i think it would be silly to get it just because you want the itunes rewards, but if you need a way to finance a mac or something then the card itself...it's okay i guess. if itunes is something you use a lot. i want a macbook and the next school semester starts soon so I applied for the card. i'm 19 and unemployed (but with income) and I was instantly approved. they're mailing me my card. I heard a lot of people say they were rejected or that it's hard to get, so I don't know why they were rejected and I was instantly approved. probably has to do with the fact that im a student and my parents are my source of income. I do have really good credit scores though. They pulled Trans Union (732) and equifax (dunno) on me. I'm going to buy it for christmas. about 1k in cash and i'll use the itunes reward card for the rest.
