Bought 2nd clip today

Doing my part for the economy, I bought a 2nd clip (for my wife) today, the local Walmart had plenty of the 8GB Clips in stock for $49.

We can share the Rhapsody subscription since it allows up to 3 authorized devices.

Congratulations!  In the CNET Cheapskate blog, the writer keeps on posting deals on other players:  the Shuffle, the Creative Zen.  Each time, I add a comment about this great deal on the Clip.

When apple gives them out to use for Target practice or to use for batting practice… if you can hit a shuffle you can hit a ball.

Reatively speaking:  the refurbed 1gb silver Shuffle was available for $29 shipped.  I agree:  still not a deal, apart from as jewelry.  Much better the Zen:  $19.99 for a refurbed 2gb player, with small OLED video-capable screen.

  My 4GB Fuze, last fall, was the same price as a 2GB Shuffle…and it’s cheaper than that now. so maybe I’m biased :wink:

There is something about the word… Refurb that rubs me the wrong way. Im sure they are fine players but for my money… I want something new.

I think that the term “refurb” often is used nowadays by manfs. to move surplus (new) stock, without diluting the product price.

I agree, and I would not have a problem with that if I were buying it from SanDisk or from the manufacturer in specific situations , but I dont trust the “Outlets” or 3rd party distributers of This kind of stuff. I will buy new items from places like newegg but I try really hard to stay away from refurbs.
