Get Touched

The Deal of the Day today at Cowboom is a 32GB 4th generation iPod Touch for just $120, which is… kind of crazy. I kind of freaked out when I saw the price. (For reference: a couple of months ago I got a 16GB one, same generation, for my kiddo at $140 and thought I’d truly scored.) This could be a great option if you’ve been shopping for a Touch and don’t want to pay full price for the latest/greatest.

Some things to know before you buy:

This is not the current generation. This is one before the current one. Unless you’re planning to do a lot of photography/photo editing, I don’t know that that makes a difference. The changes in the current generation are pretty minimal, otherwise.

This is a refurb. You know how I feel about refurbished electronics—I love them! But this one is listed as having “significant scratches or scuffs.” Maybe not a big deal to you (slap a case on there and you’re probably good), but if it’s for a gift, maybe it is a big deal.

This is totally bare bones. You don’t get a power adapter, headphones, or a user’s manual. Again, this isn’t a huge deal—it’s not hard to get these things at a reasonable price, and if you’ve owned a few Apple products, you probably already have most or all of them—but if it’s for a gift, consider if that’s okay with you.

If you got through all of that and still want one, do hurry up, because I predict this deal will sell out. That’s a pretty nutty price.

    Wow! I thought I had gotten good deals when I got my kidlets 8g for $125. Of course theirs has the hardware, has been completely refurbed to look like new and has a warranty, but still. Wow!

    omg so tempting. we just bought the kids nabi2s (thank you black friday and lightning deals!) but i know my biggest would die to have a touch of her own. tempted to snag it for her birthday, which is in august… should probably decide quickly, tho, because like you said, it’s bound to sell out quickly!

    The site is already showing Sold Old. What a great deal that would’ve been.
