I am 100% sure it's the right code, so I have no clue what's going on. Has this happened to anyone else before?
I called apple and they said it was a new feature put in place because of the fraudulent app purchases, and they said try my code tomorrow (I called yesterday) and it should work. But, no luck.
After calling Apple tech, I was told to do the following, which worked for me:
Go to Settings> Store> View Account> Payment Info and on the credit card type, tap on the type entered (Visa, MasterCard, etc.) and then scroll down on the menu and select none. Then click done at the top and now you can make free purchases including the iPhone 4 Case app, but when you're ready to spend money, you'll have to go back into the settings and enter all of your credit/debit card info again.
