1. Go to the iTunes Store

Tap Featured at the bottom of the screen, then tap Redeem in the right-hand corner. Tap Use Camera and scan your code with your device's camera. If you have not already signed in to an Apple ID, enter your Apple ID email address and password when iTunes asks.

2. Choose Your Desired Purchase

Select the music, movie or app you want to purchase at the Apple iTunes store. Select Use iTunes Gift Card as your payment option to apply the balance on the iTunes store.

4. Proceed With Checkout

Click on Checkout at the bottom of the window and enter your details.

5. Click Place Your Order

Select Place Your Order, where you will receive a prompt to enter your Apple ID and password. Once you log in, you'll see a summary of your order with an option to Use Balance. To redeem the gift card and complete your purchase, click Use Balance.

6. Review and Confirm Your Order Information

Check the total of your order on the Review Order screen. You can make any needed changes to the items in your shopping cart by clicking Edit Cart at this time. Click the Confirm Order button.

When you're ready to make a purchase, click Pay Now. If you want to finish the purchase with your iTunes account, enter your Apple ID and password. Enter the 16-digit code from your iTunes gift card and click Redeem.

Why does GetHuman Write How-to Guides for Apple Problems?

GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Apple in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. 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 Use My Itunes Gift Card for My Purchase? guide, please let us know by sending us feedback. We want to be as helpful as possible. If you appreciated this guide, please share it with your favorite people. Our free information and tools is powered by you, the customer. The more people that use it, the better it gets.
