Those who are eyeing Apple Store gift cards can now grab them from Amazon India. The gift cards are sold in various denominations starting from Rs 200 and extending up to Rs 5000.
The users can use Apple gift cards to purchase digital content, including apps from Apple Store, subscribe to music, TV programs on Apple TV, games on Apple Arcade, ebooks and audiobooks from Apple Books. Besides the digital content, the users can also use it to purchase services and goods from Apple Store or for the iCloud subscription.
Apple gift cards come in the denominations of Rs 200, Rs 500, Rs 1000, Rs 2000 and Rs 5000. Amazon has a dedicated page for Apple gift cards. According to Apple, the cards bought from Amazon India will be deemed valid only for the purchases made in India. The users cannot redeem the same for cash, resale or shipments outside India.
Apple has also released a scam warning for the users concerning the Apple gift cards. If someone approaches the user to use the codes for any payment other than the purchase of Apple goods and services, it is likely a scam, and the user must report such incidents to the local authorities.
