PayPal Offers 10% Off iTunes Codes; Get 12 Months Apple Music for 25% Off


For today only, PayPal has 10% off iTunes codes, available in denominations of $25, $50 and $100. While the 10% off savings isn’t a big deal (it’s the regular price at Costco stores), there’s an offer to get Apple Music for one year at the price of $90.

If you purchase a $100 iTunes code from PayPal, it will only cost you $90 after the 10% off. But according to iPhone in Canada reader @PatBouchard, PayPal will ask if you want to then purchase 12 months of Apple Music for $99. You can then apply your $100 iTunes code (which you paid $90 for), which means you just saved 25% off ($30) the annual price of Apple Music.

Back in September, Apple Stores started selling 12 month Apple Music gift cards for $99.

According to PayPal, the offer is “only available from December 14, 2016 (12:00 AM EST) to December 14, 2016 (11:59 PM EST). Let us know if the Apple Music offer works for you.

    You should add a direct link to the 10% off page. I went to and I didn’t see the 10% off and so Paypal was going to charge me the full amount.

    Other than that, keep up the good work letting people know about the discounts.

  • We forgot to add the link–thanks!

    Ooops. I was charged the full $100 on the iTunes code purchase but I did get the $99 discount on a year of Apple Music so still a partial savings. I see you’ve added the direct link for the 10% discount now.

    Worked great. I got a year of Apple Music for $90 Canadian. It was at the end they offered the year of Apple Music, but all good. Thanks

    Worked!! I always get the discounted iTunes cards at Costco (when 20% off) and use them for Apple Music so this is pretty sweet!!

    I don’t understand how this is 25% off? You’re paying $90 for something that costs $99. So, you’re saving $9. which is 9%, not 25%

  • Patrick Bouchard

    It’s 25% because like the article says, after you redeem your code, it will ask if you want to use it as iTunes credit or to purchase a year of Apple Music for $99 of it. Since a year of Apple Music at normal price is $120, and you just got it for $90, it’s 25% off. I’m guessing that this only happens when you purchase the $100 option. I should also clarify that it’s iTunes that asks the question, not PayPal, it happens once you’ve redeemed your code.

    When you want to subscribe to Apple Music, you can either pay by the month @ $10 per month, or you can buy a one year subscription for $99. That $99 is available any time from Apple, it’s not exclusive to this PayPal promotion.

    So all you’re saving is $9. You’re paying $90 for a 12 month prepaid subscription that normally costs $99.

  • Nice! My Apple Music subscription is now paid until the end of December, 2017!

    Last time I tried this with a PayPal deal it didn’t work, and I got a $99 credit on my iTunes account instead. This time it worked out though. Thanks!
