    If the Apple store nearest me doesn't sell refurbs, does that mean they don't have refurbs? I mean refurbished iPod Touches, of course.

    Also, DO stores actually SELL refurbs?

    I was wondering if I should just go to a store to buy a refurb or order one online to replace my old ipod. So, stores never sell them?

    And I don't really want to pay for the shipping of the ipod. Driving to the store is faster and cheaper since I live like 5-10 minutes next to one.

    No, refurbished iPods are not available for sale in-store.

    They're behind the counter, for replacement purposes only.

    You can purchase a refurbished iPod touch online from the Apple Store.

    they did let you trade in the ipod minis for £50 they would give you a refub and take your old one away (if it was out of warranty), that was about 3years ago now though so i dont know if they will still do that

    Rats, well thanks guys.
    Now, I guess comes the part where I convince my parents to replace my Touch.
    Perhaps I could ask for a 2G....
