    Ok, i admit i have this paranoia of using my credit card for online purchases, so i thought i could go around the problem by buying gift cards.

    So i bought 2 15 dollar cards and loaded one of them into iTunes and tried to buy an app with the credit and I can't, now I have wasted 15 bux and have to find a taker for the other 15 dollar card (which is scratched but is not redeemed).

    Why is it that u can't use the gift code on apps, damn it?

    Open iTunes > Click on iTunes Store > Login into your account > Click Edit Payment Information > Tick None for Credit Card > Then under it should be "Redeem a code"

    Type in your gift code, it should be added to your total $

    I hope this works?

    That is a problem. Try emailing Apple. iTunes gift cards can be used for apps, movies, music, TV shows, and software updates.

    Unfortunately, it is true us Canadians can't use iTunes cards for applications.. also we do not get the Paypal method like you guys do. Which terribly SUCKS because im still trying to find a way to buy apps. I don't have a credit card.
