Stores like Best Buy would also incentives for buying from them. But finding such deals is already proving difficult …
The reason is Apple’s recent announcement that it is replacing separate iTunes and store cards with a single Apple Gift Card.
Starting today, you can visit Apple’s new unified Gift Cards site to buy one universal card by email or mail. Cards come in up to 8 different Apple logo designs and standard amounts of $25, $50, $100, or a custom amount. You’ll also be able to pick up the new cards at a physical Apple Store.
While discounts were common on iTunes cards – valid for media and app purchases – they were rare for store cards, valid for buying hardware. That suggests it will be equally hard to find discounted Apple Gift Cards in future.
