Thank you! You just saved me $30! My Apple Music had expired and I was looking for a coupon to renew. I saw the Best Buy deal but it said it was only for new customers. I found your post but the link still said new customers only so I almost didn’t even try. But it worked! I got 3 months free! Woo hoo! Thank you so much!!
