    Got a couple iTunes giftcards that say they were never authorized - guessing the authentication server is down...anyone else?

    Mine worked, entered a code less than 30 min ago. This is the US Store.

    Same thing 3 cards from 3 different people none of them worked. Probably because the iTunes store is overloaded today.

    figured it out - thanks all

    looks like we tracked the problem to a 3 pack of iTunes giftcards from Target - none are working, so I think Target screwed up the activation. Guess my purchase of "Idiocracy" is going to have to wait until tomorrow :)

    Christmas iTunes Gift Cards from Target

    I also purchased a 3 pack of iTunes Gift Cards from Target. I still cannot get them to work and Apple will not help without proof of purchase which was tossed. Target won't help without a UPC number that was on the outer packaging. Does anyone have the UPC number or any ideas on how I can recoup my $30!
