Currently Being ModeratedJan 1, 2010 12:20 PM (in response to jeremy143)Gift card are country specific. You cannot use them in another country's itunes store.
You also cannot use another country's itunes store. You must use the itunes store for the country of your residence.
You could sell your gift card to someone in the appropriate country.powerbook g4, iMac 20, Mac OS X (10.6.1), airport express, iphone, ipod, ipod touch
Currently Being ModeratedJan 1, 2010 12:24 PM (in response to roaminggnome)That seems like a huge shame. I've emailed Apple and maybe they'll convert the CN funds to US $ in my account. Don't want to get into selling ITunes gift cards myself. Seems a BIT silly that they wouldn't have a ready answer to this probably common issue don't you think? Those of us who do business over borders probably get gifts like this all the time.Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedJan 2, 2010 6:04 AM (in response to AJHod)I received a £50 gift card from my father over Christmas but live in the US- is there really no way that I can use it? How irritating!Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 2, 2010 8:53 AM (in response to laurakitty)Evidently no way to use it. I contacted customer service and they were very nice about it, but they are not set up to exchange gift cards from different countries or to allow you to use the equivalent in your home country. They told me to either return it to the store who sold it or sell it.
I'm a bit surprised that Apple, as big as it is, can't handle accepting funds and crediting accounts. This seems to be a common problem with a simple answer.Windows Vista
