Apple and PayPal announced that the iTunes Music Store (US only) will allow purchases through PayPal. While we’re sure that adding another payment option isn’t enough to make most people excited, perhaps an added bonus will wake you from hibernation. If you are one of the first 500,000 customers to sign up for iTunes using PayPal before March 31, 2005, you will receive five free song credits. Sign up now and you’ll be just in time to get the five favorite holiday songs that you’ve never been able to bring yourself to pay for. Sadly, if you celebrate Festivus you’ll have to wait for another year – an iTunes search for the holiday turns up nothing.
