    My dad works at best buy, and every 6 months or so, all employees get a special discount for one weekend where they get anything in the store for what the store pays +5%. How much does best buy pay for ipods? the weekend is august 9 10 and 11 which is kinda far away and i'm gonna have enough to buy one from apple on wednesday, so is it worth my time to wait, or would there be not much discount?

    I think it would definitely be worth it to wait cause best buy has to make money too so...

    you'll save alot

    I'd say wait, I wouldn't because I like having everything right away

    , but if you can wait, and money is a big deal, then wait.

    but how much would i save?
    if it was like 2 dollars, it wouldn't be worth waiting all that time
    but if it was like 50 or 75 i would wait for sure

    Yep my brother worked there, Apple usually make contracts so that the cheapest stores can sell it is only with like a $10 profit, so when best buy pays %5 for an iPod they pay it out of their pocket pretty much. Buying iPod with employee discounts never get much.......infact I think best buy use to not give a discount ever for employees

    Employee discounts =/= getting something at cost.
