Does it matter where I buy my music from if I want to play it on my Clip Zip and iPad?

Q: I recently purchased a SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip that came with Rhapsody software and an iPad-2 that of course promotes i-Tunes. And I have coupons for dollars off tunes from emusic. If I want to play music on the Clip Zip and the i-Pad, does it matter where I buy the music? I use an XP PC with i-Tunes and Windows Media Player if that makes a choice easier (or harder) to use. Please advise; I’m confused.
