Apple iPod touch 8GB, 2G + Free Case - £135 @ Tesco Direct

Found 12th Sep 2009Made hot 12th Sep 2009
Hi,

Been looking to get an itouch for a christmas present and have found this offer. I understand that the 'new' Apple iPod Touch 8GB, 3rd generation is actually the 2g which has been rebadged as 3g. (please can someone more knowledgable correct this if I am wrong).

This deal is for the 2nd generation.
The price has been reduced from £165 to £135.
Comes with a free case (there are 4 available all c£12).
You also get 260 points which in 4x deals gives you £10.40 of deals on a spend of £130 -i.e. if you use the £5 tesco discount - listed below. (updated)
You can go via quidco for 4% - quidco has just tracked and validated took about half an hour.
And there is a voucher code advertised on Quidco for a £5 saving TDX-DRET.
Collect at store saves the delivery charge.

Hopefully this is a good deal.

UPDATED - taking all the above into account - brings the price to
£135- £5 voucher - c£5 (quidco) - c£10 (4x Tesco Deals) - £12 (for a case) = £103

FHM
ps don't know how to post picture but have had a go - hope it works and is the correct way to do things

AFAIK the 2g and 3g are the same feature wise, but they do use different internal components.
I.e apparently the wifi chip is better

I'd just go for the 2g if they're cheaper

It's only the 8Gb 3g version that is identical to the 8Gb 2g version.

The 3g 32gb and 64gb versions are the ones with new, faster cpus and different broadcom wifi chips (wireless n capable and fm)

Nice one, you have just forced me to officially start my xmas shopping !! Ho ho ho.

Good price, thanks

For £10 more id just get the newer one.

Its not really fair to compare the price of a refurb one tough. That said, we have bought refurb from Apple before and apart from it coming n a plain brown box, you wouldn't know it was a refurb,

But, if you take quidco etc into account, there isn't much difference in price anyway

"itouch"

Which is exactly the same as this one.

Apple have really confused people with this. Only the new 32 and 64 models have changed, i.e. more ram 256Mb, better graphics and faster processor.

Not true. The new one comes with the OS 3.0 update, and bluetooth at the very least.

Please people don't be fooled by apple's gimmick marketing. The new so called 8gb ipod touch is exactly the same as the old 8gb 2 gen ipod touch the only difference is new 8gb touch comes with 3.1 os and the old 8gb doesn't. Spend 2.99 on the OS for the old 8gb touch and you have the new 8gb touch and you save yourself some money. Both have bluetooth.

Voted hot.

hot!!

is tesco doing 4 points per £1 spend on everything at tesco or something or do i need to enter a promotional code to get 4x points as its only showing 260 points on the checkout.

Original Poster

Tesco now do 2 points for a £1 but when you swap the points, if you do so for deals with third parties, they are worth 4x. If you have used the voucher - the points would be 260 (when exchanged for 4x deals it would be worth £10.40). I will update the opening post as I put 270 points for the £135 spend instead of the amount with the £5 discount.

I think the OP has assumed that you will get 260 points, but you will convert this to vouchers worth 4 times the value when you redeem the points

My 2nd gen touch doesn't have bluetooth :?

All 2nd Gen Touch have bluetooth. However, you need to upgrade to operating system 3.0 to use it !

I have 3.1! :?

Well I'll be...

Just gone into the settings and there it is!

Good thing you found it i thought they may have left out the bluetooth in the factory on your ipod.

Notice also they are giving a free case with each ipod touch, just add a case to your basket and its price is deducted at checkout.

Well, OK, but it's exactly the same hardware, including bluetooth, which is activated by upgrading to OS 3.0. Not sure what you mean by 'the very least' as there is nothing else.

Duplicate post

I feel your pain!

Aren't Apple fantastic. They cripple their own technology with firmware for a full year and then charge you to enable it. I don't own any Apple products and until they change the way they treat their customers, I won't do.

Take a Tesco Direct catalogue through a checkout and get a further £5 off, as they're giving you a voucher for doing just this!

You'll be pleased to hear that the new iPod Touch has the chips for the faster N wifi and FM radio - neither of which are utilised.
There is also a space built into the circuit board to accommodate the same camera that the new Nanos have.

I suppose they have to keep some features back to tempt people to upgrade each year.

Currys currently have an offer of 75% off all iPod cases.

Yesterday I bought 2, a Garmin branded sports case and a twin pack of silicon protective covers, which should have been £20 each, but I got them for £4.89 each.

Well worth a fiver to protect your new iPod ... especially the sports one for the gym.

No, I don't have a link. The Edinburgh stores have the catalogues piled up just inside the doors, with a big advert telling you about this. Just scan at checkout.

The new 8GB touch is £139 at Currys if you use TOUCH10 code at checkout, reserve and collect or free delivery. I know it's not as good as this deal but this one is expired.
