    About one month after PayPal's previous 15 percent discount on iTunes cards, the company has launched its latest sale for those who have been waiting on a deal to get some free iTunes credit. Like previous discounts, PayPal on its Digital Gifts eBay storefront is offering $100 App Store and iTunes gift cards for $85. While the sale lasts, anyone with a PayPal account can take advantage of the deal, and you should receive the code for the iTunes credit within a few hours after the purchase.

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

    As usual with email delivery sales on iTunes cards, you can either enter your own email address and send the code to yourself, or enter the email of a friend or family member to send it as a gift. The credit will only be valid on purchases made on the United States App and iTunes stores, however.

    Coinciding with the new gift card offer, iTunes has some notable discounts on its Movies storefront that might be of interest to users getting iTunes credit today. The sale prices include a collection of Disney films for $14.99 each, as well as some recent 4K releases for as low as $9.99. We've rounded them up below:


    Disney Movies on Sale
    [*]The Lion King - $14.99, down from $19.99
    [*]Beauty and the Beast (1991) - $14.99, down from $19.99

    I'd bet even 1080p Blu-ray blows 4K iTunes out of the water. Not to mention 4K UHD Blu-ray.

    Nice! When these discounted gift cards come up, I've been using them to pay for my Apple Music and iCloud storage subscriptions, as well as the occasional app or movie purchase. It's not a huge difference, but why not take advantage of a discount when you can?

    Well there goes $170, but money well spent since I pay for netflix and hulu this way.

    The 15% off e-delivery iTunes deals are great! If you buy enough and keep your account loaded with these, makes everything through the iTunes store $.85 on the $1.00!

    However, let me know about 4k deals when I can DL 4k files. Until then, it's practically moot. At least for my use case, YMMV.

    Yup, you have to sign up for netflix and hulu through your apple tv or iOS device, I actually cancelled my original accounts and re-opened them in order to do this. I miss the days of 20% and sometimes 25% off cards, but this isn't bad either.

    EDIT: Bills to my store credit See attached

    When people sell iTunes cards for a discounted price around here they are usually stolen.

    The one thing the iTunes versions do have over Blu-ray is the addition of HDR which really makes an awesome impact on picture quality. That said yes compression and audio quality are lower, but when people are still buying DVDs these blow past them in picture quality.

    I just can’t see myself buying any more Disney movies on iTunes until they release in 4K. They’ll eventually launch, but I doubt they’ll upgrade your current Disney titles like the other studios. That’s just Disney. So I’ll just wait, I don’t wanna have to purchase them again.

    Agreed, I purchase on iTunes for the digital aspect of it. Sure, UHD discs are better. However, with iTunes, I can take my library anywhere my Apple ID goes. It looks and sounds great to me.

    Also, if I’m being honest, my fat butt don’t have to get off the coach to start something else either. So that’s a plus.

    So does 4K UHD Blu-ray at a much higher quality and you'll most likely get a digital version (sometimes even a redeem code for iTunes) included for free anyway just like on the standard Blu-rays which are oftentimes cheaper than the iTunes version.

    Sorry but buying anything on iTunes just seems like a waste of money to me. You'll lose everything if iTunes goes out of business one day or if they decide to revoke your license or if you just switch to another platform that iTunes doesn't support.

    Good thing you don't make the rules and other people can buy whatever they want...

    Any series of events that would lead to Apple shuttering itunes and making previous purchases unusable would probably also make the digit world uninhabitable.

    Yes, it seems unlikely today but it's certainly possible. No one knows what's going to happen in the next decades.

    lol yeah of course just telling you my perspective.

    Just checked iTunes Movie Store in Canada and the movie prices are STILL $24.99... No discount, no sale price.

    And when the world is digitally uninhabitable twenty years from now, I'll bet you're gonna wish you had that hundred bucks back.

    Your jocularity elicited vociferous chortling from the depths of my personage.

    I've been holding out for a 20% discount because that's when I always used to buy them in the past - but I haven't see a 20% off deal in a long time....looks like I have to adjust my expectations downward and settle for 15% off

    In the middle of several books.
    The same can be said for buying anything in digital form.

    I down and activate all my purchases (movies, t.v., software). That way, I will have them as long as I want them.

    And buying gift cards to pay for iTunes is a wise move, when the gift cards are cheaper than paying outright.

    I used to hold out for the 20% discounts, but rarely see them anymore, then end up with a 0 balance so I don't wait anymore.

    so that would make it around 7.08 a month for the individual year one ? Is there a limit on how many cards we can buy?

    You'd have to click on the ebay link and see if there is a limit. I bought 2 without issue.
