Apple today sent out emails letting App Store and iTunes users know about a new promotion that offers a 10 percent bonus when adding funds to an Apple ID account.

When you add money directly to your Apple ID from a credit or debit card for making App Store, iTunes, and iCloud purchases, Apple is adding bonus credit.


Apple says the offer is valid on amounts ranging from $1.00 to $200, so customers who add the maximum $200 in funds to their Apple IDs will receive a total of $220 with the bonus ($20 free).

Funds can be added to your Apple ID account by opening up the Settings app, tapping on your account name, selecting the iTunes and App Store option, choosing your Apple ID, and then selecting "Add Funds to Apple ID."


From there, you can see the promotional bonuses available and choose the amount of money you want to add to your account. You can also get to these options in the iTunes Store by tapping on your Apple ID or in the App Store by scrolling to the bottom (or tapping your profile picture) and selecting the Add Funds option. To use this feature, you will need to have a valid payment method added to your Apple ID account.

The promotion will be available from March 10 through March 14 in the United States, and it is also available in other countries as well, such as Germany, where Apple is offering a 15 percent bonus. No bonus funds are available in the UK, Australia, or Canada, however.

No error, it's a total of $220 with the $20 added.
Even though I understood what you meant, I think he's criticizing the sentence's structure.
...so customers who add the maximum $200 total to their Apple IDs can get a total of $220 from Apple.
As written, the sentence basically states: add your $200 and Apple will add $220. In actuality the customer gets a total of $20 from Apple. The original $200 is already theirs.

I updated the wording, sorry if it was unclear.

You can also get to it by opening App Store app → Updates button → click your profile pic upper right → Add Funds to Apple ID

Not worth it when iTunes cards are frequently available for 15-20% off.

Not in New Zealand they are not. iTunes cards have not been discounted for probably 4+ years.
We used to buy them for Xmas stocking fillers, but don't bother now.

Which other countries?

Not in New Zealand. Discounted gift cars have not been available for 4+ years.

Good to see Apple does not discriminate based on nationality ... oh wait, yes they do .
