar savings on other IPODs. You just sign up as a student. I picked a local college that was recognized by their system. They didnt ask for any proof so they must not really care too much as long as they are getting a sale.

The funny thing is that these are going for $200+ on ebay. Now I know how they are making money on these. What I dont understand is why people are paying $200+ when you can buy them direct for less.

How are they getting by with not charging any sales tax?

I just looked and they DID add $21 in sales tax. It was in the second email they sent me.

I
I thought most online places do not add sales tax unless you live in the state they are located in

They must have an outlet store somewhere in Michigan. I think there is one at the 12 Oaks Mall if I am not mistaken. But its still less tax then what I would have paid if I bought it at the store.

I know, I need to get out more. What is an IPOD? I am guessing it is some kind of modern headphones. If so how does it work? Where do you get the music?

I dont get what the big deal is. I like my bootleg cds.

It's a snappy little .mp3 player that costs twice as much as its competition, but makes you twice as cool when you dance wildly to a Jet song, silhouetted by shocking neon colors.

Oh, and they're for ghey people.

Actually they dont cost that much more. But they are easier to use in some cases. Memory is usually better then most.

IPODs interface with my BMWs radio so I can use it was a hard drive for basically all of the song I own. Thats over 1000 songs for my car. Beats the shit out of a 6 CD changer.
