    I am wanting to buy some new music where is the cheapest place to do that? I am not interested in itunes because of all their rules. I want to own the files that I download,

    Thanks!

    Amazon and Walmart. Amazon and Walmart let use gift cards buy music. I am enough reward programs that I have not pay cash for music and years

    You do own the music you buy on iTunes. $1.29 - songs are DRM-free. You are right though - there are some limitations on *some* things on iTunes, but none that have ever impacted me from doing anything or copying them anywhere or using them on multiple devices.

    I get mine at Walmart. They do come with a license, but it is pretty liberal...unlimited devices you can copy, burn to, etc. You can also go to your download acct online if you computer crashes to get them again. Prices start at 94cents

    Here are their transfer rules:

    I've bought entire albums for $5.99 or less on amazon...way cheaper than buying by the song if you like the band/group. :goodvibes

    If you already own CDs you can rip them to your computer (I only mention this because a friend on facebook was recently lamenting that she only had 6 songs on her ipod and couldn't imagine how everyone else had thousands because it was just too expensive to keep downloading them....and I found out she did NOT know that she could rip her cds that she already owns and put that music on her ipod).

    amazon is the cheapest.
    Most times they offer albums (popular ones at that) for $5 and the new releases are always under $10. Most songs are .99 or less as well. Way cheaper than Itunes. Did Walmart for awhile but didn't like the selection. Amazon also offers a free song everyday. Sometimes it can be a real find but most of the time its obscure. During Christmas a few months ago they were giving the whole album away for the most popular releases for under $4.

    We are big Disney fans (go figure) and we got tangled when it came out for $2.99

    If that's the Russian music site (used to be allofmp3 I believe) that is questionably legal for downloading in the US, from prior readings I've done.
