DIGITAL GIFTS FOR THE WIN: For a limited time, when you spend $100 or more on select Apple Email Gift Cards, you’ll get $15 in bounceback credit to Amazon by entering the code APPLENOV at checkout.
Apple products make for some of the best Christmas gifts out there; the glee on a teenager’s face when unwrapping the newest iPhone mirrors the delight in a grandfather’s when he learns that he can video call his grandchildren with this newfangled “iPad” device.
But the universality of Apple presents are considerably offset by the fact that they’re typically real pricey. Plus, sometimes people like having older models (leave me alone, at least my iPhone 8 still has a button. No need to pull down my mask to unlock my cracked and dented phone).
To be on the safe side (of both gift-giving and fiscal responsibility), try giving your loved ones an Apple gift card instead of a whole computer. They’ll be able to choose exactly what they want — iPhone, Airpods, etc. — and your wallet can take less of a hit.
As of Nov. 28 for Cyber Monday, Amazon is offering $15 in bounceback credits with every purchase of an Apple gift card valued at $100 or more (gift cards are available for any amount between $25 and $200). The offer is limited to just one a customer, so no buying two $100 gift cards for $30 back unfortunately, but it’s still nice to receive something yourself when you’re shopping for someone else. (Of course, you could also get that Apple gift card for yourself — we won’t tell.)
The emailed gift cards come with a customizable pattern and message and can be scheduled to be sent at a certain time/date up to a year from the date of purchase, so if you’re super prepared and have already gotten all your holiday gifts for this year, you can always get really ahead of Christmas 2022 shopping and have a card scheduled for next year.
To get your $15 credit, enter the code APPLENOV at checkout after adding an Apple email gift card for $100 or more to your cart.
