If you buy every single one of them you have an extra $700 saving to pay some of your devices insurance. Apple would gladly take that back from you.:D

Are you related to my wife? She's famous for highlighting how much she "saved" while shopping.:p:D

I'm always tickled when I see "free" associated with gift cards that only come with a required purchase. In this case though, I think it's MR that's at fault. Free shouldn't be in that description. Should just say "offering customers Apple Store gift cards...."

Still, nice discounts nonetheless. Anything to lessen the impact on the wallet is a good thing imo.

Amazed to know that just like iPhone X, MacMini is selling so well they don’t want to give people gift cards.

Maybe "Free of Additional Cost?" But that's straining the message. Because, obviously, without the offer you would normally pay $50 for a $50 gift card.

It's an MR style error imo. The gift card isn't free. It isn't even free of additional cost. Think about it. There is one and only one way to get the gift card. To get that A$210 gift card you have to spend upwards of a thousand dollars. So the card literally, figuratively, and contextually can't be free. Unless, as I stated earlier, you're my wife. Then all bets are off. There are hundreds, if not thousands of justifications as to why that gift card is indeed actually free. Straight faced and with no equivocation - she will have reasons. They haven't changed in the 22 years since I said "Well if I have to I guess I have to, so... I do".

In the UK they are basically replicating the US dollar pricing, I wonder if they replicate the gift card values.......

Yeah, what they're trying to teach in Money and Budgeting classes/courses is that it should be "spent less".

But that doesn't sound as exciting in retail... ;)
