    PayPal on eBay this weekend is offering $100 App Store and iTunes gift cards for $85, marking the latest 15 percent discount on the cards and a good chance for those who have been waiting on a deal to get free iTunes credit. While the sale lasts, anyone with a PayPal account can take advantage of the deal, and you'll receive the code for the iTunes credit via email within a few hours after the purchase.

    Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with eBay. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

    The credit will only be valid on purchases made on the United States App and iTunes stores. PayPal's iTunes gift card sales are limited and typically tend to last for a day or two, so be sure to visit PayPal's Digital Gifts eBay store and place your order before the end of the weekend if you want to stock up on some iTunes credit, or send it as a gift to a friend or family member.

    These iTunes card sales are a great way to get iTunes credit at a cheaper price, which you can then use to rent and buy movies on iTunes, pay for your Apple Music and iCloud subscriptions, purchase a new app, expand your iBooks collection, and much more.

    Coinciding with the new gift card offer, iTunes has some notable discounts on its Movies storefront that might be of interest to horror movie fans getting iTunes credit today. The sale prices include a collection of Modern Horror films for just $4.99 each, including the ones listed below:
    [*]The Cabin in the Woods (4K)
    [*]Don't Breathe
    [*]10 Cloverfield Lane (4K)
    [*]Tucker & Dale vs Evil
    [*]The Witch
    [*]The Conjuring
    [*]28 Days Later
    [*]You're Next
    [*]Sinister
    [*]Green Room
    [*]Wrong Turn
    [*]It Follows
    [*]30 Days of Night The full list of discounted Modern Horror films can be seen on the iTunes Movies storefront. If you're interested in checking out more sales and offers, be sure to visit our Deals Roundup.

    Since when the eBay and PayPal account must also be from the US to enjoy the discount? :-(

    Probably the same reason movies and other media are or aren't available in different countries, or are very different prices -- about a million lawyers got together to make it happen :/

    If you're an Apple customer that is going to spend $100 in a reasonable amount of time, this is a great way to essentially get $15 back, so no reason not to jump on these.

    With my Netflix subscription, iCloud storage subscription and a few other random things, it'll get spent in well under a year.

    They did this in April and I jumped on it, still got about $57 left on it. So, I just jumped on another. Like the previous poster said.. with iCloud and a few other subs I have this saves me a few dollars.

    First time I've ever done this, now wondering why I didn't sooner. It's an incredible discount.

    Nice discount I am always looking out for these. But I never ever could bring myself to buy or rent a movie from the iTunes Store.
    They cost double the amount a physical rental did back in the days. Digital rental should be a tenth of the current price, then I would consider it.
    5€.... do other digital rental platforms have same prices? Beyond me why anyone would pay such amount.

    If anyone has a Chase Freedom credit card, don’t forget to activate your rewards for this quarter (April - June 30th) which includes purchases made through PayPal, via your credit card, for an additional 5% cash back.

    This way you get a total of 20% off $100 :)

    And there's also eBay Bucks. Stacking up those discounts.
    Edit: Nvm, doesn't apply to gift cards.

    Does PayPal ever do deals like this in the UK?

    Sounds like time to renew the annual Apple Music subscription.

    Foreign horror can be a bit graphic / gross for me :oops:

    I remember one being recommended by a friend to watch “The Audition” (Japanese horror) and good lord was it disgusting... :eek::eek::eek:

    A lot of foreign horror is not about blood or being disgusting.

    Even changing the address of my eBay account to the US doesn't help... the Paypal account and the credit card linked to it must be issued in the US too...

    When you get billed for, say, iCloud storage or buy an app, does Apple automatically draw off this balance first or do you have to designate it manually?

    It should automatically come off the store credit balance first.

    Because many Apple fans are rich wealthy elite workers and families who don’t recognize the value of a dollar. It is literally not a thought on their mind - will I have enough for this movie and groceries - or should I even pay this much? Can I shop around somewhere and find it cheaper? Yeah, the family probably could, wait why? With it all in one ecosystem and money not really meaning anything to them, in fact they’d probably pay even twice as much as Apple currently rents for and not blink an eye about it. That’s Apple’s base, and why their brand and public image matter so much.

    It would be nice if the Apple Store and iTunes gift cards were usable both places.
