If you ever purchase apps, music or books from the iTunes app store or the Mac app store, you might be interested in knowing that oftentimes, you can find discounted deals on iTunes Gift Cards. For instance, right now, Staples is offering an 18% discount on a $50 iTunes card. This year on Black Friday, you could have purchased a $100 iTunes card from eBay for only $75. That’s $25 in free money.
Once you’ve purchased your gift card, you can then add the credits to your account using your AppleID. As far as I know, there isn’t any limit as to how much money in credits you can add.
To redeem your gift card, log in to iTunes with your AppleID, click your AppleID on top of the iTunes screen and then click Redeem. You can either type in the code manually or use your computer’s camera to scan in the code. The credits are automatically added to your account balance.
So how do you find out about these deals? One method is to do a Web search every few days for “iTunes Gift Card Discount” or “iTunes Gift Card Deal”. I typically find gift cards on sale from various retailers at least 4 times a month. If you have a Twitter account, you’ll want to follow @itunescarddeals as they regularly tweet about discount iTunes Gift Card deals.
