It never hurts to get a nifty discount.
That and it’s nice to build a nice cache of iTunes gift cards to use all year round, especially if they’re available at a discount. Discounted iTunes gift cards are one of the only ways to save on apps, music, movies and even your Apple Music subscription.
A couple vendors are selling discounted iTunes gift cards this holiday season. Currently, the best deal of the bunch is a $100 iTunes gift card for $80 via PayPal Digital Gifts on eBay. The gift cards arrive via email within a few hours of purchase, but the limited time offer is only available in the United States.
The best deal (for U.S. readers) appears to be from PayPal Digital Gifts on eBay, which is offering a $100 iTunes gift card for $80 (or 20% off) with no apparent limit (Jason bought four of these bad boys). The auction listing notes that “limited quantities” are available and the discounted cards sold out in a few days last year.
Staples is offering a 20 percent discount on $25, $50, and $100 iTunes gift cards. (limit 3, expires December 5, 2015)
Best Buy is offering a “buy one, get a second at 20% off deal” on iTunes gift cards (for an effective discount of only 10%). You must add two eligible cards to your shopping cart for the discount to appear.
We’ve received reports about $100 of iTunes gift cards for only $75 from Rakuten.com (via SlickDeals.com), which sounds like a better deal until you realize that:
1. You must pay with Visa.
2. There’s a limit of one $100 card per customer.
3. They charge sales tax (at least in California).
Using Rakuten, the total for a $100 iTunes gift card comes to $83.75 (after tax), which is more than the eBay/PayPal deal above.
