The gift of One Globe Kids Friendship: send an iTunes gift card

Blog One Globe Kids, give stories from aroun dthe world with an iTunes gift cardDid you know that it is very easy to give your favorite app as a gift?

Would you like to make someone happy with our app to make new friends around the globe?

Here is how to do it!

(Before you get all excited, there is one thing to keep in mind. The country you buy the certificate in relates to the App Store in which to redeem the card.
We found out the hard way: sending a gift card by email from the US to a friend who has an account with the Dutch App Store didn’t work.)

The gift can be redeemed on any Mac, PC or Apple device as long as the recipient has an Apple ID or will make one.

For a physical, plastic, wrapped iTunes gift card

  • In Store: go the any Apple Retail Store, a pharmacy or a supermarket and purchase an iTunes gift card. These start at $15, which in our case will be more than enough to buy all One Globe Kids friends at once.
  • Online: go to the Apple website. Not sure why, but online the cards are available in any amount starting from $25. The cards will be shipped by mail. Use this link on your computer to get to the gift card page.

For a fast, email, gift

  • On your Mac or PC: do exactly as above, only instead of having the plastic card delivered, choose to send the gift card by email to any mailbox, within 24hrs.
  • On your iPad or iPhone: follow these 4 easy steps to send the gift of an app by email:
  1. Open the App Store by clicking on the App Store icon.Blog 3 One Globe Kids, give stories from aroun dthe world with an iTunes gift card
