Default FYI, Staples is liquidating Ipods

If you have a Staples in your area, call or go by and see if they have any. Even if they still show full price on the shelves, they will ring up at or approximately as follows:
16gb 5th gen Nano- 78$, 8gb Nano- 98$ (no idea why), 32gb Touch (108), 16gb Touch (98)

If they do have them, go on ebay or onlinecouponshop.com and buy a 25$ off 75$ printable coupon, enjoy.

My local staples has about 10 left, all 16gb Nanos, they have the cardboard thing so you can't steal them and they have to go to the back, but when I got to the register the asshole manager claimed they were out and took the cardboard thingy like he was going to put it somewhere other than back on the shelf. I told him there was like 9 or 10 more, he just nodded. I guaran-****in-tee he's hoarding them for himself.

But yea, if you're lucky go to your's and you might score one.

Ummm, why? Are they not carrying them anymore? I might make a trip down there tomorrow and snag a few 32 gig Touch's. One for me, and the rest to sell.

If you turn $50 on each you can probably buy a couple gallons of trans fat and not have to worry about getting middled for a few days.

They are just getting rid of the 5th gens. Here's a pic someone took for those non believing. It was my plan too, I bought 2 different 25$ off 75$ coupons, get there at like 8:54 all happy and grab my iPod and like I said, dude totally shot me down. I'm going to go back tommorow morning. I bet they have them, otherwise they wouldn't have that many cardboard-take-to-register thingies on the shelf. 1 or 2 off from actually inventory is easily believable, but 10? I doubt it.

And reference reselling, the "it" item, ala Tickle Me Elmo of xmas past, for this xmas season you need to be stocking up on if you can find them, Sing A Ma Jigs.

Are you sure it's a nationwide thing? It might only be at your local Staples.

If this is nationwide then I need to scrounge some money up. Can make some decent cash by hustling.

100% sure it's nationwide, huge threads on Slickdeals, Fat Wallet, Dealnews, etc.

Good tip. Hopefully no one else knows about this 'round my way.

Even if I don't end up selling any I can upgrade from my 8 gig to a 32 gig for basically nothing.

Wonder if it is in canada aswell. I already got one, but that is a steal and could be a good gift for someone I like, but don't like enough to actually put any thought into said gift.

I have 5 Staples within a 15 mile radius. I'm sure I can find a 32 gig Touch at least for myself.

that will make you bank, but these staples ipods might be a scam, only being advertised to get more people to come to staples then they don't actually have ipods to sell, like the OP said. OP might even work for staples. this mystery must be solved

Oh for sure, I'm not going to just drive to all these Staples willy nilly. I've got the Staples.com tab open ready for 10am when they all open. I'm calling each one before-hand to make sure I'm not wasting my time.

My buddy does the same thing for iPhones. He scours the internet for deals and then re-sells for a big profit. I'm pretty sure he's selling 2-3 a week still. When the 4th version came out he was selling double digits a week.
