How to redeem promo codes on Mac App Store

The idea behind promo codes is to share a free version of a paid app to reviewers and potential customers.
Promo codes can be redeemed through any store territory where the app is available. The promo application behaves like purchased one.
However, there are some restrictions:
  • Promo codes expire after four weeks from the day they’re generated.
  • They become invalid if a new version of the app becomes available.
  • Each promo code generated for an app can be used one time to download the app.
  • Customers are not able to rate or review a promo app.
So when you get a promo code, just redeem it. Don't wait, especially when the code is public.
