    Hello!

    I would like to buy an iTunes gift card. I found in ebay a $50 for a price of $29?

    Is there any problem with it? How can sell it for a price almost 50% less the original price?

    Best wishes!

    These are all over ebay. They could be either bought w/ a stolen CC...or maybe got it as a gift, so they just want the $$ for it. Selling it for less ensures somebody will buy it...and fast.
    Nobody really knows for sure but Im not going to complain. :D

    Very possible it could be stolen credit card numbers. Also could be someone who was given a card and does not use iTunes and/or needs cash instead of music. Or like me, I can get iTunes credit through American Express Rewards and I guess I could sell the code that AMEX emails me for cash. I don't sell it, I like "free" music too much.

    Regardless, as long as you buy with PayPal you are insured. So if something goes wrong, contact the seller and PP.

    I take a look from time to time to see what I can find on Ebay but I'm never comfortable enough with any of the good deals to pull the trigger. Too often are they sellers with 0 or 1 feedback and have only been a member for a week or so. And what's with the Buy It Now sales where the price is greater than the face value of the gift card.

    I see these $200 cards for $130-$140, if only I could find a $25 for $15 or something similar I might give it a shot.

    The gift cards work fine when purchased from ebay (discounted prices). People say you can redeem the credits normaly!

    But...I am afraid of they were bought with stolen credit card, per example, Apple could block the account and credits.

    Is it possible?

    If they could it would be a very long process and you'd prob be bored of the songs by then..Like everyone else said just pay by paypal :)
