I want to buy a code online. I remember I got a Christmas present from a distant relative as one: I got an email from Apple that someone had bought a code for me and the code was on the email so I just redeemed it on the spot. I want to do this, not get a physical card in the mail. How would I be able to do this? I want this to be all online.

Read this http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2736. You email gift to yourself. You will need an Apple ID with valid credit card to purchase gift.

It's highly likely that it's a scam - several review sites report them as such - and that you will get either no code at all, an invalid one, or one that reports as already having been redeemed. If you did get a valid code, you're one of the lucky ones, as many people report getting no code or a non-working one.

Why do you need to buy from a third party? You can do this from iTunes Store by send one to yourself.
