If you buy apps, music or anything else from the iTunes music or app stores, then these offers, flash sales, discounts and deals are a chance to save on both iTunes codes and cards.
I’ll never pay full price for an iTunes card or code – not that I buy them much at all anymore! Pretty much every week there’s a way to save, though perhaps only 5%. But if you’re prepared to wait you can sometimes get 20% off codes – however these are much rarer in 2018 than previous years.

Don’t forget to read my Ways to listen to music for less post too for the cheapest ways to stream music or buy MP3s and CDs.
One of the best ways to save is to buy a code which gets emailed to you almost immediately.
You can frequently save through Quidco and CDKeys. Tesco and Paypal don’t have deals right now, but they often do from time to time, and I’ll update when they do.
Here is my pick of current iTunes code discounts.
If you’ve not used cashback sites Quidco or Topcashback before, new users can get a bonus back to their account when they shop at thousands of retailers – including iTunes. For Quidco (min spend £5) you’ll get a bonus £10. For Topcashback it’s also a £10 bonus but with a £10 min spend.
You’ll also get an extra 7% off the total spend (rate can vary)
CDKeys used to be a fantastic place to save on digital iTunes codes, and it’s possible to get up to 8%, though it’s more likely to be around the 4% or 5% mark.
The current discounts are:
- £50 for £47.49 (5%)
- £25 for £24.49 (2%)
New users can also get a 3% code for their first order. To get this extra discount you must “like” CD Keys on Facebook. Then come back here and click through to shop.
They also sell cheaper codes for Google Play, XboxLive, Playstation Network, Facebook and Steam.
This is a bit of a weird one. If you have a phone with O2 you can buy iTunes codes via “Charge to Mobile”. This basically puts the payment on your monthly bill.
Now, if you subscribe to iTunes codes and buy between £10 and £30 of iTunes code this way for three months, you’ll get the fourth month free. This works out as 25% off the total cost.
Your subscription needs to be the same amount every month for those three months. You can cancel the subscription at any time.
You need to either have a monthly O2 contract or a pay as you go SIM.
*Use Nectar points
If you’re frustrated with places to use your Nectar points, you can now cash them out for iTunes codes. However, the value of the points is the same as if you spend them in Sainsbury’s or elsewhere.
There are less of these deals than there used to be but Boots, WH Smiths, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco will run 10% to 15% off sales a few times a year.
Apple Music is iTunes rival to Spotify. There are plenty of deals out there for Apple Music gift cards, essentially covering the subscription cost. I’ll update here with the latest.
Until 2016 you could get a £25 iTunes code for £17 with Tesco Clubcard points – but sadly this offer as ended.
However, you can get double value – or even more – on many other exchanges. See my guide for the best uses of clubcard points.
