    PayPal's Digital Gifts eBay storefront today has $50 App Store and iTunes gift cards for $42.50, a savings of 15 percent. As usual with PayPal's card sales on eBay, you'll need a PayPal account to complete the transaction, and the iTunes credit will only be valid on purchases made in the United States. Although the $100 card isn't directly on sale, you can add two $50 cards to your cart today to get $100 worth of iTunes credit for $85 -- which has been the typical sale amount over the past few weeks.

    Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

    Once you place the order, PayPal will send a code to your email inbox within a few hours, although it can take up to 24 hours. Visit PayPal on eBay for more information and to pick up one of the iTunes cards before the limited-time offer expires.

    42.50 bucks for $50 one, that is a steal! Woo-hoo, 5 more months of Apple Music. :)

    Yep, you can pay for an Apple Music subscription with these cards. You just need to have your Apple Music subscription's payment method set to iTunes, and during your next billing period the monthly payment will be taken from your iTunes credit.

    Paypal won't let me purchase this, haha. When I called Paypal's customer service they told me that their system won't let people buy from this seller. Which makes no sense because over 5,000 sold and they only accept paypal. Not a big deal but if you're having this problem this is what they told me.

    It's substantially cheaper if you switch to the yearly plan - 12 months for the price of 10.

    Yes, I was able to get a $100 for $85 gift card during the holidays and used it to pay for a 1 year Apple Music Sub. So you can get 2 of these $50/$42.50 to do the same. Hooray for deals!

    That's weird, I just bought one and it went right through and I noticed the name of the seller was paypal_digital_gifts and they have over 433k of feedback.
    I'd call them again.

    As a guess, perhaps the two of you have differing backing methods (debit vs. credit, etc) and PayPal may have different rules for each.

    Very possible, I think I'm more confused about why PayPal told him that over the phone than anything else.

    I'm guessing this was just a customer service human error and she didn't actually know why it wasn't going through. Everything in my paypal has been confirmed etc for a awhile now so I'm not sure why I couldn't make the purchase. It wasn't a big deal so I didn't call again. Good that you guys were able to!:)

    Update on this: I called again today, the customer rep said the same thing. That this seller is recognized as a "high risk" seller and e gifts are a risky thing for paypal's security. She said it has nothing to do with my account and couldn't tell me why 6,000 other people were able to make the purchase and I wasn't. Lol.
