PayPal on eBay Discounting $100 App Store and iTunes Gift Cards to $85

by

If you've been waiting for a new sale on App Store and iTunes gift cards, PayPal on eBay is once again discounting the $100 gift card tier to $85 for United States users. While the sale lasts, anyone with a PayPal account can take advantage of the deal, and you should receive the code for the iTunes credit within a few hours after the purchase.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

As usual with email delivery sales on iTunes cards, you can either enter your own email address and send the code to yourself, or enter the email of a friend or family member to send it as a gift. The credit will only be valid on purchases made on the United States App and iTunes stores, however. These sales usually last for a few days, so head over to PayPal's Digital Gifts eBay store to place your order before the 15 percent discount expires.

iTunes gift card sales are a great way to stock up on iTunes credit at a cheaper price, which you can then use to rent and buy movies on iTunes, pay for your Apple Music and iCloud subscriptions, purchase a new app, expand your iBooks collection, and much more. Many people also use the credit to pay for third-party subscriptions, like Netflix and Hulu, essentially discounting the cost of these services thanks to the gift card sales.


Also on eBay, the retailer today kicked off another coupon code, this one aimed at preparing for the incoming fall season. With coupon code JUMPINTOFALL, you can save 20 percent on orders placed in categories like home, clothing and shoes, accessories, luggage, vacuums, and more. This means that the code is not a sitewide coupon, but those interested can still use it on orders of $25 or more before it expires Friday, September 14, and the discount will be capped at a max value of $50.

In other sales, ahead of the Apple event Rakuten has AirPods for $127.46 thanks to its newest sitewide discount code SAVE15. Comparatively, AirPods have been seeing discounts to around $144 (originally priced at $159.99) at retailers like Amazon and Adorama. While a nice discount on the wireless headphones, shoppers should note that upgraded AirPods with "Hey Siri" functionality and a wireless charging case are expected to be announced in two days.

Shell out $85 at once or spend $100, say, over a year

At the end of the day, it doesn't really feel like you saved $15

Too insignificant

According to my purchase history, I spend about $0.99-2.99 per month on apps, rentals, etc.

This deal is worth it, for example, if you're about to buy a $100 app or rent a $100 movie or buy a $100 album. But how often does that happen?
