Apple Offering 10% Bonus When Adding Funds to Your Account for App Store and iTunes Purchases

Apple today sent out emails letting App Store and iTunes users know about a new promotion that offers a 10 percent bonus when adding funds to an Apple ID account.

When you add money directly to your ‌Apple ID‌ from a credit or debit card for making ‌App Store‌, iTunes, and iCloud purchases, Apple is adding bonus credit.

appleaddfundsbonus
Apple says the offer is valid on amounts ranging from $1.00 to $200, so customers who add the maximum $200 in funds to their Apple IDs will receive a total of $220 with the bonus ($20 free).

Funds can be added to your ‌Apple ID‌ account by opening up the Settings app, tapping on your account name, selecting the iTunes and ‌App Store‌ option, choosing your ‌Apple ID‌, and then selecting "Add Funds to ‌Apple ID‌."

From there, you can see the promotional bonuses available and choose the amount of money you want to add to your account. You can also get to these options in the iTunes Store by tapping on your ‌Apple ID‌ or in the ‌App Store‌ by scrolling to the bottom (or tapping your profile picture) and selecting the Add Funds option. To use this feature, you will need to have a valid payment method added to your ‌Apple ID‌ account.

The promotion will be available from March 10 through March 14 in the United States, and it is also available in other countries as well, such as Germany, where Apple is offering a 15 percent bonus. No bonus funds are available in the UK, Australia, or Canada, however.

Not worth it when iTunes cards are frequently available for 15-20% off.

Typo error. 10% of $200 is $20, not $220.
No error, it's a total of $220 with the $20 added.

I imagine if Apple cured cancer and charged a one-time fee of $100 for the medicine, people would still find a way to complain about it.

Spam Email to drive more Revenue

I also HATE their constant iTunes pop-up asking me to subscribe. You would think saying No once would stop the harassment ... oh wait Apple doesn't allow a NO answer just a Not Now answer, so slimy of them.
