How to use promo codes
Some rules and information on promo codes. For one thing they are single use only and currently work in the US only (Apple decision, not ours). If the codes were sent out over the Twitter stream for anyone to grab and it doesn’t work for you, that means someone else was faster than you were at copying it into iTunes. If the code was sent to you via direct message and it doesn’t work, reply back to us and we’ll take a look at it.
How to redeem a promo code
To use the codes, paste them into the redeem box in iTunes (Click Redeem Code on the right side menu on the iTunes Store home page). Here’s a direct link that will work for most people to the Redeem Code page.
Some legal mumbo jumbo from Apple regarding promo codes

To open an account you must be above the age of 13 and in the U.S. Compatible software and hardware, and Internet access (fees may apply) required. Not for resale.
