Hi all,
just a quick question: with the holiday season upon us, I wanted to know how I can use my itunes gift cards to buy units. A step by step process would be greatly appreciated. I want to make sure to not use my credit card when doing it. Thanks!

    Sign into iTunes

    Enter iTunes gift card # and it will upload the $$ value of the GC.

    Enter MCOC

    Go to store.

    Click on desired purchase and it will use your iTunes $$$

    With Google, you can select method of payment when you go to purchase. Not sure about Apple. I assume you just use your Credit after it's applied to your Account.

    Any balance currently on your iTunes account (from a gift card for example) will be used first, if you were to spend more than your balance (gift card amount) the difference would be taken via your preferred payment option (credit/debit card).

    Apple will take your credit first and then use your CC if there is not enough balance. So if you have a $25 GC and buy a $29.99 deal then It would take the $25 GC balance and then charge your CC $4.99
    It will not ask you permission, it will just take from either to validate the purchase (using the credit on account first)
