Apple is giving its users an opportunity to earn some bonus credit on the Apple ID to spend on Apple's products and services, by offering 10% extra on top of any additions to an account up to the value of $200 before May 10.

A repeat of a promotion that last took place in March, the offer relates to the ability to add credit to an Apple ID, which can then be used to make payments in the various media and App Stores Apple controls. Running from Tuesday until March 10, customers in the United States with a valid payment card on an account can make a one-time top-up and receive further credit worth 10% of the payment.

According to Apple's terms, the bonus is applied on only one successful top-up during the offer period, and is available for values between $1 and $200. In reality, the amount that can be topped up differs depending on the device used.

On an iOS device, users have to go to the App Store and tap their name, then on Add Funds to Apple ID, then the amount they wish to top up. Via this method, the options are $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200, with each value also displaying the extra credit that users will receive.

On the Mac App Store, the process involves clicking the user's name at the bottom left then selecting View Information, and entering the proper credentials. Under Add Funds to Apple ID, the five values of credit are presented, along with Other, which can be used to select a custom credit amount.
