iPod Music Downloads

If you’re like every other owner of an iPod or other mp3 player, you’re looking for sites that offer affordable downloads. And yes, there are many companies out there bidding for your downloading business. However, it’s not always easy to tell whether downloading songs, video, and whatever else it is that you download does not infringe upon copyright laws.

The simplest sites to download from are pay-per-music download sites. These are sites like iTunes; you pay a flat fee for each download. These are simple, direct, and if you don't want any tunes, you pay nothing. The best site we've found that offers pay-per-download is Wal-Mart. In comparison to iTunes, there are better deals like a "Hit 3 Pack" where you get 3 downloads for $2.24. Most songs are 94 cents, but occasionally, Wal-Mart will roll back pricing on select tracks - so stay tuned! Most albums are $9.22, and you can purchase other albums at Wal-Mart famous rollback prices. Check back here for occasional special opportunities to get your favorite albums for even less. Album pricing can vary depending on the number of songs available for download, but in almost all cases, buying an album will be less expensive than buying the individual songs that make up an album. While legalities are not an issue with these sites, iPod (and mp3 player) owners may find pay per download fees too expensive when they want to download several files. USA, LLC
