If you're a Mac user odds are that you use iTunes. And if you use iTunes you probably have a credit card on file (who doesn't?)

Whether it's apps, music, movies, TV shows or books, there's no denying that iTunes and the App Store are great sources of digital content for your iPhone and iPad. 

Every year about this time I look for deals on iTunes gift cards and buy around $300 worth which I bank to use throughout the year. In fact, the time around Thanksgiving/Black Friday is the only time of year when you can get a discount on iTunes gift cards, and who couldn't benefit from 15 to 20 percent off things like apps and movies? 

In previous years I've seen discounts on iTunes gift cards at OfficeMax and Best Buy. Unfortunately OfficeMax is already sold out and Best Buy's deal is for 15 percent off ($100 card for $85) and doesn't start until Thursday at 6pm.

The best deal I've found is at Bed Bath and Beyond, which is offering $25 iTunes gift cards for $20 -- a respectable 20 percent off.

The offer is valid in stores only (here's their handy store locator), but it's available now, and there's no limit. I purchased 15 of them from my local store today. The offer is good until December 4, and it's the best deal I've seen yet. 

If you don't live near a BBB Target is offering $60 in iTunes gift cards for $50 -- also 20 percent off, but it doesn't start until Thursday (here's the circular). 

If you've got other Apple deals, hit me up on Twitter, use the contact link below or post them in the comments.

Happy hunting!

  • Really?!!

    I pick up $200.00 iTunes Gift Cards here and there throughout the year in Canada. That gives me an extra $50.00 for apps, books, etc. In fact I just bought several hundred dollars more because of Christmas gifts.
