Hey, on 29th September, i was watching the apple keynote and realized that the iPoT was finally out. (i hadnt realized earlier as i just started with college and it had been a lot of work). So i started looking online (as there is no apple store around this area) for some good deals for the iPoT 8 gig.. i found about the target $30 discount and decided to go with it. I placed my order and started to wait patiently. After 1 week of waiting with an estimated delivery date of over 1 month, i got sick and cancelled the order. I was too impatient to get my hands on the touch. So i ordered it from apple.com (7th October)... which gave me a 10day delivery date. I was happy with it. Then after 1 or two days i think, there were these free songs from itunes through the ticketmaster facebook group. I made a lot of account and got nearly 100 free songs. used 60 of them. Today in the morning i got an email from apple appriciating my itunes purchases (i never used itunes store otherwise), and they gave me a $30 coupon for the next purchase i make at the apple store above $300. I called apple immideately and asked them whether they could apply this code for me on my current unshipped iPoT. They Agreed. My iPoT's being shipped tomorrow. I'm loving it.... Moral of the story is, i got 100 free songs, $30 discount on my iPoT, a certain shipping date, Direct business from apple.
