Costco is currently offering discounts on Apple App Store / iTunes gift cards for Costco members. This deal stacks with this quarter’s Discover 5% bonus at warehouse clubs, making for some great total discounts.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Valid through 2/10/18 (or while supplies last)
  • Limit 2 per member

Quick Thoughts

If you’re an Apple user and frequently download entertainment for your trips, these can be a great way to save a few bucks on money you’ll otherwise spend. If you have a Discover card, you can earn 5% cashback at warehouse clubs this quarter (on up to $1500 in spend) provided you have activated the bonus category for your account. If you are in the first year of Discover card membership, your cash back should double at the end of the year — making for an effective 10% back on these already-discounted prices. Costco Executive members will also stack an additional 2% back. In total, a Costco Executive member buying a $200 card with a first-year Discover card would get a net discount of 29.5% (17.5% discount with the sale + 5% Discover now + 5% Discover at the end of year 1 + Costco Executive 2%). That’s terrific.

Keep in mind that there is a limit of 2 per customer. I would expect that to mean a limit of two of each denomination — but during a previous sale, I ordered two of each denomination and all of my orders were cancelled. YMMV.
