Apple Offers 10% Bonus iTunes Credit When Adding Funds to Apple ID

Apple is once again offering a promotion that provides a 10 percent cash bonus when adding funds directly to an Apple ID account in the United States and other countries from a linked credit or debit card.


Apple is offering the 10 percent bonus for fund additions between $1 and $200, with the maximum bonus credit topping out at $20.

Here's how to add bonus funds:
  1. Open up the App Store app.
  2. Tap on your profile picture.
  3. Tap on Add Funds to Apple ID.
  4. Select an amount.
  5. Tap Next.
  6. Confirm payment with Touch ID or Face ID.
The credit can be used for purchasing iTunes movies and TV shows, buying apps, paying app subscription fees, buying books, paying for iCloud storage, paying for Apple Music, paying for Apple Arcade, and more.

Apple kicked off this promotion earlier in November, and it will be available through December 12, 2019. It's a good way to get a bit of an extra bonus for ‌App Store‌ credit, and this week's Black Friday app deals can ensure that your money goes even further.

so an effective 13% off with Apple Card, I guess. 3% daily cashback on the next day. In addition to the extra 10% added instantly to your purchase.

It’s 11.8% off. You can do better elsewhere. You pay $194 effective for $220.

It's a trap.

There's no point in buying entertainment (movies, books, etc) that locks you into apples ecosystem.

So if I pay for my family to have Apple Music, iCloud, and TV subs, you think it’s dumb to take % off of that every month by paying in advance? So I assume you pay for amazon prime monthly and not yearly then?

Nice fear mongering but wrong. I know you can access movies purchased on iTunes on Movies Anywhere and vice versa.

Still doesn't beat the 15-20% off iTuness gift card promo's that retailers offer throughout the year. But it's a nice gesture by Apple.

Does anyone know if this works if I add funds from a gift card? I’m thinking of getting an Apple gift card for $100 with $15 off at Costco or wherever and then adding these funds to my AppleID account hoping to get that bonus.

Except for viewing the entertainment?

I’d be happy if you can just explain why anyone is willing to sell on iTunes gift cards at a loss. I mean, sale prices on products, coupons, or groupon, credit card “cashback” or points, are one thing - they all have margins built in.

But, this is just straight up loss. A $100 gift card cost Apple or CostCo or BestBuy or whoever, $100. And they’re saying, sure give me $80 and I’ll turn it into $100 instead.

I would assume that retailers buy iTunes gift cards from Apple at a discounted wholesale rate, then sell them for less than face value and still make a small profit.

Perhaps that's why Apple Store gift cards are kept separate. They might actually be worth their face value.

No debate or questions at all for me. Let's see...give Apple $200, get $20 bonus and 1% back on the CC...what's wrong with that? I pay $9.99 a month for News+, $.99 for data, and my digital newspapers come up for renewal in July. If the bonus is offered again next year, I'll grab it and send in the max (for the 3rd time).
