    I really want to get an Ipod Touch 32gb(3rd gen) they go for about $400 here, I've got the money, but my dad thinks I should wait till christmas or after christmas for a better deal, does apple normally lower the prices (more than say 30 bucks) during the christmas period?,

    Apple themselves don't lower the prices, but lots of retail stores (Walmart, Sam's Club, etc.) will lower their prices for the Christmas season.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think they do. But it wouldn't hurt to wait, unless you really really need it then it might hurt a bit

    I'd say wait for Christmas! I wouldn't be surprised if Walmart lowers their prices on iPod touches by $20 or even $30

    Well I live in Australia, Melbourne to be specific and there's like 1 Wallmart here I think..... But honestly I don't care about $30, I've got all the money saved up, and I just want to get an ipod, if I was gonna save like $50-75 then ok I'd wait, but if its not even 100% that I'll save much I will probably just get one now, thanks for the replies
    EDIT:Wait no thats Costco, there is no wallmart here

    lol. well in that case, I'd go ahead and go for it. But I DO know that Cosco does also reduce their prices a lot. You should go and ask about a Christmas sale they might have.....

    Lol, theres only one costco in melbourne anyway. But I'd say that your gonna be looking at about $370. If you get down to $350 I would be jealous.

    But just check the catalogues of stores like big w and kmart. They seem to be trying to beat each other with prices and I saw a 8gb for $230 a few days ago.

    Even apple kinda lowers their prices on Black Friday (day after thanksgiving), but your better off just going to a store that day, or amazon.com it
