After you receive App redemption codes for iWork and iLife from the SUU Information Technology Department you will need to redeem them in the Mac App Store. The Mac Apps Store is available on Macs running OSX 10.6 and higher. If you cant find the Mac App Store App you may be on an older Mac OS version. If you are not running at least OSX 10.6 you will not be able to redeem your codes and will want to contact the SUU Help Desk. They will be able to determine if your Mac will be able to be upgraded. They can be reached by calling x8200 on your campus phone, at (435) 865-8200 if you are not on a campus phone, or by submitting a Support ticket at helpdesk.suu.edu

What is the Mac App Store?

The Mac App Store is just like the App Store for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. So it’s as easy to find and download Mac apps as it is to add your favorite magazine to iPad or a new game to iPod touch. You can browse Mac apps by category, such as games, productivity, music, and more. Or do a quick search for something specific. Read developer descriptions and user reviews. Flip through screenshots. When you find an app you like, click to buy it. The Mac App Store has apps for just about everything and everyone. Here are a few of our favorites.

Now that you are in the Mac App Store you need to go to the Redeem link on the right-hand side of the page. You will notice the link is highlighted and has a red arrow pointing to it in the screen shot below. Click on the link to bring up the Redeem Code Page.

Note that this is the same place that you can redeem iTunes gift cards. Now you need Copy and Paste the first code you were given into the Code box and hit enter. At this point, you will be prompted to enter your Apple ID and Password. This will associate the Apps to your account. After the first code is redeemed there will be a link that allows you to redeem another code. Continue this process until all of your App Redemption codes have been entered and redeemed. The Apps will start the download process as soon as you enter the Codes. If you have any problems please contact the SUU IT Help Desk. They can be reached by calling x8200 on your campus phone, at (435) 865-8200 if you are not on a campus phone, or by submitting a Support ticket at helpdesk.suu.edu
