So I bought an iPod. The most bitchin' MP3 player on the planet, accept no substitute. There's been some reports of failures 3 to 6 months past their 90-day warranty, and Apple's been happy to replace them for the low, low price of $250. Ummm, no. Nobody pays $300-$500 for a piece of hardware that lasts six months.

But, when you pay that much, an extra $30 shouldn't be a big deal. For that low price, CompUSA will sell you a replacement guarantee (SKU is 277449,) regardless of where you bought your iPod. Bring in the (working) iPod and your original sales receipt. The deal is, if the unit fails for any reason within two years, they'll replace it once. (At that time, you'll want to buy another guarantee, in case it fails again.)

Apple does not sell AppleCare coverage on iPods. In response to customer complaints, they have retroactively extended their warranty to one year from purchase, but just in case that's still not enough... I still recommend the CompUSA plan anyways.,
