Tip of the Day: How Redeem a Gift Card or Code in iTunes or the App Store

If you receive an iTunes gift card or app code, you’re going to want to use it. You can redeem music in the iTunes app and other codes in the App Store. Doing so is easy and who doesn’t love free music and apps?

Open iTunes. Scroll to the bottom and tap Redeem. You’ll be prompted to enter your Apple ID password. If you have a gift card, select Use Camera to easily scan the code. If you just have a code, tap ‘You can also enter your code manually.’ Either scan or enter your code and select Redeem.

  
Likewise, you can open the App Store and scroll to the bottom of the Featured tab page. Tap Redeem. Enter your Apple ID password. Choose to either scan your card or enter your code and tap Redeem.
