    I always order "Do The (Red) Thing" iTunes Gift Certificates, because it supports the "Product Red" movement. Unfortunately, today I do not see them anymore on the Apple Store online.... Have they been discontinued? This would really be a shame.

    (Yes, I've also bought a couple of the Product Red iPods over the years too.)

    The reason I like the Product Red gift cards is that a portion of the money goes to the Product Red movement, without raising the price of the cards.

    I found a picture of these cards on Google, even though I can't find them on the Apple Store today:

    Update: Just called my local Apple Store

    I just called the Keystone Apple Store in Indianapolis (Indiana, USA), and they were totally clueless about these cards; they had never heard of them.

    I think that they were only sold on the Apple Store online..... I don't remember them being sold in the brick-and-mortar Apple stores.

    I still have several of them around my house (used, of course), so I know that I'm not going crazy here! :)

    Anybody know the status of these things?

    Red Card

    It's an outrage that they make things like this so difficult to find and so badly advertised - Just to make even more money.

    It seems as with many TNCs nowadays; the expense of human lives comes second to profit and greed :mad:
