    Are you sure? Got my Apple Store Card and I want to get an iTunes card instead but the site says otherwise. Not sure how it works at the store.

    If not, I'm just going to have to go to ebay. There is absolutely nothing in the store I would want to buy.

    This promotion is mostly aimed for college kids. The people that really don't care for the latest and greatest phones or processors.

    I think this is very good for students who are usually short on cash as it is then giving away an ipod which most people have or use their phones as.

    The fun with the iPod promotion was that you'd simply sell it for close to retail - say, $179 vs. retail of $199, with no tax.

    You could do the same with the discontinued free printer promo. Combine the two with a little time and you could reduce the effective price of a Mac fairly substantially.

    Personally found the £70 iTunes gift card I got with my Air much more useful.

    As per the previous post, there's not much I want from the actual store, but personally apps would be more useful. Pity you can't trade them in.

    Anyone else having issues with the coupon not being accepted on the online store? I want to buy a magic mouse and its saying that the gift card pin is invalid when I've only copied and pasted it from the email.

    No way, Apple again!

    Ok, that must be destiny but Apple made me angry again.. Instead I should be happy for the gift card!

    Why the hell they did this "For those purchasing through authorized campus stores, Apple is offering the traditional iTunes/App/iBooks Store gift card rather than an Apple retail/online store gift card."?

    Of course I didn't know... And I really wanted to buy a nice extralight cover for my new MacBook Air... Instead, I have 100 $ of apps.

    Do you think somebody would like to exchange it?

    Thanks
    Marina
