20% Off $30, $50 & $100 App Store & iTunes Gift Cards at Coles.
Excludes $20 cards, maximum 5 cards per customer.
Thanks OP. Just wiped 20% off my tax debt.
That's not how tax deductions work.
maybe damoo inherited $7 million dollars from his relo in Nigeria.
@klownvandamn: Probably sent the card details for the $1000 deposit but the $7m is yet to arrive from his distant Nigerian uncle
we will see when my paid invoice comes in the mail next week
Of course it is… all you have to do is pay your taxes using your Apple ITunes cards via the app and you’re golden. I’ve but 100s of $100 cards in anticipation of June 30. In 2020, it’s the only smart thing to do.
Trust me, everyone is doing it…
Congrats for being the first person who post the same old lame joke in another iTune card deal.
It's both an honor and a privilege especially coming from you. Cheers
You're welcome. Here's your award: Stop trying to be a comedian and stick to your day job trophy.
Disney+ subscription effectively $72 for the year then 👍🏼
Is there a way to change to iTunes billing of you're on credit card? Can't see an option to switch.
i would like to know too. I dont see any option.
Think you will have to do it at the start…via an apple device
@Aemit: Can someone please report back if this actually works?
@silverrat23: Yes it works. Need to use an iPad/iPhone/Apple TV to sign up then you will get the option
i dont have D+ yet but when i changed billing details with Netflix a few years ago i had to cancel my sub via Netflix, download the app on an iOS device and wait for the sub to lapse (history retained) and then the iTunes payment option should come up again when you sub up.
That is a pain
@congo: not if it saves you 20% on your annual sub. you jsut have to set a reminder for the 1st day of the month and sign up again
Sadly Netflix doesn't do iTunes billing anymore for 'new' customers (if you're currently billed via iTunes, you can continue to pay that way)
@BeauGiles: Registering via VPN through Argentina or turkey is still way cheaper than using discounted iTunes gift cards for Netflix.
@Slo20: @slo20 is that for new registers only or can I let my sub lapse and then re-commit via VPN?
@mitchwho: Stop payment renewal, then follow new method.
Personally, I started a new account, for less chance of linking/dupe issues.
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/469062 (and plenty before that)
@User216204: @AssangesCat brilliant, thank you!
@mitchwho: Yes, You can let your current sub lapse then recommit with the VPN. have a look here. Argentina is the cheapest. I pay around $6.78 for mid tier subscription (you can pay around $0.20 less if you have credit card with no international fees). The saferVPN gives you 24hour trial with no credit card sign up required and has Argentina VPN's.
You have to close/cancel the subscription and re-subscribe from the Disney+ app.
Yep Disney+ is great value at that price
For those who asked - you have to let the subscription run out first to swap payment methods.
For example, cancelled my renewal, waited until it expired on google play then I could use Apple payment with the discounted itunes cards.
Question for anyone who has paid for this via itunes, after I have paid through itunes on an iOS device can I login and use the D+ account on a non-iOS device?
Yep, managed to login to an LG TV's native app.
Thanks for that, it's the news I wanted to hear
Yep, and up to 10 devices is my understanding - I've had no issues accessing it on any of the supported devices.
Yes, I can pay my tax bill! (I kid, I kid)
The scam about the ATO calling about a debt? (Or am I getting whooshed?)
No, you're correct!
Nah that's it. It's not that clever, but that's the beauty of the joke; even the thickies can get one for a change (well some).
To think this country has mandatory electoral voting and yet so many idiots is frightening.
@kiriakoz: The alternative is the US, where a minority of idiots can vote in a president…
@Jimmy Tseng: America isn't the only country that doesn't have mandatory voting. They have all sorts of other issues like essentially legalised bribery through corporate donations and a whole bunch of other issues.
The majority of people that I speak with are unqualified to vote (I don't even think I'm the ideal candidate - although I know most of the major issues). In this country, I hear people say "oh, I don't trust such and such" (as though they're voting for an individual and not a party). Very few people understand the key issues that they should be voting on (I'm not even criticising who they vote for, just the reason).
@kiriakoz: Yes, that issue is voter apathy, though I would argue is not caused by mandatory voting. What mandatory voting does is to lessen the effect of a vocal fringe minority.
@Jimmy Tseng: Most people in Australia have no idea about politics. Most. More than probably 70 - 80% (that's conservative). So on what basis are politicians and parties getting elected?
I get your point, and I appreciate that in America, only the extremes vote. However if we're going to force people to vote, maybe we have an online module they complete beforehand or something, I don't know.
Both situations are bad IMO.
America has the electoral college, so even amongst those who actually did vote, a minority voted for Trump, which doesn't prove your theory. He'll probably get re-elected with a bigger majority than last time, which doesn't help your theory that it's a rogue minority, it just shows that people still don't care even after he got voted in. America also has a donor system. Larger organisations usually finance both parties, and probably more so the Republicans, which makes it even harder to get your message across if you actually are for the people, which is another issue with it.
To simplify it and say the main problem with America is voluntary voting is wrong (not saying you're necessarily doing that, but want to make it clear).
@kiriakoz: I understand where you're coming from, especially the frustration where people vote without any knowledge of the policies. And it is actually quite hard to keep up to date with the policies and analysis, even when you Are following closely.
