Radio Update / Gift Card Offer

I have just updated to the latest version of iTunes and it appears that their radio service may soon be available in Canada.

You should also note that some Target stores are offering a discount of $10 on $50 iTunes gift cards until Nov 7th, 2013.

The offer is on the front page of my flyer. Please consult your local flyer for details.

Where is Puretracks ?

Puretracks and several Puretracks powered sites appear to have gone down over the weekend.

My brother made me aware of this problem last Friday and I had assumed they were updating or were subject to a glitch. But I am still unable to access the sites as of 1 AM Eastern Time on September 3rd, 2013.

Complaints about the inaccessibility of the site also appear on the service’s Facebook page. But I have not been able to find much of anything else online.

They haven’t posted anything on their Facebook or Twitter account about an issue, though the latter has entries from the 30th of August that imply Puretracks is gone, allegedly from people in the company.

A new version of Puretracks had gone online on June 14th, 2013. But apparently customers weren’t satisfied with the new site according to several Facebook entries and I’m guessing that some of their customers were lured elsewhere with lower prices.

More and more cell providers are also offering unlimited streaming of music so I suspect Puretracks may be gone, though I have no confirmation of this other than a few rare scattered pieces of information on the internet.

I’ve contacted Pizza Pizza in regards to this issue because they seem to be having problems as well with, a Puretrack powered site where their customers can redeem Peel ‘N Win music downloads.

I will of course update this entry if I find something else.

UPDATE: Pizza Pizza has moved their Peal ‘N Win music download code redemption to Universal Music Group’s
