    Are you in Canada? If so, then Apple doesn't allow you to use Gift Cards to purchase applications.

    A) We are not getting free WiFi, It's a rumor.
    B) It has to do with the laws and accounting practices in canada that don't allow apple to use giftcards for apps.

    It's not useless. Why not spend that money on music or videos? Also, take out your anger more appropriately. Not by cursing on an internet forum.
