When you make a purchase via Apple’s App Store or iTunes, chances are you might make those purchases by tying a credit card to your account, where you’ll be charged each time you make a purchase. However it seems that Apple would much prefer if users were to load up their accounts with money and are now offering users an incentive to do so.
Apple has announced that starting today, they will be giving users an extra 10% whenever they add funds to their accounts that will be used towards App Store or iTunes purchases. However there will be a limit and this limit is capped at $200, which means that the most you can add to your account is $200 which in turn will give you an extra $20 in credit.
This is a pretty good deal if you do shop a lot on the App Store or iTunes anyway. The only downside to this is that your money is locked in, meaning that you won’t be able to use it elsewhere. We should also point out that this is a limited promotion where it runs from the 10th of March to the 14th of March, so you will want to act quickly if you don’t want to miss out on it.
At the moment it is only limited to the US, but MacRumors is also reporting that over in Germany, Apple is running a similar promotion with a higher bonus of 15%, but that’s pretty much the only markets we know about that have such a deal going on at the moment.
