How can you purchase additional cloud storage without using account credit? Want credit to remain on accounts as it was a gift for my daughter and we haven't finished using it yet but need to purchase additional storage for all of our accounts. Can't I just override the automatic payment from the account and just pay with a separate cc?

    Purchasing additional storage will not use account credit anyway.  It gets directly charged to your credit card, and you must use a credit card since it is an annual subscription service you are purchasing, not a one time payment option.  They insist on a credit card so they have a billable account for the automatic annual subscription fee.  At least it was that way when I did it.


    Sorry -  either I did not have enough credit at the time or something has changed since I did it?  Maybe call Apple and do it over the phone (explain why you want to do it that way)?
