You can ask for an Apple Store gift card instead of the App Store card!

    I purchased my second MacBook Pro today at the Apple Store and as the employee handed me a $100 App Store gift card, I kindly asked if it was possible to get a Apple Store gift card or rebate instead. I already have a $100 App Store card from my MacBook Air purchase last month and I haven't spent any of it yet. The employee said "let me see what I can do" and she went and got the store manager from the back who came out and said "sure, we can do that". She loaded $100 onto a silver Apple Store gift card, which I used to purchase a pair of Monster Beats! I just wanted to let you guys know you can ask for a in store gift card rather the the App Store card, which I personally find quite useless.

    I wish there was a way to do this on the online store.

    haha, I probably could have found a better pair of headphones, but I just bought the in-ear ones.

    Wow, this would have been useful for my brother who bought one earlier this summer. I should have thought to have him ask but didn't. Now we have a still unused 100$ gift card hanging around.

    Same here, I have absolutely no use for it. I've even tried selling it for more than %50 off and no one wants it.

    Unfortunately not, I'm planning to give it to someone as a birthday gift.
