    Hi all,

    My parents just gave my sister and I two iPod minis as presents - she doesn't want hers, so she asked me to sell it for her. Before I put it on eBay I figured I'd give everyone here a shot at it. If there's any interest, best offer over $300 grabs it. If you want it FedEx'd, I can do that for $10 more and you'll have it in your hands on Thursday. Thanks for reading!

    Eric

    EDIT - Just found out from my FedEx friend that I can ship to Europe for $29. In other words, even Europeans can have it in their hands by Thursday (or maybe Friday at this point)

    Good Luck...

    thanks, where do I find that?? I always come through the MacRumors homepage and was hoping for something like a classified section, but buying tips was the closest thing I saw.

    I'll go look for it, hopefully I'm smart enough to find it on my own.

    thanks

    1st of all, wrong *cough*rip off scam*cough* forum.

    If you really wanna sell "your sister's" mini for that price, do it on ebay, I'm sure a lot of people will bite.

    And you will be able to sell it here pretty fast at that price. Someone already has done the same thing and it only took a day or so.

    Good luck and ignore any comments that people make in your auction that don't need to be there.

    i'd buy it instantly for 249usd plus shipping to europe, because apple doesn't sell those here yet. but more than that is highway robbery ;)

    For your info, I'm doing this entirely out of the desire to see someone in the Macrumors community benefit, if they want to. If you think $300 is a rip-off or a scam compared to $350 and up on eBay, go study some more math. The ONLY reason this isn't being offered at $249+tax+shipping is that she already knows what it's worth on ebay, having looked it up herself, and asked me to list it since I have an account with lots of positive feedback. As for implying something with your cute quotes around "my sister", take your comments to someone who cares.

    That's what I get for trying to help out. Thanks for re-affirming my faith in the human race.

    Damn, why does everybody have to piss on the guy's thread ?... I see more than a few "I need a mini NOW" threads posted here- so it's fair enough to assume he was just trying to contribute something to the forum (contribute - NOT donate )... Ease up folks...

    Maby you should stop making duplicate threads:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=71393

    These threads were made only one minute apart.

    Maby one of the moderators could shut one down?

    Please look again. I posted in this forum because I wasn't aware there was a classified forum. After someone informed me that there was, I posted there. 40 minutes later. Even taking into account your powers of exaggeration and mean-spiritedness, that's hardly one minute.

    But thanks again.

    I'm very interested in buying the new miniiPod as here in spain it doesn't exist. The only problem is really that i'm from Spain and i don't like the idea of sending it from the US to my country. How long does it take and answer if that's possible (the ipod is for pc? that's another objection!)

    It wouldn't be difficult to get it imported, since big companies like FedEx can deliver worldwide. What you should remember is that you will almost certainly be charged import tax (impuesto de importación) by Spanish customs, 17.5% I believe. That will significantly push up the price.

    Perhaps better to wait until you see some iPod Minis on eBay España, ensuring that the items are ALREADY in Spain... to avoid import tax.

    Cheers (y suerte!)

    I couldn't believe that someone would pay $300 dollars for a mini. I had to look myself. I found a few of them well over $300. (some whet under $300 too though). I'm shocked.

    Why are people overpricing the Mini's? They are what they are, and you can buy them from Apple $50 cheaper... Grantid you may wait longer, but do you need it that soon... :confused:

    Are you serious ?... It's basic supply & demand... That's economics 101...
    C'mon, you're smarter than that ... Why does OPEC fight to cut production almost constantly ?... To lower supply- which in turn increases demand- which in turn raises the value of their product, which inevitably raises the price... The mini's are in high demand & supply is low-$50.00 isn't that bad when you think about it...

    are people really that desperately in need of mini's they are paying MORE than they are worth? the local apple store has BOXES of mini's just sitting around...should i buy a few to sell for profit?
    if supply is low, apple needs to revamp their supply chain. read my above comment, the local store has at least 30 minis in stock, most likely more.

    Yes you should buy Mini and sell them on ebay to make a profit. If you don't someone else will. (like me. Currently selling 2 on eBay.)

    Supply for the HD's has been the problem. No one expected the mini's to be so popular, and there is only one supplier of the HD's. You just can't make them appear. These things happen.

    No, really , they don't... The only stock any Apple store has on hand right now are service models & that is only a very small amount & not for sale...
