I am unable to open an account with iTunes Store because I have 54 cents remaining from a gift card. How can I spend 54 cents when the songs cost more than that? Why can't I donate this to a charity and get on with my life.

I am frustrated and exasperated, especially as Apple are happy to allow me to purchase software on my credit card.

    Try this page http://www.apple.com/nz/support/itunes/musicstore/giftcertificate/ and fill out the form at the bottom and see if that helps.

    I am guessing that you are inquiring about the iTS New Zealand.

    You can only redeem that gift card in the iTS of the country that it was purchased. A US iTS gift can only be redeemed in the US iTS. The same would apply to a gift card from the NZ iTS - redeemable only in the NZ iTS.

    If the link is out dated then delete the 'nz' and you should get to the main page.

    I did not have an account in the States.
    Then how did you purchase songs?

    You appear to have an account that is for the USA since you used a US gift card. If you are wanting to use the NZ iTunes Store, with an NZ credit card or gift cards, you will need to create a new using a different email address. There's nothing stopping you from having more than one iTunes account.
