    Ok i just created an account and redeemed a 50 dollar card, and didnt fill out redit card information. So i go to buy MLB At Bat for 4.99 and i can clearly see my $50.00 credit from the gift card up in the top right-hand corner so i hit buy app and it comes up with a login prompt telling me it needs my payment information instead of just taking away 4.99 from the $50.00??? Is it just something i didnt do or?

    yeah it should be, hence the name, ITUNES gift card. the whole point of it is so you DONT have to make an account.
