'Insufficient store credit' error even though there is enough credit

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to buy an app (using the credit from my itunes gift card) and I have 7 cents MORE than the cost of the app, and when I try to buy it it gives me an 'Insufficient store credit' error and doesn't download. Why is that? Is it that there is a limit as to how close the credit can get to 0 dollars or something? I've been using it a lot recently and all my other purchases have worked.

Thanks

Yeah, like the other guy said, it has to do with tax and the fact you're using a gift card. If you had a credit card on file, it would go through because Apple doesn't charge it immediately.
