Ken je de iTunes kaarten die je bij veel verschillende winkels kunt krijgen? Ze zijn niet alleen leuk als cadeau, maar ook erg leuk om voor jezelf te kopen.

Waarom? Omdat er vaak aanbiedingen zijn waarmee je ze met korting kunt kopen. Ze vertegenwoordigen echter wel altijd de volledige waarde in iTunes of de Apple App store voor je iPhone, iPad of Mac. Op die manier koop je effectief alles uit de store met korting!

Er zijn veel verschillende winkels (meestal niet online) die regelmatig korting geven tussen de 15% en 20%. Eenmaal hebben we een actie gezien van 25% korting, die was precies één dag geldig. De meeste acties lopen een week en gelden vaak voor specifieke kaart-waardes of bij aankoop van meerdere kaarten.

Welke acties nu geldig zijn en binnenkort komen kun je zien op iTunes kaart aanbiedingen. Deze werken we regelmatig bij!

Door na het kopen je kaart in te wisselen in de online store krijg je een tegoed ten waarde van de kaart, die je in zoveel kleine uitgaven kunt besteden als je wilt. Je hoeft dus zeker niet het hele bedrag ineens te besteden.
Veel plezier!

Elk jaar heeft Concept2 een Global Marathon challenge, waar je een halve of een hele marathon voor moet roeien. Ik ben voor de halve (21.097 meter) gegaan, en zie daar:
