If you're looking to start stocking up on iTunes gift cards for the holidays, PayPal's Digital Gifts storefront on eBay today has the $100 iTunes gift card at $85 for customers in the United States. You'll need to be logged into a PayPal account, and once you complete the purchase the digital gift card will be emailed to you with a code to add the credit to your iTunes account.


Discounts on iTunes gift cards are getting more frequent as holiday shopping nears, with most deals marking $50 and $100 cards off by 15 percent. As Black Friday gets closer, you can expect larger discounts -- of around 20 percent off -- to begin popping up at various retailers. We'll be sure to notify you when these holiday deals begin happening; you can also keep an eye on our Black Friday Roundup and Deals Roundup for even more of the latest Thanksgiving and Christmas sales.

These iTunes discounted promos are a dime a dozen.

Wake me up when someone offers a (legit) promo where I can buy a $100 Apple Retail Store gift card for a mere cost of $85. Hell, I'd buy a boatload of those.

Nice. I'm switching my Netflix subscription to iTunes billing and will use these discounted gift cards to effectively undo their recent price increase. :p
Paying for monthly services like Netflix is what makes these deals a no-brainer. I'm fairly certain I got in on some that were close to 20% off last holiday shopping spree season. Not sure why Macrumors would choose this deal to promote when these are fairly common.

How exactly can you pay for your Netflix subscription with iTunes billing? I would very much like to do this as well, but I'm a bit confused by this.

In short, I cancelled my service that was paid via credit card. After the current month expired, my account still existed (you don't lose your profile, viewing history, etc.) and I just needed to decide what payment method I wanted to use to renew it. Here's where you sign into the Netflix app on an Apple TV or iOS device and renew your Netflix account through that and choose iTunes as your payment method.

So, basically, don't bite on this deal because better ones will soon be available.

Not that good of a deal considering it's only 15% and there will be better deals on Black Friday which is just around the corner.

The 20% deals seem to be becoming quite rare though. I haven't seen many this year, and usually they involve buying physical gift cards. These Paypal offers are fast, hassle-free and reliable, so I think it's still a good deal.

Is anyone else having trouble buying these? I login in to my PayPal account during checkout, but then an alert comes up at the top saying:

"Sorry, this payment option isn't available. Here are your options: Contact PayPal customer service to resolve this issue."

These are about as low as you can expect. They are just generic discounts for iTunes. I've been buying these for years.

Save a few bucks. I Like them :)

Unfortunately you can only buy if you have a US Paypal account, that is dumb.
I uses the US App Store even though I am based in Singapore. And thus my Paypal account isn't SG based.
