    That's my plan, anyway. I don't know about other stores, but Costco offers a free 2-year repair warranty on their electronics. In theory, if my iPod is defective enough, they would have no other choice but to replace it with the new ones. Why would they do this? Because I know for a fact that Costco is constantly rotates their stock, so if they run out of 1Gs, they will simply ship you a 2G.

    If this doesn't get me a free 2G, then I would, at the least, get a brand new 1G

    i was planning on doing that, I bought mine at Best Buy. The only problem is, I can't find the receipt any more. I'll try to keep looking...

    EDIT: No luck, does anybody know if its possible to have Best Buy reprint a warranty receipt for me?

    I don't think they can... Maybe if you knew the exact date and time you purchased it??? The next time I go to best buy I'm going to ask them if I could trade them my 1gen for 2gen because technically my 2gen would be paid for by my 1gen because I paid $300 dollars for it last year

    If you are a reward zone member you can always reprint the receipt from the reward zone website.

    I got my 8gb Touch from the apple store at the end of may. Am I screwed? I really want the 2g Ipod Touch. I don't really care to have the money back since I got it during the student promotion when I bought a mac book pro
