    I buy iTunes gift certificates...That way i know my budget and I don't overspend if I know I only have x amount of dollars left as a credit.

    To help offset this, I go to my friendly local CoinStar machine and dump all my change i've collected (for this purpose) into it, and retrieve the proceeds as an iTunes card.

    Most recently, after only a few months of change, I got about $25 at a Coinstar, and there's no charge to count it if your proceeds are turned into gift cards.

    I recommend this technique for anyone who needs to budget their App store expenses! Seriously, take all the change you find to a coinstar, even if you only get $5, that pays for several $1 games or even the big $5 game you've been saving for!

    That's exactly what I wanted to do to have some sort of control over my Apps budget, but in Canada, you can't use a iTunes Gift Card to buy apps. So, I have 50$ I am forced to spend on music and rentals. What is the time limit on these cards anyway?

    I try and do the same thing When I dont get apps from developers I usually save the spare change after McDonald's (I am a college student don't judge me) and at the end of the month I go to Coinstar and load up.

    I usually get around $34-50 a month, which all goes to iTunes.

    How exactly does this sound like spam?! He is lending advice to people who are on a budget. Apparently you are one of those people who just like to complain about everything.

    That's a great way to go about buying apps, but where I live (Canada), you cannot use iTunes Gifts Cards for apps :(
