Official "Was 20% now 15% off iTunes card" thread: post current deals here

Savings:
15% off
NOTE: Click the "Last Page" button to get to the current stores / offers.

Without undue speculation as to why (the drop in the Canadian $ perhaps?) 20% off iTunes cards haven't been seen since late 2013... so we're at 15% discount now as an ongoing thing... if anyone DOES spot a 20% off deal, sure, post it here, but since it's out of the ordinary and BETTER than the common 15%, maybe post a separate topic for it.

15% off rate schedule:

$25 on sale for $21.25 = $3.75 off which is 15% off $25
$50 on sale for $42.50 = $7.50 off which is 15% off of $50

3 x $10 = $30 on sale for $25.50 = $4.50 off which is 15% off $30
2 x $25 = $50 on sale for $42.50 = $7.50 off which is 15% off $50
4 x $15 = $60 on sale for $51 = $9 off which is 15% off $60


Original "20% off" information follows:

There are usually sales on iTunes gift cards from some place or another, but the upshot is usually 20% off. For example:

$25 on sale for $20 = $5 off which is 20% off $25
$50 on sale for $40 = $10 off which is 20% off of $50

3 x $10 = $30 on sale for $24 = $6 off which is 20% off $30
2 x $25 = $50 on sale for $40 = $10 off which is 20% off $50
4 x $15 = $60 on sale for $48 = $12 off which is 20% off $60

Not a week goes by where there isn't some retailer offering iTunes cards at 20% off... sometimes it's FS / BB, I've seen them on sale at Pharma Plus, even Food Basics. Shoppers Drug Mart. Zellers. Wal-Mart. The list goes on.

Since this deal seems to be regularly available, it makes sense to post the information in a single thread rather than making a new thread for every one. Like the Staples coupon thread, you just go to the last page of the thread and you can always see what coupons are available... in this case you would go to the end of the thread and see which store is offering 20% off this week.

iTunes Cards FAQ

1) Can I use US iTunes cards with a Canadian iTunes account, and vice-versa?
A) no. iTunes cards are nation-specific: UK cards at UK iTunes store, US cards at US iTunes store, Canada cards at Canadian iTunes store... you get the idea. This kind-of goes with the fact that iTunes ACCOUNTS are tied to specific country iTunes stores. You CAN have multiple iTunes accounts, with different stores, but that's a subject for some other FAQ elsewhere.

2) Can I buy ANYTHING digital with iTunes cards? Apps, Music, Movies, Mac OSX upgrades, etc, with iTunes cards?
A) yes. That is to say, there are no separate "iTunes" cards and "App Store" cards, despite the different graphics printed on some cards that suggest it is an "iBooks" card or "App Store" card.

3) Will I be charged provincial tax / GST / HST at the retailer when I buy the card?
A) NO YOU SHOULD NOT. If a retailer is telling you you have to pay tax on the gift card DEMAND to speak to the store manager, because you should not be paying sales tax on it. If the store manager insists, be sure to forward the store information to the CRA as they have a federal tax audit in their future. :-P

4) someone posted that you can pay your Netflix subscription with iTunes cards (purchased at 20% off, of course) thanks to rrraven for the link

(PM OP with FAQ questions / answer suggestions (or just questions that I can try to answer) and I'll add them to the first post)
There is no god. But it still feels good to be kind to people, animals, and the environment, so keep doing that.

This sale is over now, but earlier this month, Safeway sold them for 25% off (buy $60 iTunes cards for $45):
itunes-card-25-off-safeway-1113482/

Just posting this information for future reference. I don't know if anybody's seen a better deal for iTunes cards.

I did a self-scan for three different iTunes cards at Walmart yesterday and they all came up as full-priced.

Anyone know of anything valid in the GTA right now? No London Drugs here, and I'd love to get 3 cards as stocking stuffers.

Thanks in advance.

Walmart.com USA has the $50 iTunes card for $40 and the code is delivered via email so no shipping.

I realize that the code would only be valid for a USA iTunes account (which I have and anybody can create) but not sure if the Walmart website will take a Canadian credit card. I see that they also take paypal but not sure if you need a US address on paypal account?
I don't need a card today - I'll just wait til the 26th for the Future Shop sale...just curious if it would work for future reference...

Searching a little more (couldn't find any info on RFD), I found this page that says Pay Pal works...
