From time to time, retailers will discount iTunes Store Gift Cards and I'm tempted to stock up since discounts are enticing ways to shop. It appears that Apple has three sorts of gift cards available in the US. I am interested in the usually colorful or music related one.
Originally, these cards only worked to buy music from the iTunes Store, but now my Apple ID works with several other store fronts in addition to the expected iTunes music store on iOS, Mac and Windows:
- iBookstore on iOS
- iCloud to buy additional storage space annually
- iTunes match annual subscription service
- App Store on iOS
- App Store on Mac OS
- Apple Store app on iOS for ordering product online or for pickup in Apple Retail Stores.
- Apple Store on the internet at http://store.apple.com
Which of these will accept a US purchased credit from a physical or electronic iTunes Store Gift Card if your Apple ID has a US billing address? Which of these will not be able to spend credit redeemed from the iTunes gift card. I do know that the Apple Store gift cards are accepted at the Apple Retail stores, but I've never seen them discounted or available anywhere but from Apple Retail.
