UK Amazon offloading 5.5g iPods?

    Does Amazon know something we don't about a new iPod launch?

    80GB iPod -

    UK Apple store price: £259.00
    UK Amazon store price: £229.99

    Is this a stock clearance exercise, or is it perfectly normal?

    Ooh nice find. I don't think Amazon know anything we don't...as far as I know the public and retails find out about new releases at the same time, am I correct in saying that?

    Spoze they must have some inside information to help them manage their stocks?

    This is an 11.5% discount. Never really noticed this sort of discrepancy before...

    Someone tell me it's just normal for Amazon to undercut Apple store like this, before I get all excited.

    Normal enough. They've been known to do it quite a bit as far as I can tell.

    I picked up two 8GB nanos for £136 each over the weekend, through Amazon (pix_mania were the sellers).

    through Amazon Marketplace.. bit of a difference :rolleyes:
  7. macrumors 68040


    Yeah through amazon, like I said.

  8. macrumors 68000


    Pixmania is a legitimate company as well as amazon anyway.
  9. macrumors 68040

    easy easy..
    just misinterpreted "through" as "from".. :eek:

    :) it's cool....slight overreaction on my part anyway....

    Been that price since before Christmas. Went as low as £210 at one time.

    Still, great price though.
  12. macrumors regular

    OK. thanks for clearing that up.

    Move on please. Nothing to see here...

    Costco was doing the same thing. All iPods 20 dollars off. Steve, Amazon, and Costco and in cahoots!
