• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

I remember a few years ago they had this special running...do you think they would ever do it again given the popularity of both products? I wish they would but I wouldn't hold my breath...opinions?

I thought it was a cool sales ploy. Don't know if they'll ever do it again though....

They've done that for at least two years in a row. In 2005, it was a free 4GB mini, or $179 rebate towards a more expensive iPod (that's how I got my 20GB color for $90 - plus ed. discount). Last year, it was a low-end nano or $149. This year, it should be the same, allowing a free 2GB nano.

I don't believe the last promotion was limited to only students. Of course the educational discount part of it that LukeA mentioned would be limited to university students, faculty staff and K-12 faculty and staff.

The free iPod with Mac purchase, though, that was open to the general public that was simply run during the back to school time.

so could my sister buy herself a laptop(black macbook) with the discount and give it to me as "a gift" or is that illegal...(she will never buy a mac for university/ she already has a windows one) is that allowed?

She would have to buy the iPod from Apple herself (i.e. under her name). She could then sell/give the iPod to you.
