Is anyone else having problems using store credit at the moment?

I'm getting this...

I had a problem before with a dodgy gift card code that I got on eBay so I'm a little worried when stuff like this happens. It does say "problem with the iTunes store" which makes me feel a little better I guess.

ME TOO!!

I was about to re-download an app I've already downloaded before on my iTunes, and was having a problem. I have a "one free song" credit I haven't used yet (from a Ticketmaster purchase), and I thought that might be the problem. But when I tried to use that credit to buy a song, the same exact prompt you show here came up! This JUST happened, and I was about to post here about it when I saw your post.

My Apple TV just emptied all by itself and is resyncing right now. A similar thing happened when I had store trouble before.

Still seems like a random side-effect though.
