I bought an 8 gig iPod Touch from Amazon for $276.99 on Jan 8th (received it Jan 14th). Needless to say, I was disappointed not having the latest and greatest <24 hours after I opened it. I didn't qualify for the Apple $20 rebate since I purchased it from Amazon. Amazon dropped the price of the 8 gig Touch to $258.99 on the models in stock (without the new Apps). So I called Amazon (actually they call you) (Customer Service Link). I asked the guy if I could be refunded the difference... less than 3 minutes later I have my $18, no problem. Win-win situation, I got my Touch for a cheaper price than from Apple and I'm enjoying the new Apps. I hope this helps those who recently bought the Touch from Amazon. One more thing... I absolutely love my Touch!
