Just ordered one from Amazon for $80 bucks. Plus I get another 5 percent off with my card. I’m beginning to like purchasing Apple products on Amazon. lol

How do they make money selling iTunes gift cards for 20% off? Surely Apple isn’t discounting them that much (if at all).

Remember that Apple takes 30% of income from app transactions. They still make money but with smaller margins

Question: Could a person by $1000 worth of cards for $800 and then use the card to purchase a $999 iPad Pro, the savings would be $199 or 20% off, is this possible? And you would have $1.00 left over to buy and App for the Pro?

These cards are for iTunes and the App Store, not for the online Apple Store which sells hardware. So, no, you can't use these cards for something like an iPad Pro.

Thanks for the reply, I had a hunch it was too good to be true.

Unfortunately no. From Apple https://www.apple.com/shop/help/gifting

iTunes Gift Cards
iTunes Gift Cards can be redeemed for songs, albums, audiobooks, videos, and games on the iTunes Store. They cannot be used to buy Apple products. To purchase items outside of the iTunes Store, visit the Apple Store Gift Cardssection of online Help.”

Thanks for the reply, Apple has this all covered to their advantage, darn it!

Keep in mind these can be used to pay for subscriptions like Netflix, iCloud Storage, and so on. So if you have a few subscriptions and thus will eventually spend the money, these discounted cards are like cash back in your pocket.

I am amazed with everything I watch for this deal, not one site has mentioned Dollar General 20% off $25 and $50 iTunes Gift Cards. Last year it was Thanksgiving only. This year it is Thanksgiving and the weekend!

Update: I finally got my US$100 iTunes gift card for $80 at Amazon successfully. Amazon is the only place which doesn't require a US billing address that's matching the credit card at checkout. Amazon is amazing.
