Wow...Apple's greed has no limit. In these tough times, encouraging and enticing people to pile more money to their Apple ID account which will therefore be spent on apple products/services. Of course Apple die hard fans will applaud Apple for giving a 10% bonus. Tim has to pay for the masks which he is giving in the Corona fight. The giving of masks or the funds to buy masks is already giving Apple a tax break and now he has to double down by getting cash from Apple ID holders and through the sudden 10% increase on build to order MacBook Airs.
ok, no one is making you pile anything. those who were running low on their apple id account, can get a discount - why don't you try to look at it that way?

Funny... I see this as a savings to me because I give Apple a chunk of change for movies, iCloud storage, and other things. I'm actually happy Apple is giving me the opportunity to save money.

The hatred and backlash against Apple for this is extremely off-putting to me. I imagine the same people would bash Apple if they hadn't offered to save people $ by not doing this. People just love to be outraged at everything and anything these days.

Nope. Buy a stock MBA today and it's $999.99. Just like it was yesterday. Want to bump up the SSD as a build to order option? That $200 bump will cost you $20 more today than it did yesterday, assuming if you live in a country with a falling currency. That $20 extra charge works out to be a 2% increasing on the whole computer.

Can't afford the extra 2%. Or feel Apple should shoulder your country's falling currency? No worries. Buy a Windows machine and move forward.

Just added $200 to my Apple ID. I also get 3% cash back on the GoldmanSachs Apple Card. So the total bonus is actually $26.00 USD

10% bonus + 3% cashback :)

Curious if anyone knows if any subscriptions fees are removed from your AppleID funds automatically before stored CC?

Nevermind, found the answer. In case anyone else was wondering, under Payments & Shipping it states that Apple ID balance is used for each purchase first.
