Free Money…

    Yes I know that sounds like a come-on from some kind of spammers… BUT.

    Target are selling iTunes cards at 20% off.

    25 dollar cards are going for 20 bucks - at least around here - in south west Florida.

    But wait, there’s more!

    Best Buy has all their iTunes cards at 15% off, they had them at 20% off not long ago. Target is the better deal right now.

    Grab some before you download Lion!

    Not on my local Target ad and online it’s still $25 for $25.

    Not quite free money, but they are selling the 4 month old HTC Inspire 4G (AT&T) for $19. That’s an 80% discount. Too bad they aren’t having a sale on the 12 month old iPhone 4. I’ll bet they’d have massive lines even if they discounted it by 50%.

    Not all consumers have an easy time weighing the price/value proposition.  The cost of ownership is the difference between what you pay and the amount you receive on sale.  I paid $200 for my iPhone 4.  I expect to receive $300 (or more) on craigslist when the iPhone 5 comes out.  Oh, wait, I’ve MADE money, helping defray the cost of a new one.

    Meanwhile, the copycats like HTC don’t offer the consumer any price protection because these phones depreciate faster than cars.  This is another untold story with smartphones.

    I dropped by a Verizon store yesterday and overheard a potential customer interested in an iPhone.  The sales clerk was talking the iPhone 4 down (e.g. “it has glass on both sides, so it is not very durable”).  The customer was unswayed and purchased the iPhone.  Smart customer.

    First thing that comes to my mind when I hear southwest Florida I think Everglades. I am guessing Naples though? I will inquire around here, thanks for the heads up.
