The most expensive iPod ever

November 11, 2007 – 7:10 pm

iPod TouchI have an iPod Touch.  Before family or friends or co-workers start to give me a hard time about it because I vowed not to buy one, I want to tell you that I didn’t buy it.  Well, I didn’t buy it directly.  Let me tell you about the iPod Touch that cost me about $40,900 and you will see that there are better ways to get an iPod Touch.

Thank you.  Actually, ThankYou.  It’s not just an expression of gratitude, it’s also a Citi (as in Citi credit card) network which gets away with not giving you cash back, but instead rewards you with points which usually translate into a $1 for 1 point system (with some expections like when using Expedia).

The ThankYou network allows you to use your “earned” points in order to buy something from their semi-extensive selection of items, including electronics, gift certificates, travel discounts, and much more.  Alright, now before you think that I’m trying to review the ThankYou network, I’m not (really, they didn’t pay for it so I’m not going to talk about it anymore).

Well, I accumulated more than enough to get the iPod Touch which was just a puny 40,900 points.  Yes, that’s right, 40,900 points.  See the picture below while taking a breather from this post.

iPod Touch $40,000

So with the different available items that I could have purchased, why did I choose the iPod Touch?  This gives me the opportunity to have an iPod (I have the Zune and really enjoy it).  It also gives me an iPod that might cost more than anybody else, which isn’t something I’m as proud of as just find entertaining.

True that there are current credit cards that give a percentage back, and that percentage back is usually between 1%-5%, depending on certain conditions and factors.  And yes, that would probably be a better idea that what I did.  I have since changed my credit card from Citi to Washington Mutual’s credit card (plus I get the 4.75% interest rate on my money). But who else can brag that they got an iPod for $40,900? 

(watch for a future post regarding the difficulties of get the world’s most expensive iPod to work)

  14. Well I found this to be an interesting read, despite the negative comments some people have left. That credit card has to be one of the worst ones around I would think, good to see you have since changed to another card + scheme.
