    Angry iTunes giftcards!

    Well annoyed. Wanted to get an iTunes gift card for the old man towards part of his birthday gift (got him an iPod dock for Christmas as he's listening to music more) but smallest value gift card Apple do is 15! Very annoying! What's wrong with the traditional 5 and 10 cards?!

    I suspect that Apple decided you couldn't buy much for 5 or 10 (there are very few albums for less than 10 these days) so not worth offering.

    I do agree with you that having the choice would be nice!

    Well, there seems to be plenty of choice these days as you can buy apps, individual album tracks, tv show episodes, audio books, rent movies etc for well under a fiver on there, not to mention that there is a good selection of iBooks are less than 5! I would have though that having a 5 and 10 option would result in more sales for them!

    Good point. I forgot the books and apps! Must just be Apple marketing towards a certain type of customer - those with more ...

    I bought a 3 pack of 10 cards in Tescos before Christmas - I know that means that it still spent a multiple of 15, but I got 2 gifts and 10 to keep
