    Newbie question:
    Is there a difference between the iTunes store and the App Store? Can those cards from argos be used for both music and apps?

    I don't have an iPhone yet (hopefully that'll change next Thursday!) so it sounds like a good plan to get a couple of these cards, but I want to make sure I can spend them on apps.
    Cheers.

    Good call raymanster, cheers!

    I'd already got about four of the Co-op £25 for £20 and this is even better. :)

    Thanks OP, just went and got a couple. FYI, quote the number from the webpage at the till, and take a printed copy of the page.

    Yes, don't walk all the way there in your lunch hour, like I just did, without the stupid bit of paper. Who prints out stuff on bits of paper these days anyway?

    &$^$&£!

    Tempted to pick a few of these up too!! Can you use these even if you have setup the app store with your credit card details? When I press buy now the only option is to enter password... Not used these cards before so how do I assign them to my account?

    They did this last year for fathers day. I bought £90 worth of giftcards for £60. Saved a fortune on stuff

    Look for the Redeem button at the bottom of the iTunes/App Store page. Do this before you buy to add the giftcard funds to your account.

    My local Argos didn't have a clue about this. Reckoned you needed a print out of the webpage for every single card purchased. They ended up photocopying the one print out I brought with me six times, before carefully cutting them down to coupon size to put in the till! I was stood there for half an hour while this farce played out before me. What a carry-on!
