We’ve known iTunes Gift Cards to come in specific denominations, but it seems that ahead of the holiday season, Apple is rolling out variable amount gift cards to retailers.
The gift cards will be available in any denomination between $15 to $500, determined by the amount you pay at the cash counter. Once you’ve paid, the amount is tied to the bar code on the card, which can later be redeemed through iTunes.
9to5Mac’s Seth Weintraub, who got word on the variable cost gift cards, says:
We’re hearing that at least one supermarket chain and one retailler are putting these on the shelves today.
At the moment, there is no place to buy this type of card online, including the Apple Store.
Currently Apple’s online store sells iTunes Gift Cards in denominations of $15, $25, $50 and $100. Gift cards for the Apple Store, though, are available in any denomination between $25 to $2000.
