Excerpt: I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about getting a new music device, but despite me denying it, I knew it was part of the impulse of why I switched to a different credit card company. Along this venture, the certain company probably thought it more marketable if they included a complimentary gift, such as a spanking Apple ipod nano .
Summary: Although this was a "new" item, it was a replacement item from apple. I was expecting an ipod in the original store packaging, not a replacement item in different packaging. Nothing in the item description from the seller says that it is a replacement item from apple until you open the box with the letter from apple in it stating that it is a replacement item.
