Might as well have one of these since OT seems more interesting than the usual bickering over live vs. psn.

Now, who wants to talk about how LEET they are? -_-V

thumbing up my thread because I can.

It was quite obvious, but I would be remiss if I let it go without a slight complaint.

Here's a question:

I just appropriated $300 worth of iTunes gift cards, so...what the fcuk do I do with these things???*

I'd rather have the cash value, but my Asus Republic of Gamers Xtr3me3 Agoraphobia makes Craigslisting them a distasteful proposition. According to the Jobsians, Apple Store credit can be converted to iTunes credit, but I couldn't find out if the reverse applies so I figured I'd see if you hipsters had any ideas on how to make some lemonade with this...


*"Durr buy musiks and apps turd" or "give thems to mee!" and other "helpful" answers get a sweaty leg-stuck clammy vinegar ballsack splay to the face - I don't need anymore music and since I'm a Cydia kind of guy ditto for the apps

This is quite the conundrum. I knew that there are a few sites that facilitate selling or swapping gift cards so I looked them up and they only accept apple store gift cards and not itunes.

Depending on their amount and expiration date you could hold on to them and use them as gifts for birthdays or the holidays.

Droll, but I'm still in the same shitty iBoat stuck with these nigh-worthless iCards. Maybe I should buy Angry Birds like 100 times, then complain that I just discovered I could play it for free in the Chromium browser and demand mah munnys back but see if they could issue the refund in Bitcoins so I can go buy $300 worth of primo Kurdish hashish on Silk Road and perhaps one day find closure from all of this...

1st question back...what kind of loss do you plan to take on them? 25%?

I'd go to Apple.com and try to check out/buy an iPod shuffle, see if you can apply the giftcards to that. Your best bet to turning them into cash might be to buy two items, sell them at a small loss and walk away with cash.

This though...is your best, no loss solution, IMO

They are iTunes GCs, not Apple. Pretty sure that wouldn't work.

Burn them in effigy to the unholy one on your first step to becoming less of a hipster supporting douche.

You already shot down the idea that Apple = iTunes, else I'd say he just mugged some hipster d-bag dude waiting in line for the iPhone 5 coming out this summer (ala Samsung commercials.)

It would make more sense to send them to you so you could perform whatever ritual necessary for you to not be such a kunt. Or buy some reading for comprehension apps from iTunes, maybe; I said "appropriated," with the thought most people would be sharp enough to read between the lines...how disappointing - now I know how your parents feel.

I wouldn't be taking any kind of "loss" but I do understand what you mean - if I could parlay 250 out of these I'd certainly be satisfied, although that appears increasingly unlikely. Still, it's contrary to my Slickdealing ethic to let these go to waste. If anyone has a way to convert these to something useful, I'd love to know. Otherwise I guess I'll just buy good Karma a card at a time and hope its enough to be forgiven for nuking Megaton...

Trying to remember where I read about the one dude on SD that spends $5,000 a year on iTunes. Bet he'd help out. It is the same dude that owns like 4 Xbox's but didn't know you could hook them up and play on a LAN.

If you are hoping to get $250 for it, you could also do Ebay. $50 lots should get you ~$45 - fees.