The system you are suggesting is actuly similar to what Hong Kong has. The criteria to be voted on would be business orientated, and loyal to the CCP. Sure, the criteria may not be what you want, but the same issue applies, where the politicians aren't representative of the population.
I don't have any solutions I can suggest, but my personal opinion is that I would prefer a system more in line with Australia than US or Hong Kong. I.e. mandatory voting and preferential voting and universal suffrage.
Go to OW for 5% price beat.
yes you can, i’ve contacted them previously and they said that’s their policy to price beat iTunes Gift Cards.
Yep, I do this every time. It's a shame they don't beat by 10% anymore.
Thank you! I never knew. Could we start purchasing now? Has anyone done so?
Or will they only price beat on the 15th onwards?
Only from the 15th. This deal isn’t live yet.
Surprisingly they haven't matched (online, anyway) yet - https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/apple-itun...
If you're in early this morning, you might get lucky (20%, then 5% = 24% discount)
Call them and they'll be able to price match. Or go in store.
Just went in store.
$38 for a $50 card.
Thanks for the tip! I just went in this morning and managed to get $200 worth of iTunes cards for $152.
That should settle some of the pricey subscriptions I have for a while.
I was able to buy a $100card for $76 today at officeworks!
Can you pay for iTunes card with a coles e-gift card?
I have, the last few times… they were thrown in with the rest of the groceries. I’ve never tried it just iTunes Cards only
Thanks! I will give it a go
Could before…not now
As long as the giftcard has enough to cover the whole transaction and no split payment it will go through. In manned checkout the it's a different story whether the staff allow or not
The last time it was the 20% deal, I bought one other item and was able to use the eGift card.
Didn't work for me today at a self-checkout.
Chose a 'split payment' option, as the total was more than the gift card, but the system raised an error.
Apologies but where else we can use these gift cards apart from.App Store
discounted streaming subscriptions
Like? I know of D+, any others?
Netflix for me. there have been rumours going around for years that they were gonna stop it but ive still got mine going strong.
@ADGRM: They stopped people signing up to it a few years ago; existing could remain.
@Randolph Duke: I cancelled my Netflix billing through iTunes after getting it through Turkey! much cheaper
@Maxdax: How much does your subscription work out to monthly?
@damunsta: hovers between $7.3 - $7.7/month (due to FX rate) for the midtier which is $13.99 here mate!
@Randolph Duke: ohhh so i should be able to retain that payment format? i understand Apple takes a ridiculous cut of like 30% or something which is why subs can't sustain the pricing structure
@ADGRM: No new subscriptions via iTunes from netflix from what I can find online. A lot of subscription services are heading in this direction as Apple takes a big chunk and unfotunately we all have to pay for this ultimately, to cover the Apple tax.
Apple Music, iCloud (expansion up to 2TB for backup & photo storage), Apple Arcade.
Note too that services like Apple Music are available as yearly subs, so if you get enough cards to pay for a year, you're getting both the 20% discount from the Coles/Officeworks deal, AND the yearly discount which for Apple Music is (144 - 119)/144 = 17.4%
If you like your footy; Kayo Sports.
PPV live events, like UFC.TV app.
I believe. They're a frequent big chunk of cash. So it can make a huge difference.
Ato, see comments above. I heard the Nigerian prince also accept it on behalf of the logistics company
I dream of 20% Google Play cards :/
Do Google Play cards ever go on big sales like this?
I've only ever seen 10% off or value add/back.
Can get equivalent of 20% off at Coles/Woolworths when they offer $10 worth of flybuys/rewards points on $50 cards, which happens pretty regularly.
Can we buy them by an e gift card?
E gift card being straight through iTunes?
You could perhaps buy the card from Coles, load it up as credit, then choose the Gift option through the App Store
wis i could buy wollie/coles gift card by these as payment
Supercell will be happy in 5 days….
I have Family Sharing, but not only can you not share In-App Purchases, my kid’s IAPs won’t use my iTunes Store credit either, being charged from my credit card direct for the full amount. Gonna grab some $30 cards for their occasional IAPs for this reason.
That sounds a bit weird. If your kids are on your Family sharing account then it should use any iTunes credit BEFORE hitting up your credit card. Thats the way its working on my account. As to not being able to share IAPs, that may be a Developer-specific thing rather than an iTunes thing. Think of it this way, the app running on your kids iDevice thinks its registered to them and so the IAP is registered to them as well. The app running on YOUR device thinks it registered to you, not your kids, it probably doesn't know that the IAP was purchased through the same BILLING account.
You might want to head into an Apple store and check with them just to clear things up.
I don’t know. https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT201359
“When a family member in a Family Sharing group makes a purchase, their personal Apple ID balance is charged. If there isn't enough balance to cover the purchase, the remainder is charged to the primary payment method on the family organizer's Apple ID.”
ie not Family organiser’s Apple ID balance.
As for sharing IAPs, it’s on the page of any app that has it where it spells it out…
Can you use these to buy hardware at the apple store?
You need 'Apple Store Gift Cards' to purchase hardware, I know the names are very tricky - Apple Store Gift Cards vs App Store Gift Cards!!
