    I have 50 cents left on my gift card. There isn't anything to buy is there? I've heard switching countries as a currency trick but that seems illegal to me.

    Nothing, just add it to your account.

    Speaking of low numbers I once had a 1.03$ in my account and made a .99$ purchase from the app store, apple billed my credit card the .02$ over what I had (sales tax), very funny to read my bill like that.

    That sales tax will get you every time.

    HA! You're all wrong. (jk) You can upgrade one song to iTunes plus for $0.30. ;)

    Go to the main iTunes store page, and at the right click Upgrade to iTunes Plus.

    Alright, you got us ... but that leaves ~$.20 for the OP now.

    Where are you?

    In the US, if Apple has a store in your state, they can charge you that state's sales tax for online purchases.

    Hmm....I don't think he can get anything after that. He'll just have $0.20 extra to spend next time he gets more iTunes credit.

    Alright, just finished spending 30 cents on upgrading one song. Now I have 20 cents left. Maybe I can donate it to the Steve Jobs Foundation?

    Damn! I thought I donated it to the band who made the song. Steve is always one step ahead! Blast!
