If you buy as much music on iTunes as I do, then you may want to invest in some discount iTunes cards. Costco Canada is selling a $100 multipack of iTunes cards, that is four $25 cards, for $84.99. That is a 15% discount on these gift cards.
All Costco orders come with free shipping, thus you only pay the cost of the cards and no more.
Costco Canada normally sells this pack at a bit of a discount. On a regular day, you can get the $100 multipack for $94.99. This offer is an extra $10 off Costco Canada’s regular price. In total, it is $15 (15%) off the retail value of those gift cards.
Gift card redemption is easy. You simply log into iTunes on your mobile device or your computer. When in the iTunes store, look at the right hand column. Under ‘Music Quick Links’ you will see ‘Redeem’. Just click there and enter the code you find on the back of your iTunes cards after you peel back the safety sticker.
As this deal includes four $25 iTunes gift cards, this offer is also fantastic for making gifts. iTunes gift cards are one of the most versatile gift cards you can give away as almost everyone uses iTunes these days. It is the industry standard. Not only do people purchase music on iTunes, they also purchase music videos, purchase or rent movies, purchase or rent TV shows, and more. You can also purchase more icloud storage if you are running low. I own a few TV series on iTunes including two seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender and two seasons of Sherlock.
The iCloud storage potential is of interest to me. My laptop refuses to perform a full back up to an external hard drive. The good people at Alienware (and by extension, Dell) suggested I use iCloud, OneDrive, or Dropbox as a backup. However, I use around 350GB of my hard drive. Thus, I will probably need to pay for storage and this iTunes deal would let me save money on additional storage.
These cards are for redemption on the Canadian only iTunes. They may be available in store as well (if you have a Costco card). You do not need a Costco Card to shop on Costco’s online website. There is a limit of five per customer.
