    Here are instructions to delete your credit card information from your iTunes Store account:

    1) Make sure you're using the latest version of iTunes. It can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple website at:

    Note: Installing the latest version of iTunes will not affect your library or any items in your account that you haven't downloaded.

    2) To launch iTunes and be taken to your Apple Account Information page, click this link:

    (If you are not already signed in, you will need to enter your iTunes Store account name and password and then click the Account Info button to sign in.)

    3) The Apple Account Information page will appear. On this page, click the Edit Payment Information button, which is the second button from the top.

    4) On the Edit Payment Information page, select "None" from the list of credit card types. This will delete your billing information.

    5) Be sure to click the Done button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

    Note: If you established any allowances using this credit card, please cancel the allowance and advise the recipient that the monthly allowance payments will cease.

    To buy from the iTunes Store in the future, you can use iTunes Gift Cards, which are available in multiple denominations at third-party retailers, Apple Store retail locations, and the Apple Store online:

    Hey guys. I'm sure by now you've figured out how to delete your credit card from your profile, but I'm going to share what I had to do, just in case anyone else is in the same pickle.

    My cousin just got an iPhone 5 and couldn't download any apps because it said that she had an invalid credit card on her account. Even free apps were unattainable because of this CC issue. She didn't have access to a computer, so I took her iTunes login information so that I could look into it for her on my laptop. When I logged into her account, I saw that she had an outstanding bill from her old iPhone, which she lost last summer. The credit card that she had previously had linked to her account, was expired and has since been cut up. Luckily, her outstanding was only $9.03. So, what we did, was I payed her balance using my credit card. It accepted my CC without any problems, automatically paid the balance, and the "NONE" option immediately became available.

    As soon as it was available, I clicked it, thus removing my CC from her account.

    So, if you have a similar issue, maybe you can ask a friend to do this for you, too. It certainly beats having to create a second unnecessary iTunes account.

    I really hope that this was helpful for someone!!!!

    Good luck :)

    Read what I just posted. Maybe your account had the same issue?

    I hope you're able to fix your problem :)
