Redeem Screen in the App Store on iPhone

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 promo code, either from iTunes or the App Store, directly on your iPhone.

You can redeem promo codes in both iTunes and the App Store. While those for iTunes are normally for media, you can redeem an app or game promo code in the App Store.

Redeem a promo code in the App Store

You can redeem promo codes for apps and games directly in the App Store app in a few steps.

1) Open the App Store on your iPhone and select the Today, Games, or Apps tab.

2) Scroll to the bottom and tap Redeem.

3) Pick Enter Code Manually. Then type in the code or paste it if you’ve copied it to your clipboard.

4) Tap Done when you finish.

2) Scroll to the bottom and tap Redeem.

3) Pick Enter Code Manually. Then type in the code or paste it if you’ve copied it to your clipboard.

4) Tap Done when you finish.
