Looking to save on all things digital at Apple? iTunes gift card deals are among the most popular store credit offers we see at DealNews. Sadly, they're not as common as they used to be; the number of these offers that we've listed has dropped by 11% year-on-year since 2013. But we still expect to see at least one deal on discounted iTunes cards per week in the coming months.

Before you go crazy at the first iTunes gift card sale you see, here's the skinny on where and when to shop — in handy infographic form, no less!

Something to keep in mind when shopping for new music is that you may be better off perusing the virtual shelves at Amazon or Google Play first. Although prices are pretty well matched at all three storefronts for singles, album costs can differ by a buck or two in many cases.

But if you covet an Apple-only album, and/or are factoring in the savings of an iTunes gift card discount, you're certain to get the lowest price around.

Readers, how do you cut costs when buying music online? Let us know in the comments below!

Discount iTunes gift cards mean I end up subscribing to more things on AppleTV that I otherwise would. Twenty percent off anything Apple-branded is like seeing a unicorn.
