    I believe they take paypal now. At least that is one of the many payment options on my screen.

    I don't remember exactly how, but 3 years ago I managed to make an iTunes account without a credit card. Back then, I'm pretty sure there was an option to just pick "no credit card", but now they've apparently changed it. I'm still using the same account and I just buy stuff with prepaid iTunes cards.

    Gift Card and non us itunes account

    Not working. you cannot use gift card to purchase on US Itunes if in Canada and if not having a US account on itunes!
    You do need a credit card to open a US itunes account.

    it's not rocket surgery, the guys a Canuck so am I

    GO to an Apple Store, Buy a $20 gift card, register it on iTunes in the Canadian Store, and voilà, an iTunes account, money for 2.0, and some change for songs.

    Keep in mind that an iTunes gift card bought in Canada can only be used in the Canadian store. I would recoomend a US iTunmes card if you want to purchase from the US iTunes store.

    Maybe you can change your country after you set up yout account. Will the credit transfer or stay in the Canadian Store?

    Have a friend buy an iTunes gift card in the US and e-mail you the numbers.

    There's another way of doing it without buying a card.

    Go to one of those sites that offer free music and give you a code (like a gift card) . btw, not popular music offered.

    Then yellow pages is your friend.


    Now you can have your album artwork. Finally!

    They take PayPal, but I've never been able to get it working.

    You could also get one of the VISA gift cards with cash (I think you can get them at Walmart, etc.) that operates like a credit card. You then would only deduct from it when you make a purchase, instead of handing the money to iTunes between now and then. Just to Visa instead. But then you can use it anywhere as well.

    Want a US account, when in Canada?

    Outside of TOU, but buy a US$ Itunes card, go to US itunes store, choose redeem, set up account (since you have funds on the card, it won't ask for a CC), you will need a US address (where you get that is your issue.) Now you have a US account, other then some TV shows, and songs that are not in both stores not much point in this now, but Good Luck

    eh...

    You could always just buy an itunes card, click "Redeem" without being signed into an account and it will say something along the lines of "There is no itunes account tied with this card, amke a new one?" it'll take you to the registration page and instead of there being credit card options there will be something letting you know that the payment method is the itunes card.

    This would be the easiest course of action. A Mastercard or American Express one, or the virtual Mastercard number from Paypal Secure Card, would work as well.
