boodahpuhnk Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

I just got an ipad mini and tried signing in with my "boodahpuhnk" apple ID, but it said it needed to be an e-mail, so i used "nat.gui@gmail.com" which is the mail associated with my "boodahpuhnk" ID. But now when I log in to the itunes store with "nat.gui@gmail.com" it shows that I have $0 in credit, but when I login with "boodahpuhnk" it shows me the $20 in credit that I have. I would love to be able to use that credit to buy apps for my ipad, which is set up with the "nat.gui@gmail.com" ID... how can I do that?


Thank you!

    So would I, but Apple essentially considers separate Apple IDs as separate people.


    As much as it makes sense to make both of them your own, since you created them, unfortunately Apple IDs cannot be "merged".




    Don't give up though... try contacting iTunes Store Support and perhaps they could sort this out for you.

    I have multiple Apple IDs. Is there a way for me to merge them into a single Apple ID?

    Apple IDs cannot be merged. You should use your preferred Apple ID from now on, but you can still access your purchased items such as music, movies, or software using your other Apple IDs.
