Now is a good time to stock up on iTunes currency if you're invested in Apple's iOS platform, or plan to be at a later date. Like, say, when the iPhone 5 comes out, or the iPad Mini, if the latter ends up being a real product. Either way, you can grab a $100 iTunes eGift card from Walmart's online website for $80.

This is far from the first time we've seen iTunes currency marked down, though it's not too often we see vendors slash 20 percent from the cost -- it's usually 15 percent. Whether you're out of iTunes currency or just looking to stock up, this is one of the best deals we've seen. It's unclear how long the discounted price will be valid.

iTunes eGift Card

If you're an Android user, hang tight before jumping over to the perceived Dark Side. Images of Google Play gift cards were recently leaked to the Web, and it appears stores like Target and Radio Shack will soon start carrying them.

That's a nice deal for people who buy a lot on iTunes. I don't use iTunes much except for a few apps here and there.

Might be time to stock up on some Apple money. It's intriguing that they're only doing this now, this would have been a fantastic promotion during any of their last device releases. Maybe it's trying to give a boost to the new OS sales.

I can't see any reason for Apple to do anything to promote their new OS, seeing as it had the most successful release in Apple history with over 5 million downloads in the first few days of the launch.

Maybe its part of their strategy to increase the hype for the Iphone 5 release.

The only time I buy songs from iTunes is when they have their big sales like the early summer one.

"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."

Doing a promotion like this can get people to stay with apple when they update to new devices, If you have a hundred dollars in Itunes store you're not just going to go and get a device where you can't spend that hundred dollars.
