Apple is once again offering a 10 percent bonus when adding funds to your Apple ID account through April 3 in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, and select other countries.

The bonus can be applied once on up to $200 or EUR300 in Apple ID funds, which can be used towards purchases on the App Store, iTunes Store, Apple Books Store, an Apple Music or iCloud storage subscription, and so forth. If you add $100 to your account, for example, you will receive $110 during this promotion.


To add funds directly to your Apple ID, go to Settings > Your Name > iTunes & App Store and tap your Apple ID > View Apple ID. Sign in if necessary, tap "Add Funds to Apple ID," tap the amount that you want to add, and confirm your selection.

I'm considering doing this and getting the Affinity software I don't have, which is half price at the moment. Very polished art tools. £50 to get Photo and Publisher, with enough left over for a movie or two.

Been awhile since there have been discounted gift cards anywhere, worried they may have finally discontinued those deals - might have to do this.

Wow...Apple's greed has no limit. In these tough times, encouraging and enticing people to pile more money to their Apple ID account which will therefore be spent on apple products/services. Of course Apple die hard fans will applaud Apple for giving a 10% bonus. Tim has to pay for the masks which he is giving in the Corona fight. The giving of masks or the funds to buy masks is already giving Apple a tax break and now he has to double down by getting cash from Apple ID holders and through the sudden 10% increase on build to order MacBook Airs.

Of all the companies in the world, Apple is pretty much at the top of the list when it comes to not needing your cash in advance.

That's all this is - booking sales revenue to try and make up for tanking device sales. They have about $100 Billion in cash reserves at any given time. Alphabet (Google) has about the same, maybe a bit more.

They don't need your money, and shouldn't be begging you for it with meager 10% discounts.

ok, no one is making you pile anything. those who were running low on their apple id account, can get a discount - why don't you try to look at it that way?

Funny... I see this as a savings to me because I give Apple a chunk of change for movies, iCloud storage, and other things. I'm actually happy Apple is giving me the opportunity to save money.

The hatred and backlash against Apple for this is extremely off-putting to me. I imagine the same people would bash Apple if they hadn't offered to save people $ by not doing this. People just love to be outraged at everything and anything these days.

Exactly.

Nope. Buy a stock MBA today and it's $999.99. Just like it was yesterday. Want to bump up the SSD as a build to order option? That $200 bump will cost you $20 more today than it did yesterday, assuming if you live in a country with a falling currency. That $20 extra charge works out to be a 2% increasing on the whole computer.

Can't afford the extra 2%. Or feel Apple should shoulder your country's falling currency? No worries. Buy a Windows machine and move forward.

10% bonus + 3% cashback :)

Curious if anyone knows if any subscriptions fees are removed from your AppleID funds automatically before stored CC?

Nevermind, found the answer. In case anyone else was wondering, under Payments & Shipping it states that Apple ID balance is used for each purchase first.

Yes and I wish we had a way to set the payment source per purchase. I want all my subscripitons to come out of my Apple Card and then save my iTunes balance for movies\books etc. I’ve been asking for years. For now I just have to load the pass with what I need each week\month and grumble on.

Not available in Sweden? :-(

Our family has a 2Tb iCloud plan, as well as watching Netflix every month. There's 2376 SEK we spend every year just like that. But it looks like we can't get a 10% discount on that.

The most you can add is $200, and you can only do it once. It's a cash grab by Apple to boost their revenue numbers.

If they were being altruistic, they'd let you do it more than once over the next month in smaller dollar values. You aren't gonna get 10% off a device purchase with this.

At the very most you get to save $20 by laying out $200 of your money today.
