Best Buy offers free Zune
Best Buy Canada is currently having an online promotion that gives buyers a free 4GB Microsoft Zune music player for every 16GB Zune purchased. The 16GB Zune is priced at $180 CAD (about $141), with the 4GB Zune thrown in for free is valued at nearly $100. Canadian and US 16GB Zunes have recently been reduced to $180, among price drops to other Zune models.
The offer is valid with online purchases only. Canadian retail chain Future Shop, which is owned by Best Buy, also recently had a promotion on the 8GB Zune, pricing it at $100, or $50 less than its regular price.
Microsoft has dropped the prices and is offering the deals to make the Zune more competitive with its rivals, namely Apple's iPod, and bolster its holiday sale numbers.
