    I got an iTunes giftcard over the holidays and I am looking to get a touch for myself.

    Am I better off buying from Amazon where Touches are 10% off, and using my gift card for the upgrade? Is it even possible to pay for the upgrade with a giftcard? Or are itunes giftcards only usable on downloading music/movies, etc..?

    If anyone knows, that'd be great, thanks!

    Yes you can use a gift card to buy the upgrade. The apgrade actually cost around $21.35 if you include tax

    I did it with the money from a giftcard and then I mysteriously got my money back while being able to keep my software upgrade.:)

    Instantly? Without asking Apple?

    its been said that many people have been getting credited back the twenty dollars.

    Perhaps Apple is rethinking the upgrade fee.

    In all reality I know it's only $20, but this would be an awesome thing if Apple took back the Upgrade fee. Something I'm worried about is that it's going to be an every month 20$ and by the time you know it you've spent another 399$ just buying upgrades.

    Also, if i were to wait out this upgrade do you think I would receive both upgrades at the next one or would i have to pay $40?

    Yeah.
    Im waiting.
    Im jailbroken, and have all the apps, but would feel more secure if it was an Apple-certified firmware. If they take away the fee, Id update, but if they dont, no biggie.
