    Yeah, just ordered some myself. Can I use these to purchase MobileMe?

    I don't think you can buy MobileMe through iTunes can you?

    Oh, great deal. :) Will have to pick it up - for buying apps of course.

    I had heard you can't use iTunes vouchers to purchase apps. Please correct me if I'm wrong...

    I'm sure you can, or else the App Store wouldn't have provided the option to redeem voucher codes (although the option has disappeared now).

    I noticed this too, wasn't sure how that happened :confused:

    You can only use iTunes gift cards for anything bought through the iTunes store. Since MM is something else, then no.

    I've tried searching for MobileMe, but obviously as it is not a music track, video or iPhone/iPod Touch app it's not there. Plus, MobileMe works on a subscription basis and requires further information, so I can only assume that iTunes vouchers cannot be used for the purchase of MobileMe, unfortunately.

    PS: MobileMe monthly subscription charge please!

    Dang. There goes that idea.

    Now that push has come long, I dont think Mobile Me is anything special. Not for £60 anyway.

    It's basically only useful for Find My iPhone if you have compromising photos or fancy yourself as a vigilante justice type.

    Oh, ta muchly for flagging up the iTunes vouchers tho - got some reserved, and it'll keep me in apps for a while.

    It has its benefits, but in addition to the push notification service, I'd really like Apple to consider adding native support for IMAP IDLE across all supporting IMAP servers, meaning I could get push email without messing around with GMail, Yahoo, Exchange or MobileMe.

    I bought 10 this morning. In the long run it's a brilliant deal. Just be aware that offer doesn't go through on the tills yet because it's supposed to start tmrw. The staff at Argos were very helpful though and put them through for me after checking I assume with the manager.

    The link you gave says 'offer is in store only'.

    They don't know what their doing. Cowboy firm.

    Decent offer though, thanks to the OP for pointing it out.
