"Seven years later, we’re about to celebrate our biggest milestone for music, yet – 10 billion songs downloaded. Buy a song, and if it’s the 10 billionth download, you could win a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. It’s our way of saying thanks."

Users will be automatically entered in the contest by downloading a song from iTunes Store or they have an option to enter the contest for free by filling out an online form.  Apple says the promotion is limited to 25 entries per day, per user.

    Think about how little that gift card cost out of Apple’s itunes profits.

    Who wouldn’t give at least $10,000 to the person who downloads the 10 billionth file from their pay per file site? What are they 99cents per song? So Apple will have taken in almost 10 billion dollars, kept somewhere in the number of 30% of that, minus operating costs, and still, I’ll bet they have at least a billion dollars in profit and are giving out $10k in return? Big deal.

    How about giving out a $1,000 gift card every time they reach a million more downloads?
