It's the last day to redeem the code you get from Target.
I just checked my email, I actually claimed it in the middle of May and had until 6/17 to redeem.

Target doesn't email you a code, instead it takes you straight to the TV+ App Redeem Code window without showing you the code first. Will TV+ auto-redeem from the link or do you get a chance to copy the code for later without instantly redeeming it?

I can only speak to the last time I did it in May. I did it in a web browser on a computer, and received an email from [email protected] with the code. I don't remember if it redirected me first, but I got an email from Target last time.

I've used the Target one twice on the same Apple ID account, which also had previous free trials. I had to create new Target accounts, of course, since it's one promo order per Target account, but it just takes a few seconds to do that.

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I was not able to apply the Best Buy promo to an Apple ID that had previously had promos. It looks like the Target one can be used repeatedly though.

The first time I did it, at the beginning of this year, I got a code emailed. When I did it for the 2nd time a few weeks ago, it went straight to the TV+ website to redeem, and asked me to sign in with my Apple ID. I think I was able to extract the promo code from the URL.

Good to know as it seems from the promo details the Target one shouldn't work on same Apple ID.

Apple + has to be the worst when it comes to movies and except for their exclusives 90% of the movies you have to rent or buy.

Right now, they are mostly producing TV series. I know you don't really like watching TV shows because you say it's too time consuming. But the ones I have watched are quality shows.

They aren't really known yet for movies as they don't license catalog movies and only make their own or they will buy the rights to like Greyhound.

If you want new movies, this is probably not the service for you.

You are expecting them to be Netflix whey they very clearly are not aiming to be Netflix.

Just signed up today for my free six months on my ps5. There doesn’t seem to be a lot on here, but what is does look good.

I happened to catch this in my Apple Card tab in the Wallet.

3 months Apple TV+ free for Apple Card holders. New and current subscribers (but not Apple One). My 1 year plan just renewed last month and this promo added the 3 months at the end.

Got a text from T-Mobile today that Apple TV + is now free if you are on the Magenta Max plan.

Signed up with no issues. Now I have free Apple TV and Netflix through TMobile. For those curious, the Magenta Max plan is $140 per month with autopay. I share the account with my mother and split the costs.

My new work phone gave me 3 months for free. It was so easy to activate. I pushed a button on phone and boom. That was a perk I wasn’t expecting.

I just realized Hauser has a bit part in Cobra Kai. Pops up in a few eps so far.

Re: Apple TV+ -- News and Rumors

After the expiration of all the existing Apple services promos a few days ago, Target Circle Partners has a new promotion for Apple services, including Apple TV+:

https://www.target.com/circle/partners

These promotions expire next year, 9/28/23. As before, the codes should work, even for returning subscribers, as long as you don't have a current, active subscription to that service. I think it's limited to ordering one code per Target account, but since it's a new promotion, you should be able to get a new promo code now even if you used the previous Target Circle promos. The Apple TV+ trial has been reduced this time from 4 months to 3 months.

Also, I think the generated promo codes expire after a period of time. So, for example, you can't order a promo code way in advance now, and then expect to use it next September 27, 2023.

Apple TV+ - 3 months
Apple Arcade - 3 months
Apple Fitness+ - 4 months
Apple News+ - 3 months
Apple Music - 3 months
iCloud+ - 3 months

Yep, he plays the completely moronic & asinine "Stingray"... I'm not sure how Hauser even pulls this off as he's quite an excellent actor in the few roles I've seen him in. A paycheck is a paycheck, I guess.
