    Hey, I recently bought a $20 iTunes gift card, HOPING to spend it on some nice apps

    BUT, I live in Canada.

    How does it affect it? Well, Apple states that if you are in CANADA, you CANNOT BUY an App from the Canadian App Store. You must have a credit card!

    THAT SUCKS!

    Thats the whole reason i Resorted to Jailbreaking for apps, I cant even legitly purchase them!

    Does anyone know a bypass for this other than emigrating to the USA? ._.

    There's nothing you can do about it. The iTunes gift card is registered as Canadian, so the code wouldn't even work on the US (or other) store and basically tell you to go back to the Canadian one. ("This offer is not valid in this country").

    I went through the same dilemma. Bought an iTunes gift card excited to buy some applications from the App Store (back in July 2008 when it was brand new) and then, being Canadian, was basically denied (which was a bit upsetting).
