The rapid change in the dollar against the Russian ruble has caused price increases not only for Apple devices, but also for applications that are stored in the official app store, the App Store. Russian users and many others are increasingly beginning to look for relevant methods that allow them to save money on the acquisition of any desired application or game on your iPhone.

In fact, not everything is so bad, there are legal ways that help customers get certain applications at a low price. We are talking about gift cards (promotional codes), which are generated by the manufacturers themselves for their VIP clients.

What are the App Store gift cards for?

Today, iTunes Gift Cards are the most relevant and sought after by many developers. It became known that they are released by developers only in order to test an application released by the developer at the initial stage. That is, the creator of a certain application has the right to create fifty promotional codes and distribute them to experienced programmers (journalists) in order to test and advertise their created product. Programmers and journalists get the finished product at a low price or, in general, free of charge, depending on what code itunes was issued to them.

ITunes cards can actually be issued not only by the developer of the application, among other things, the most ordinary user who is not a programmer or a journalist can get hold of a gift card.

Places where you can get a certificate from Apple:

  1. Specialized forums dedicated to Apple (It is there that mass distribution of such cards are often arranged, which can go to anyone (depending on the requirements and rules of the resource));
  2. Often, gift cards can be won in competitions that are played in social networks. (Having won the contest, you can get a card that you can later spend either on music, or on video or some kind of application in the App Store);
  3. Experienced application developers can sometimes share their promo codes with regular users (this is extremely rare, but it is also one of the most current ways today);
  4. Gift cards can be purchased at retail stores. However, their price is not so small, so this method is considered not very capable.

It should be understood that the cards received by any of the above methods have a validity period (in 99,% of the percent of cases is one calendar month from the date of issue), so you should not postpone the registration of this card in the App Store system. After the user enters the specified barcode in the system, he will receive those privileges that were added to the card he received.

It doesn’t matter from which device the barcode will be entered (laptop, smartphone or tablet), the main condition is to have an account with an Apple ID, and that the device has connection to an Internet connection to activate.

And it should also be understood that by registering an account and linking it to a specific country, it will be impossible to use applications from another country. An extensive list of all applications and games is available only in the US country, therefore many create American Apple ID, as well as carry out various distributions of codes specifically for the American Apple ID.
