Refurb time?

Hey,

anyone know how long it typically takes for refurbs to show up on the apple store online? I want to get the new nano but if I can save $30 bucks why not?

Six weeks or more is the general time it seems.

Incorrect. Hammer Time.

Hmm. Im not really sure. Have you tried calling an Apple store and asking? They may know. Any one have an idea how long it has taken previous generations to show up as refurbs? I'd like a cheaper nano too.

Seeing as there is a similar thread about the last generation started on 8 December 2008, I would not expect refurbished nanos until after the holidays.

I already checked and that thread was nothing more than mere speculation. I just wanted to see if anyone had any real evidence of when a new product was released and when the refurbs started showing up.

usually within a month....

if apple has a 14 day return policy,... then maybe 15 days from now,

but idk, many people are getting their new ipod nano's on many random days...

but i'm, pretty sure 3o days from now u will see.
