|If you buy music, movies, television shows and apps from iTunes, you should know that by far the best way is using iTunes gift cards, rather than just using your credit card.|
This is because there is a vibrant market for discounted iTunes gift cards, so you can buy them, safely and legitimately, for less than their face value. Various stores have various offers at various times. For example, a common discount is two $20 cards for $30; a 25% discount. Sometimes you can get two $30 cards for $40, a 33% discount. And in the past, both Big W and Coles have sold them at a whopping 50% discount.
So you can see that, instead of paying $16.99 for an album, you could pay as little as $8.50, or at most $12.75. That might not seem like much, but of course it depends how addicted you are to iTunes. It also means that if you fund an “allowance” for your kids on iTunes, you should be giving them discounted gift cards instead.
However, buying gift cards on “special” through local retailers is different to buying them on Ebay/Gumtree, second-hand or just buying codes without a physical card. Never buy gift cards unless you absolutely trust the seller.
