    Fill your Boots!

    Feel free to add to this when you see any offers. Usually Debenham's do a 20% off around this time of year, but today you can buy the £25 iTunes gift card at Boots for £20. Been to 2 or 3 stores and supplies are running low

    Morrison's are currently doing a 2 x £25 for £40 offer too. (20% discount ain't bad!)

    And you get a penny a litre off fuel for each £10 spent, which depending on the size of your fuel tank could be up to another 10% discount.

    My iTunes spending for the next few months is now paid for, and I've got some bonus money to spend.

    Tesco were doing a £25 voucher for £12.50 in clubcard vouchers a week or two ago. Not sure if there are any left though?

    I use Rapid Fire Bargains - the discount is almost always better than the special offers you find elsewhere, and just getting the code via emails means you don't waste piles of plastic. It looks like a scam, but it isn't - I've spent over £200 there with no problems at all.

    Rapid Fire is my go to when Tesco isn't running one of its 50% offers on clubcard vouchers. I stocked up last year so renewing my Tomtom Live traffic subscription only cost me £13.50 for a year.

    Pity we can't use our iTunes accounts to pay for hardware from the Applestore.

    It seems to me that the Tesco deal has run out

    Asda online store £5 off a £25 gift card. It shows as £25 but when you add it to your basket it decucts £5.

    I will be in London in a few weeks and am hoping to pick up about 200-300 Pounds worth of iTunes cards before flying back.

    Are there any high-street retailers with discount iTunes cards at present?

    Are you going to be able to use them in your country though?

    I used to actually buy just the codes on ebay.co.uk and have them sent to me by email but recently something happened and they are no longer being sold.

    But since I'll be in the UK briefly in February I'd like to stock up on iTunes cards, preferably getting them somewhere at a discount and not face value.

    HMV is in administration. Expect deep discounts on most products at some point.

    So like a clearance sale at some point?

    I still have a few weeks left before I fly in so I'm hoping to find some sort of deal on the high street...

    Many thanks, will give it a look. :)

    Any idea why online stores selling legitimate itunes codes have been taken down recently?

    Some time has gone by, has anyone seen any itunes deals on the high street by any chance?

    I'm flying out in under a week and anything off the face value would be great. I take it the ones at Heathrow sell at full-price?

    I hear Boots has £25 cards for £20, though I haven't confirmed it myself.

    Excellent, is it just the 25 card for 20 or are there deals on iTunes cards of other value?

    Do you also get Boots points for buying these cards? :)
