So I was just wondering, is it possible to purchase iTunes Match if I have $25 in gift codes on my account? Because I don't have a credit card, and my Paypal got banned, so I have no other way to get it. Thanks.

I'd be interested to know if this works. From what I read, you have to have a valid credit card on file for it to even accept your gift cards.

No! There are a lot of people that use them, without putting in a CC#.

Awesome. That means I can use it in the UK with my US account :)
From apple's website http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4914

You may use store credit to pay for your iTunes Match subscription however a valid payment method must still be on file at the time of sign up.


So I need somone of that "lot of people" to confirm if its possible to subscribe without us credit card.

However:

Damn. I guess I'll just ask my mom to let me put her credit card on my account for that purchase. Thanks.

I think not having a cc only works with the gift cards for regular purchases, such as apps and music.

Since iTunes Match is a subscription service, it makes sense that they would want one on file.

There are already posts here saying the same thing, you need a cc.
