    I would like to be able to offer free downloads of an iPhone app to a select group of users (for instance, people who have stayed at a particular hotel), but charge the general public for the app.

    Apple limits you to 50 promotional codes per version of an app. The target audience I have in mind is quite a bit larger.

    Can anyone think of a work-around?

    Have you spoken directly with Apple? I don't know how many promotional codes you're in need of, but they may work with you.

    Yes, this did occur to me. A big player like Starbucks may get hundreds of thousands of promotional codes, but will Apple pay any attention to a small fry like me?

    Well, I think that if you want, say, 500 they might work with you. I also think it depends on the success of the app in question. How many promotional codes are you aiming for?

    500 might be a realistic number for the first year.
