iPod Touch Good Place to Buy Refurbed?

My daughter has somehow managed to lose her iPod touch, we've pretty much turned the house upside down. Normally i'd say tough sh!t you lost it, your problem but wifey *thinks* she may have put it somewhere for safe keeping before we went on holiday (we've not seen it since we got back).

 

It's now starting to cause issues, when she's allowed some time to play after her homework she heads for sons xbox then arguments ensue.

 

So I was thinking about trying to pick up a refurbed one from somewhere, however, like all Apple products they retain their value stupidly well so they're not massively cheap and I don't want to pay a load for a duffed up one.

 

Does anyone know a reputable place that sells refurbed iPod Touches for not crazy money. Or do I just bite the bullet and buy her new one (might hold off for her birthday next month in that case).

Was in the same predicament with daughter's Nintendo DS a couple years ago although that was nicked after bag was dropped in our front garden.

In the end I just bought her a new one for her bday...although now she has an ipod i doubt she would even know if i flogged it!

 

tough call - as said above the refub store products seem to be excellent so no real issue with getting a new one or getting a refurb I would say if you save abit.

I take it you can't stretch the wait to End-Nov for the Black Friday sales?

Guess I could take a look at somewhere like CEX? Seems a touch harsh getting it for her birthday particularly as Mrs H is umming and aahing and can't remember if she did put it somewhere. The other thing is we had builders in whilst we were away, used them for years with no problems but know he had his nephew with him helping out, just gives me that nagging feeling....

I've not got an old iPhone knocking around, so no :roflmao:

 

But thanks for the suggestion +++

 

Looks like I can get an 8gb White 4th Gen iPod Touch in reasonable nick from CEX for £80 so might go down that route. To be honest she didn't have masses on there so won't miss the 16 -> 8gb adjustment. As long as she's got her favourite games and music from Jessie J, Katy Perry et al she won't notice the difference.

think long term tho' StooH, no point buying cheap to end up buying twice ..... eldest daughter is now 13 and she has so many photos and a lot more music on her iphone than she did 3 years ago when she first had it, next upgrade will have to have bigger memory.

 

Don't forget JL do another years warranty to Apple, maybe get family (uncle's, GP's etc) to put towards a new one (if you buy from Apple you can get engraved for free too) plus maybe get her a speaker docking station?

Good suggestions, she's already got a docking station but I could ask her if she wants a new upgraded iPod for her birthday.

 

My Dad works for the John Lewis group so think he can get 12.5% off electricals, although a fiver more than Amazon does give you the extra year.

 

All food for thought! Only problem with doing that for her birthday is having to wait through 7 more weeks of sibling bitching/fighting/nagging  :unsure:
