    I returned my Shure SE210 heaphones; no restocking fee. I exchanged my dead pixeled iPod Touch for another; no restocking fee.

    What if during Macworld 2008 Apple decides to come out with a new iPod of some sort, and I really want it? Will Apple charge me a restocking fee if I try to return my Touch for the new iPod? What if it's within (or not within) the 14 day return period? :confused:

    What "new iPod" are you speaking of?

    Apple just released the Touch not too long ago, along with the Classic and new Nano.
    Don't get your hopes up.

    If you return something when there's nothing wrong with the product and it's apple branded you will be charged a restocking fee if it's open.

    It's just so they can rip some extra money out of your wallet. No restocking fee in the UK though.

    Don't get your hopes up for a new iPod. There's no logical reason for them to waste their money releasing one until people want more. Everyone just got them for Christmas and it would cause a lot of unease in buying an iPod if they updated them so often.

    Restocking fee is applied only on serialized products. If these products are opened and you return it within 14 days, there's a restocking fee. If you don't open it and return it within 14 days, there is no restocking fee.

    It's mainly due to the fact that they have to take the product off the floor, send it back to Apple to get "refurbished" or made into parts.
