Give a Cool Gift

Looking for a fun gift idea, especially at the last minute? Consider an iTunes gift card.

You can buy it, choose the amount, include a personal note, and send it all online.

No thanks, the person I need a gift for isn’t really into music.”

Wait!

iTunes is so much more than music; an iTunes gift card can also buy movies, tv shows, apps, ebooks, and audio books. Something for everyone.

To purchase an iTunes gift card, open your iTunes program (if you don’t have iTunes, you can download it free onto a Mac or Windows computer at http://www.itunes.com and set up an account), sign into your account, and click the “send iTunes gift” link under the Quick Links section. Fill out the form. The purchase is charged to the credit card you have on file with the iTunes store.

Your recipient will receive an email from the iTunes Store with your message and a link to “Redeem Now.” He/she can start shopping right away or save the credit for another time.

There are also other ways to give an iTunes gift:

  • purchase a (plastic) gift card on line to be sent to you by snail mail and then hand deliver it yourself
  • purchase an iTunes gift card in retail stores (usually by the checkout counter)
  • choose a specific item online in the iTunes store and buy and send that particular item

Consider an iTunes gift card next time you need to send a gift, especially to your grandkids. They will think you are way cool.
