    Hi

    I bought a 25$ itunes gift card and clicked redeem.

    I tried to purchase an ipod touch application but it doesn't allow me to.

    It asks me to enter billing information and it doesn't download it at all.

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    Honestly, I have an account.
    I don't think you understand the problem.

    It says that I have a 25.00 in my account. However, whenever I click "buy", a user interface pops up asking me to edit my billing information. I'm trying to use this 25.00 for an application however it's preventing me from doing so.

    You can buy prepaid mastercards.
    It's like a credit card but not really.
    Google it.

    I had the same problem. I called customer service (it took forever to figure out how). But if you live in Canada, I guess its illegal to buy games online with gift certificates? Its pretty dumb but that's what customer service told me

    Yes. In Canada, iTune gift cards cannot be used to purchase applications. Only used for music and movies. I learned the hard way and did a lot of research after I got the iTune gift card. So I have no idea why they are selling them in stores. No point.

    As someone else has mentioned, you can also use a prepaid MasterCard or credit card to purchase applications in Canada.

    Exact same with me.... I find it really dumb. Wasted money and now I have to risk my credit card to buy games. It would be SO much easier and would have SO much more people buying applications if they would switch that lol
