Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department. From there, we realized that consumers still needed more detailed help solving the most common problems, so we expanded to this set of guides, which grows every day. And if you spot any issues with our How Do I Check the Balance on My Itunes Gift Card? guide, please let us know by sending us feedback. We want to be as helpful as possible.
