Black Friday iTunes? Why not!

Confession: I’ve always wondered if you’ve snagged a deal on a high-value iTunes card if a store would let you exchange it later for an equal value of smaller ones. (I’m seeing “no returns or refunds” on the Best Buy site, but I wonder if other stores are more flexible…?) But I’ve never tried it. Have any of you?

Today Best Buy has a $100 iTunes gift card for $80, and I am seriously considering snagging it and later breaking it up into smaller cards for stocking stuffers, birthday presents, etc. But I don’t know if it can be done. On the other hand, just about every teenager I know would be delirious with excitement to get $100 worth to spend on music and apps, so maybe the size works for some of you as is.

Free shipping, too, of course.

[Updated to add: Kudos to smartypants reader Jess for determining that you could buy the card, redeem it in your iTunes account, and then buy smaller-denomination cards (print the certificates yourself) from there.]


  1. Can you use an iTunes gift card to buy iTunes gift cards?

  2. ooh, jess — you’re smart.

  3. can you use them to buy an iPad?

  4. I amend my previous comment—just looked in iTunes and YES, you can buy email/printable gift cards from in there. Good call, Jess!!

    And Kay, no, you can use it for apps and music.

  5. I knew they were too smart for me…
