As Black Friday and holidays draw ever closer, shopping lists continue to grow, and holiday spending budgets are constantly reconfigured. Why not throw a few gift card deals into the mix? Along with Best Buy, Target is also currently advertising a tempting gift card deal where you can score a free $20 Target gift card with the purchase of a $100 Apple gift card. The deal is live now and runs through November 28th.
There is an elegance and verve to the art of gift card shopping. It is one thing to hunt for deals and purchase discounted items outright, but it takes foresight, patience and mathematical skill to play the gift card game. Selling and purchasing gift cards below face value is one popular bargain lover’s pastime while others enjoy the thrill of mix-and-match deals and bundles such as Target’s featured Black Friday Apple gift card offer.
Things to Keep in Mind
There are a few terms and conditions for this gift card deal, along with some helpful community tips that can maximize your shopping mileage while buying and using your new gift cards from Target and Apple. First and foremost, this deal is limited to one per guest, so don’t plan on purchasing a large quantity of Apple gift cards—the offer is only while supplies last, after all. Additionally, you can’t use your Apple gift card to purchase Apple products at Target. Holders of the Apple Gift Card can use it to shop all things Apple —including products, accessories, apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, and more at all Apple stores and Apple properties online.
Fortunately, REDcard holders can save an additional 5% on their gift card purchase, which effectively reduces your total or adds a few extra bucks to your $20 Target credit, depending on how you look at it. According to Slickdealer MakeItEasy, you can use up to eight Apple gift cards in a single transaction when shopping online, but you have more flexibility if you plan on shopping in-store.
Slick Tip: Of course, you can take advantage of the variety of applications for an Apple gift card—a chunk of a new iPhone 12, your phone bill, Apple Store purchases and plenty of other purchases routed through your Apple ID. The sky’s the limit; user oghowie noted in comments that you could even pay your Netflix bill if you are signed up through Apple.
