I am still updating my Google spreadsheet that tracks advertised MP3 player prices especially in the U.S. Sunday newspaper advertising inserts.
My main reason for doing this is that I'm curious if there could be trend related to MB/price ratios and the possibility of more podcast listeners because prices get down into the commodity level.
This past weekend (one week before Christmas) didn't seem to hold any major price changes that could be considered a trend. Some things I did note:
- Best Buy had some $10-30 gift cards available for some player purchases, but no major price breaks on Apple iPods, Zune, SanDisk, or Insignia players.
- Staples had a pretty good price for the SanDisk Sansa e280 and Creative Zen Vision:M 30GB
