You can use your iTunes gift card to buy anything from the iTunes store, App Store, iBooks or Apple Music. Also, you can use your iTunes gift card for the Mac App store. If you have an iTunes gift card and want to use it for your purchase, here are the steps to redeem the code.
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.
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.
Instead of using a credit card, select Use Camera to scan in the code on your iTunes gift card. Enter the 16-digit code on the back of your iTunes card into the Gift Card Code box.
Click on Checkout at the bottom of the window and enter your details.
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.
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.
iTunes will email you a confirmation email with your confirmation number and receipt for the purchase.

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.
