How to Redeem a Promo Code in the App Store

By , Jun 4, 2011

We sometimes do app giveaways and every time we do one of those, there is someone to ask me how to redeem the promo codes. I really thought that we had already written a post about that, but after doing a quick research, well, turns out we haven’t.

In this post, I will show you how to quickly and easily redeem an App Store app promo code, either from iTunes, or even better, directly from your iPhone…

From iTunes:

Step 1: Launch iTunes and go to the iTunes Store.

Step 2: Make sure you are on the iTunes Store homepage, and look to the right, in the sidebar, you should see the following image.

Step 3: Click on “Redeem”, which should take you to this page:

Step 4: Enter the promo code in the text box, then hit “Redeem”. The app will start downloading to your library of apps.

From the App Store App:

Step 1: From your iPhone, go to the App Store app.

Step 2: Navigate to the “Featured” section.

Step 3: Scroll all the way down, and tap the “Redeem” option. You should now see this screen:

Step 4: Enter the promo code in the text box, then hit “Redeem”. The app will download to your iPhone as if you had purchased it.

Here you go. Now you know how to redeem these promo codes. We’re going to give a few promo codes away over the weekend, so make sure to follow us on Twitter and friend us on Facebook to be one of the first to be alerted.

      A promo code can only be redeemed once. It’s just a matter of being the first to redeem. If it makes you feel any better I too have never managed to get a code to work, guess I have just been too slow off the mark.

        What kind of asshole would give out the same code to multiple people? A well constructed giveaway would let people know they didn’t win by not giving them a code.
