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 Please Register or Log in to view images . Has anyone else done this?
