Though we may look high and low, the conclusions of the most frugal have most often been made that the iPod is a device for only those lucky few who have the financial resources to afford one. But alas, I tell even the most skeptical of all my frugal aficionados that the people who strive to achieve the dwindling hope of acquisition of the iPod for free that it is possible, and can even be simple.
So just how do you get a free iPod?
There are several intriguing methods that one must use in order to make this dream possible. Sometimes they are straight forward and other times they sink to levels that are lower than whale fecal matter at the bottom of the Pacific. Inevitably, the results of your hunt will be fulfilled, no matter what course of action you decide upon to get a free iPod.

The Craigslist Cesspool of free iPods
Craigslist in all of its wonder is completely full of shams and scams trying to lure people to the promise of freebies on numerous categories. The site in and of itself is an incredibly valuable resource, but it must be used without you pursuing ads, but rather people pursuing you. Basically, you will need to leave ads asking people if you can have for free, barter, or you may be able to provide a specific service or task for them. Often, people in your locality will have an obsolete or unused iPod that they will be happy to let you have. These iPods will often still be functioning, but will often have either cosmetic damage or missing/broken parts. The great news is that anybody who can acquire more than one free iPod will have the ability to salvage the working components and build fully functioning devices. Though not exactly free, you may have obsoleted and “worthless” items lying around just begging to be bartered for an iPod which several lurkers on Craigslist would be happy to swap you for.
