What is Apple Arcade?
In terms of the service, Apple Arcade provides over 200 games, with more being added all of the time. Offering a fantastic collection of mobile games, Arcade originals, classics and some App Store legends, this service from Apple also comes entirely ad-free, with no in-app purchases.
Featuring a variety of games that easily appeal to anyone, Apple Arcade is available on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV, with users being able to play games easily across all of their favorite devices. There’s also Parental Controls and Screen Time options, meaning those with children can limit how much time they spend on the service.
However, did you know that Best Buy offers new and returning subscribers free Apple Arcade for four months? While you will need an Apple ID as well as a valid form of payment, users can receive Apple Arcade for free in thanks to a promotional offer from Best Buy. Best of all, redeeming this promotion is also incredibly easy.
What You Need to Know
There are some things users should know before they redeem this offer. The offer is only good for one redemption per customer. It is also worth noting that the Apple Arcade plan will auto-renew for $4.99 per month once the free period ends. Users will either need to keep Apple Arcade and pay the monthly fee, or remember to cancel their subscription. You must cancel your subscription 24 hours before the last day of your offer so as not to be charged.
Concerning Apple Arcade itself, users should also know that game availability depends on the compatibility of the hardware and software of certain devices. Additionally, some content may not be available in some regions and areas. Certain games may also require an internet connection.
Lastly, remember that you will need an Apple ID, a Best Buy account and a valid credit card.
