The Back to School offer for the free iPod after rebate expires Tuesday, September 7th. Do you think the new iPods will be released before this deal expires or should I go ahead and order my iMac? Thoughts!
I don't think that the new iPods will come out this month, Apple has had 5 years of coming out with new iPods in September of each year, so I think they're going to stick to that for now on. Besides, I don't think the iPods would be released before the Back To School iPod program ends.
Actually, at least one time in the past (September 5, 2007) Apple released new iPods before the Back to School (BTS) promotion ended (Sept 16th 2007).
However, the new iPods are never a part of the promotion (the fine print for BTS lists the SKU's for the eligible (ie. current as of the promotion start) iPod models and so new iPods are automatically excluded).
