I recently purchased a refurbished 16gb iPad 2 from Amazon for $349 which included free shipping. I have been tracking it and as of this morning here is the progress: http://www.fedex.com/Tracking?actio...y_code=us&initial=x&tracknumbers=497394766822 My question is simple---how can FedEx make any money on this shipment? I know that "free shipping" is not really free but how can Apple or FedEx offer free international shipping and still make money? I guess the real question is just how much are the iPad's and other similar products marked up. Apple lowered the prices on their current iPads by $100 when they introduced their newest iPad and the one I got was refurbished, which means I saved an additional $50, yet I know they are still making money.
