Developers often use the App Store voucher system to provide free copies of their apps. These are usually offered when a new application is launched and seller wish to rapidly obtain reviews and shares for their new releases.
Gift cards are also available for online purchase. The giftee can redeem them on an iPhone or iPad and use the unlocked cash to shop the App Store and enrich the app collection of your iOS device.
How To Redeem Coupons & Gift Cards
To use your App Store voucher, open the market and make sure that you are on the Featured page. Scroll all the way down until you reach the Redeem button. Press it to insert your code.
The discount string can be either manually typed, or copied and pasted from the email or the web page, the channels that you used for receiving it.
But before entering the code, insert your iTunes Store password. Next, provide the 12-character string and tap Redeem.
How To Purchase Gift Cards
If you wish to be the one that makes an iOS user happy, you can purchase an iTunes Store gift card online and provide your loved ones the option to purchase $25, $50 or $100 worth of apps, games, music or books.

Contact them and volunteer for testing. Most will accept your request and offer a free download code.
