    I received a $500 Apple Gift card, I'm currently stuck in a 3 year contract (in my last 11 Months as of today) and I wanted to op out this year pay the $220 than sign a new 2 year contract and get the 5S.

    Will the apple store be able to do that or do i have to sell this card and do the all the transactions at my local Fido Store?

    $220 is the ETF? Pretty sure Apple won't collect Fido's ETF for them, gift card or otherwise.

    Well I guess I'll have to sell my gift card for a little less and just do the transaction cash, unless Apple does Cashback

    What phone do you have now? If you have a 4S or 5, why not just sell it (take the SIM out), then take the cash and the gift card and buy a 16gb no contract 5S for $700? Then pop in the SIM from your sold phone and finish out the contract on the 5S. Then next year, you'll be eligible for a full upgrade.

    I've literally sold phones and walked right into an Apple store with the proceeds...never missed a call.

    my 4S on both sides shattered, i have a buyer for $100 but that leaves me with $600 iPhone 5S after tax is still $812. Tight on money so extending my contracts the only thing i can do
