Initially, when the iTunes gift card was being designed, it was meant to give people the gift of music. To get the card you have to buy it from apple and give it to someone that you love. Just like any other card, the card features a sequence of numbers and letters. To redeem it you have to insert the colors to your apple account and purchase the product you are interested in.
As mentioned, the card was meant to help you enjoy your favorite music but with the coming of the App store, there are many things you can buy from the store. In addition to listening to music, you can also watch videos, download apps, games, movies, books, TV series, and many other things.
Ways of getting the card
The obvious way of getting the card is buying it from apple. There are many cards going at different prices and all you need to do is choose the one that you want. You can also get the card from your favorite stores. For example, eBay, PayPal, and other companies have offered the cards before as a way of appreciating their customers. You can also get the card from taking surveys. Survey companies will ask you to answer a number of questions after which you are given the card that you can use to purchase any of your favorite products.
Tips to consider when using the gift card
If you are buying the card from apple, ensure that you go for the discounted one. This is to spend less while buying many items. There are some third parties that will try selling you or giving you the card codes. While some of the third parties are reputable, there are others that will give you codes that will harm your gadget. To avoid damage to your device you should be cautious when interacting with these sites.
If you are like me, you are out there looking for ways on how to make the most of your card. When making the purchase, always go for products with offers. You should also be on the lookout for free items. These can be movies, music, games or anything else. When you are at the App store, first download the free products.
When making the purchase, always read the fine print. You should note that there is a difference between an iTunes gift card and an Apple store gift card. The iTunes gift card will allow you to play songs, movies, apps and other things but an Apple store gift card will allow you to only buy phones, Apple computers, and other items from your regular brick and mortar apple stores. This means that buying the wrong card would result in an unpleasant experience. If buying for a friend, you can ask them what they would like to buy.
You should note that some of the cards come with an expiry date. If you don’t exhaust the amount of credit in the card before the expiry date, the credit will literary evaporate.
