I am adding this thread to add some data into finding Ipods and selling them on eBay. Read this thread with conviction because you are running into a somewhat unknown source and reason for you not being able to buy Ipods at a good enough price to sell on eBay.
Has any heard of the Ipod freebie sites?
First you can get free Ipods as I have done this myself and for about 20$ in offer requirements.
I received a 2GB Ipod which was then going for about 250 when I did the deal.
You basically sing-up with one of the sites follow the offer requirements and then after a period of time you get a free Ipod.
THE REASON I state this is you are competing with people who do this as a side thing while they are in school.
There are college kids that do this all the time and get several Ipods. They then sell them on eBay at a great price.
I would say you are looking at half the new Ipods on eBay are being sold in this way.
STOP looking for Ipods at a competitive price to sell on eBay.
You won't find them or get yourself ripped-off.
Go to the freebie sites if you want go through the trouble and get a free one and then sell it.
In case anyone is interested. I have received a 2gb nano a 42inch plasma SDTV and two 2000$ gift cards to spend on anything I want for about 320$ by doing these sites.
If you are wondering sometimes how people are able to sell things brand new and so cheap, many are doing this.
Do You see PS3s, monitors, 360s, ipods, tvs etc... being sold by low FB seller on eBay for auction?
And wonder how they have the guts to do it and wonder how they are making money on the thing when its selling so low?
Well now you know!!
