    I go to boarding school (which I am at right now) and I would like to dl a song off iTunes but the account information is my parents. Is there a way for my parents to buy the song on there computer and have me download it on another one over long distances?

    don't you need a account to use the gift cards. All of my purchased songs are done with my parents account (aka I'm not getting the password)

    downloads arent billed to a computer, they are billed to a credit card, therefore as long as you knew your parent's account and password you can download all the songs you want and it will automaticaly bill them.

    but I don't have my parents password and for obvious reasons they are not telling me what it is. There fine buying it on their computer for now but how would I get it to my computer then.

    Have they already authorized your computer to play songs purchased with their account? If they haven't, they have to give you their password anyway.
