iOS Tip: How To Redeem An App Store Promo Code

With a large extended family, that has recently all switched to Mac along with new iDevices, I get a ton of questions on how they can redeem their iTunes cards and promo codes. The way in which you redeem a code or card is fairly simple, once you know where to look.
It is a bit hidden BUT can be easily found if you know where to go.

Hit the jump for directions on how to redeem it via the iTunes app or directly from within the iOS App Store.

Redeem a Promo Code from your iOS device:

  • Launch the App Store app
  • From the Featured tab, scroll all the way to the bottom
  • Tap the “Redeem” button (see screen above)
  • Enter the promo code
  • Click on “Redeem” to download the app


And just in case you are sitting in front of your Macbook or iMac, you can also use iTunes itself if you choose.

Redeem a Promo Code from within iTunes:

  • Launch iTunes
  • Click on “iTunes Store” from the left hand sidebar
  • Look on the right side for “Quick Links” and click on “Redeem”
  • Enter your promo code
  • Click on “Redeem” to download the app

It really is that simple. Now get going and download some great games or apps with your gift cards from last Christmas!
