nzkiwiman: Need one for my fathers birthday next week, any specials?
(I have $120 credit on my iTunes account due to an error, but I can't seem to give it to my father - I am now Android and will never use it)


Perhaps just 'give' him your account? That way he can spend all the credit and then switch back and keep all he bought?

Else find out what he wants and 'gift' the actual items to him from iTunes Store itself?
I'm thinking of something like the TomTom app that goes for $99ish, or if he's a boatie, iSailor with the NZ maps was a great gift I gave my father in law for his 65th?

Unsure why it would be so but you cannot "Gift an app" using stored credit. You can only buy with your CC.

Forgot about that, guess giving him the account to buy from might be the way then?

Yes that works but if his father is not very savvy technologically it could prove a little annoying if he has to switch back and forth between Apple IDs. It doesn't usually require you to do this just to update Apps but there is potential for it to be annoying.

You are right though - this is pretty much the only available solution.

Countdown mailer for next week (starting 15th) has 2x$20 for $30.  I believe the mailer we got was the 'Upper North Island' one so no idea about other parts of the country.
