Too bad they don't have these discounts at the Education Store. I might have convinced myself to get a 10GB iPod if it were 10% off education prices, but it's just 10% off normal prices (which is 10cents more than what education prices allways are for that iPod anyway).

I met 5 folks going to buy iPods today because of the 10% off sale today.

$269.10 isn't too bad of discount.

Most folks are going to the stores to get freebies as well.

I stopped in the Roosevelt Field, NY store earlier today and was there for about 45 minutes. Picked up a few new accessories. Saw about a dozen iPods and 3 20" iMacs sold while I was there. Was very tempted to buy the 20" iMac but I'm holding out for a G5 (maybe at MWSF) or a price drop in January.

That's good to hear. I might have to stop by the Roosevelt Field store, as I live pretty close to it.

Ok, this is ridiculous.

I realise today is the day after thanksgiving and the traditional start of christmas shopping for the USA and all, but come on Apple, give the rest of the world a freakin' break!

The 10gb ipod is currently £250 (presently ~$420, yes, over 400 ...) yet no sign of any promotion anywhere this side of the pond.

Grrrrrrrrrr

Enjoy it while you can you guys :(

Glad you mentioned it, I was going to stop buy this afternoon. Thanks for the heads up at the Germantown store.

Hmmm. I wonder why they elected to give 10% off of the JBL speakers and not on the Klipsch speakers I just ordered.

I wish I knew wether or not I was getting an iPod for Christmas! Then I would take charge of some of these accessori deals. Does the iTrip work well?

Welcome to the wonderful US world of Tax Not Included.
UK Store: Prices are inclusive of 17.5% VAT
The approximate price before VAT would be about £210, or ~$356.74.

You're better off buying a 20GB iPod, which is only about $25 more than the US price given current exchange rates.

Very true :)

But my beef wasn't with the 20gb, it was more the fact this promotion is a US only one. Sucks to be among the other 95% population of the world.

How tragic I wasn't born in America.

This means Apple will take my money and give me tasters of what I could get (Sherlock, (iPhoto), iTunes music store) had I been born stateside.

But the big iPod and extras orders I'd like to make will wait longer and could well never happen after receiving another international finger.

Canada your in LUCK

The Canadian Apple Store website also is doing the 10% off of all iPod goods. So this apparently a North American promo not just a US promo.

When Apple opens more retail stores overseas next yr I can bet you, you guys will get more promo's and probably some promo's for your country only.

This is the Big Music Event?

I think this event is pretty LAME. OK so there's no $99 ipod, that rumor wasn't really believable. But given it's the first day of the xmas shopping season, and how Apple is trying to position itself with regard to Music, and the potential BILLION DOLLAR McDonalds deal and ONE HUNDRED MILLION Pepsi deal about to launch in January...

And the best they can do for holiday sales is offer a 10% discount on ONE DAY? How many people will even know about this event? And it's not being advertised on Apple.com? Add in my 8% sales tax and I'm netting a whopping 2% -- talk about slashing prices!

This is the most un-maclike promotion I've ever seen. I can only guess that this means they're just trying to unload some more ipods over the holidays before announcing the next gen units at Macworld SF.

The iTrip we've got works just fine. That's not a statistically significant sample size, of course. But count that as one YES vote.

Did anybody get freebies at an Apple Store? If so, what were they?

Since you don't figure in the 8% sales tax on the item without the 10% off you must live in a state where they only charge sales tax on sale items, can you tell me where to buy a house?

They were suppose to have t-shirts and cds but they probably ran out early if they even had them.

Nothing being given away, at least in the Long Island store.

(edit) They did have iTunes Windows CDs there and also in CompUSA.

Actually I usually buy online from out-of-state retailers so I don't pay sales tax. There would have to be a significant benefit to purchasing something directly from an Apple store, and this certainly isn't it. Plus when you buy a computer from Macwarehouse or the other online retailers, they usually throw in RAM, a printer, etc. AND with no sales tax, it's always a much better deal than the Apple store (even with today's $100 off deal). I'm not bashing Apple or the store, because I know the stores have been vital for marketing and education. But the big music event was, I think, a missed opportunity and a lot of hype.
