any way to deactivate itunes gift card?

I got a $30 one, havn't spent any money on it or anything but I activated it, so any idea how I could deactivate the gift card and then re-enter it ?

I don't want to sign out and sign back in on a diffrent computer I just want to deactivate the card so someone else can use it NOT on my account.

thanks

    Not sure what you mean.
    The amount has been redeemed against your iTunes account. You can't "deactivate" the card.

    Why not?
    Take about 3 seconds. You can log in on any computer you want but you don't need to log in to the iTunes store unless you are going to actually purchase something.
    Just don't let anyone log onto your computer account and they cannot use your iTunes account if you stay signed into it.

    Sign out of your iTunes account.
    This simply prevents purchases on your account,. It does not deauthorize the computer.
    The card cannot be used on any other iTunes account because it was redeemed on yours.
