Amazon today is offering $10 in Amazon credit when you spend $100 or more on the Apple Gift Card. This card is digital and will be delivered to you via email, and the offer will automatically be applied at the checkout screen.

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.

Amazon's wording on the sale is somewhat confusing, so if you don't see the sale automatically applied at checkout, you can use the code APPLEOCT at the checkout screen to get the deal. For most shoppers, however, the deal should apply automatically.

It's been just over a year since we last tracked deals on iTunes gift cards, because Apple phased those out in favor of the new Apple Gift Card. This makes Amazon's sale today of particular note, since you won't find a straight cash discount on these cards again, but can at least get credit added to your Amazon account.



All of the Apple Gift Cards on this page are supported under the new promotion, as long as you customize one to be worth $100 or more. The gift cards are sold by ACI Gift Cards, LLC, which is owned by Amazon and was related to iTunes gift card discounts in the past.

If you're on the hunt for more discounts, be sure to visit our Apple Deals roundup where we recap the best Apple-related bargains of the past week.

Thanks for the tip. I miss the days of 20-25% discounts, but they aren't coming back. I figured I might as well take the free $10 and stack it with the Discover It 5% cash back at Amazon this quarter. I used the affiliate link, so I guess everyone's losing money on this deal except for me and MacRumors. ?

I’ll be doing the exact same. My question is - can you use the code more than once?

Anyone have any luck with this? I purchased a $100 apple gift card, and the title of the gift card before checking out included "Get $10 Amazon promotional credit..." (see attached screenshot). During checkout though I didn't see anything, and haven't received anything in my email beyond the $100 apple gift card.

While not the same as the discount, Target had $20 gift card bonuses paired with $100 Apple ones last Black Friday week. So hopefully occasionally there’s something like those days…

Same here. I'm waiting to see if the Amazon card comes. Ordered the Apple card maybe 30 min ago; it arrived immediately and applied no problem.

It's not an Amazon card, it is a credit that is made available to you on your Amazon account. You'll see it on your account page or when you make your next purchase on Amazon, it will be available to use (or will be automatically applied).

I put in the code during checkout even though I don't think I had to, but when it said it applied, it also said the credit would show up on my account in 3 days. That has been pretty standard for Amazon credits like this.

I bought a bunch of these last fall. Hope they offer it again. Agree the promotions are fewer and further between, but when one happens, it’s worth stocking up since the credits can now be used to buy hardware/accessories from Apple instead of just iTunes credit.

I guess I didn't get my credit the first time. I went back and used the code APPLEOCT and it told me I qualified for the $10 credit. Two gift cards for me, doodley-dee.

Anyone have experience buying gift cards from CardCookie? They are one of the very few resellers with a 5% off Apple cards.

Thanks MacRumors! I stacked this with my 5% back on the Amazon Card and redeemed another $25 in points. Worked out well ^_^. Now to continue waiting for the new larger iMac....

Target is currently running the same $10 deal as Amazon except you get a Target Giftcard instead of it being Amazon credit.

Also, glad to get an extra $10 to put towards my maxed out 2021 M1X Macbook Pro that will probably cost $5k. :D

Yes it won’t happen unless you enter the code APPLEOCT during checkout.
