Apple Music 12-Month Membership Gift Cards Now Available for $99

Apple has begun selling gift cards for Apple Music annual subscriptions at the discounted price of $99. The 12-month gift cards work out at $8.25 per month, offering an 18 percent saving over the standard $9.99 monthly subscription rate for Apple's streaming service.

Currently the gift cards are being offered at brick-and-mortar Apple stores and select third-party sellers like Best Buy, but eGift cards can also be purchased online at PayPal and Walmart for instant activation.

Elsewhere, residents in the U.K. can use PayPal's online eGift shop to buy 12-month Apple Music gift cards for £99, which works out at £8.25 instead of £9.99, for those willing to sign up for a full year.

Apple still offers eligible students 50 percent off an Apple Music subscription, while the family plan lets up to six people pay $15 per month, or $2.50 each.

The new Apple Music, which has seen a significant redesign in iOS 10, will launch to the public this fall.

I love that you can pay for Apple Music using iTunes credit. Currently paying $14.40 AUD a month family plan here in Australia because iTunes gift cards are always 20% off down here in Oz ;)

I would like to know too if this gift card can be used to fully pay or somewhat finance part if the family plan...


Yes it can (or apps for that matter), they do not earmark the credit for music-only. To that end this is nothing more than a discounted iTunes gift card, just with a psychologically creative spin by the marketing team. I wait for other promos or holiday events to stock up on iTunes credit for 60-80 cents on the dollar.

I always get Apple gift cards around the Holidays. Best deals in past years were $100 for $75, and you can easily find $100 for $80. I re-load my iTunes account for the year, and Apple Music automatically deducts from there. So I'm essentially getting my family plan at 20-25% off.

iTunes Gift Cards can be used as Apple Music payment, so can these similarly be used for iTunes?

Wondering if it's a way to get £119.88 worth of iTunes credit for £99!

Join Apple Music to stream this or just about every song ever recorded...


I wish, more like 70% of the music ever recorded with a bias towards the mainstream.

Oh, also I hope you like tracks/albums randomly disappearing from your library due to legal rights expiring; no notification no nothing, just the pleasant surprise of finding out just when you want it.

Just not worth the hassle right now, maybe in 10 years it'll be good (same goes for all streaming services).

Streaming music. Great for commuters but a killer when there is airplane, roaming or PLOPS on your schedule.


You can download you know.

Hmmm ... Apple is making Music more tempting.... I'm still not keen on the fact that I don't "own" any of the music. But at the lower price, it's a bit easier to swallow financially.

Did not realise the UK pricing was converted exactly from dollars to pounds without conversion!

Means the UK pricing works out at $13.38 per month.

No surprise there really.

$9.99 is £7.50 at today's exchange rate which is £9.00 including VAT, so it's £1 a month more expensive here.

Spotify and Tidal costs exactly the same as Apple so I'm guessing it's the UK music industry which is setting the price.
