View Full Version : Australian Gift Codes: Now what?

May 3, 2009, 11:47 AM
I bought a couple gift card codes from eBay not knowing they were from the Australian store. So I can't use them in the U.S. iTunes store. I told him about my problem but he refused to give me a refund.

How can I use these codes? If I use them in the Australian store, can I still download and play the music? What is the difference between the U.S. and Australian stores? Can I use them to download apps from the App store?

I'm and Australian, you could be nice and give them to me :).

I've honestly never tried registering for an account in an overseas store. You should give it a go.

I would love to have a US account cause you guys have more music in your store than we do. As well as HD movies and TV shows.

Just set up an Australian account. You'll need an address. Just use an address for a business. I've read in another thread that users who wanted to use the UK store used addresses like Man United's address for Old Trafford. Also, you'll need to use another email account other than you're one used for the US store. You can't use them twice. Good luck!

Thanks for the answers. I contacted the eBay seller and he is giving me a refund. I'm very happy it all worked out.
