    Bought a MBP about 3 days ago and received the $100 student gift card. Does anybody know whether or not I can use this to purchase the $99/yr developer program?

    Thanks

    i'm pretty sure no. iTunes, App Store, and iBookStores only

    edit: i just check the dev website and it only asks for a credit card. no option for anything else

    Okay, thank you for letting me know :)

    Guess I will be buying xCode from the App Store for now until I feel I have learned everything there is to code and then I can purchase the dev program.

    you don't have to buy xcode from the app store. you can download version 3.2.6 of it for free with a free developer account. i don't understand why they're charging for it now.

    Ya I saw that they are giving the 3.2.6 for free but I figured 4 is only 5 bucks plus with the $100 student gift card - it's really free for me. Most of the training vids I use use 4 so it makes sense to use that only.
    They would probably give it for free once xcode 5 comes out.

    Ya I have that thing against apps too. I do not mind paying $7 for a venti coffee from Starbucks but I hesitate even paying $1 for an app. It seems unfair and I bet alot of people would reply saying dude it's a buck but there is some psychological thing behind it.
