Our foreign exchange student bought an ipod here in the USA. He got a bunch of itunes gift cards for christmas. He tried to use them but when he logs into the apple store it connects him to the website in germany and it will not let him use his itunes. Is there anything we can do so he can use his cards here in the US or in germany if he takes them with him?

    If the gift cards were purchased in Germany, the German iTunes Store will be the only one in which they cards will be valid; they cannot be used in the US iTunes Store. Since the iTunes Store terms of use prohibit a user from accessing any Store from outside of its country, your student will need to wait until he's back in Germany to use those cards.
