Just noticed that BestBuy Canada has the Apple 512MB iPod Shuffle for $99 this week.
Best Buy Canada Web Store: Portable Electronics: MP3 Players: Apple 512MB iPod Shuffle
It’s listed as a “price drop” so I’m not sure if that is a sale price or a permanent drop in price. I’m guessing it’s permanent.
My guess though is this means the 512MB iPod Shuffle might be nearing the end of it’s life. BestBuy often carries items that are near the end of their life cycle. The other possibility is the 512MB shuffle isn’t selling as well anymore and Apple is just trying to move inventory. BestBuy probably got a really good deal on these iPod Shuffles.
So if you haven’t already picked up an iPod Shuffle, maybe now is the time.
Update: Well, apparently a “price drop” isn’t permanent. The price of the Apple 512MB iPod Shuffle has gone back up to the regular $129 now.
