The deal only is only good for today. Tomorrow the price of the gift card will likely go back up to $100. The gift card qualifies for free shipping, and will arrive in time for Christmas next week. There is no option to just get the card for instant use, Best Buy has to mail out a physical card before buyers can get their $100 of iTunes credit.
The iTunes gift card is good for anything that Apple sells within iTunes. That includes iOS apps, music, movies, TV shows, and iBooks. The gift card will also work in the Mac App Store because it uses the same iTunes account.
Users who want a deal on iTunes gift cards, but want a number of smaller cards instead of one $100 card should look to Sam’s Club. The big box retailer offers a four pack of $25 gift cards for $84.64, a few cents cheaper than Best Buy’s card. The gift card package will arrive by Christmas Eve with free shipping.
Sam’s Club’s deal is better for anyone who has a few people on their holiday shopping list and no ideas of what to buy them. If the people on you holiday list have any iOS device or a Mac, the iTunes gift card is a great idea for a present so they can buy the apps, music or movies they want.
Big retailers routinely have sales on iTunes gift cards, but these are likely the last few before Christmas. They’re at least the last few that users can buy online for Christmas delivery without paying extra for shipping. Any deals in the next few days are likely better to buy in stores to make sure they’re available for Christmas.
