I was wondering if it was possible to signup for mobile me using either iTunes gift vouchers or purchase at apple store? I mean if I went to the apple store and bought the pack, would it still require a credit card on record when I try to use it?

They shouldn't. I originally purchased MobileMe from a retail box in store using an EFT-POS card (hell, I could have used cash if I wanted to).

Inside the box is just an activation number - similar to a product serial number. From there you should just need to go here (https://secure.me.com/wo/WebObjects/Signup.woa/wa/activation), and enter the activation code.

You will get bugged towards the end of the one year (or close to a month before it) that there's no credit card on record for your account, but from what I understand you should just be able to buy another retail box at that time (if you want to continue using it) and add on the activation number to extend your subscription.
